About

Windows Server 2016 is an operating system designed to run on today’s highly performant servers, both on-premise and in the cloud. It supports enterprise-level data storage, communications, management, and applications. This book builds off a basic knowledge of the Windows Server operating system, and assists administrators with taking the security of their systems one step further.

You will learn tips for configuring proper networking, especially on multi-homed systems, and tricks for locking down access to your servers.

Then you will move onto one of the hottest security topics of the year – certificates. You will learn how to build your own PKI, or how to better administer one that you already have. You will publish templates, issue certificates, and even configure autoenrollment in your network.

When we say “networking” we don’t only mean inside the LAN. To deal safely with mobile devices, you will learn about the capabilities of Windows Server 2016 for connecting these assets securely back into the corporate network, with information about DirectAccess and VPN.

The material in the book has been selected from the content of Packt's Windows Server 2016 Cookbook by Jordan Krause to provide a specific focus on these key Windows Server tasks.

Features
  • Identify and mitigate security risks in your Windows Server 2016 infrastructure
  • Learn how to build a PKI and use it to issue certificates within your network
