Course Description

Active Directory Rights Management Services, or AD RMS, allows you to protect against leakage or misuse of content within and even outside the organization. Content authors can protect their documents using certificates. To use the document, others must use a rights-enabled application, such as Microsoft Office and obtain an end user license for it. Active Directory Federation Services, or AD FS, allows organizations to collaborate by using a claims based authorization and it allows for a single sign on. This course discusses the concepts and components for AD RMS and AD FS and demonstrates how to set up and configure them. This course can be taken in preparation for exam 70-412: Configuring Advanced Windows Server 2012 Services, which is part of the Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate, or MCSA, credential.
