Windows Server Rights Management Services CAL

Basic rights-management restrictions on a Word documentBecause e-mail is a technology not designed with security in mind, protecting sensitive information in e-mail has always been a challenge. Most encryption solutions require users to work with their e-mail client in a slightly different way if mail needs to be encrypted or signed, especially if the intended recipient isn’t a company employee. Files can also be secured in transit, using technologies such as IPsec or SSL; or at rest on the disk, using NTFS, EFS and BitLocker. But once moved and stored in a different location, all the effort to secure the document is lost.

Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS) encrypts e-mail messages and documents, additionally storing usage information with each file, determining who can view, copy, forward or print the document. Only the original owner can change or revoke these permissions.

When using Exchange 2010 and AD RMS together, Transport Protection Rules can be configured to automatically protect e-mail messages. Exchange is able to work with encrypted messages so that standard functionality — such as the ability to scan for malware and index message content — isn’t impaired.

Usage Scenarios

Almost everyone knows someone (or is someone) who has forwarded e-mail to the wrong person by mistake, so when sensitive documents are distributed by e-mail, it’s important to ensure that only specific employees are able to work with the contents.

Most security breaches involve insiders accidentally or maliciously leaking information. Depending on the results of a risk assessment, sensitive communications — including financial reports, HR documents and anything that contains valuable intellectual property — should be secured for in-house consumption only.

Infrastructure Choices

To extend RMS functionality beyond the corporate firewall, you can create a dedicated AD RMS cluster in a separate AD forest with a container that holds accounts for your external partners. The RMS service must also be published on the Internet or in an extranet. A trust can then be established between the two internal RMS clusters, allowing users outside the company to work with encrypted documents. The disadvantage of this method is that credentials must be managed for external users, increasing administrative overhead and the likelihood of a security breach.

Alternatively, Windows Live IDs can be used for authenticating external users, but this is best suited to one-off scenarios where an external partner needs to view an RMS-protected document. Windows Live IDs cannot be added to Active Directory (AD) groups and have only basic assurance by means of a password, so they are not deemed suitable for use in situations where a high level of trust is required.

As I've posted in my previous posts that I have a client that recently upgraded a few things to Apple. Including their server.
I'm comfortable with windows server just not Apple. Their IT gave us the admin password for their server but it seems thats not enough.
Server monitor says "CANNOT_LOAD_BUNDLE_ERR"
the Admin credentials I log on with don't seem to work for Workgroup Manager all the time. Meaning sometimes it lets me log in, some times it doesnt. When it does it doesn't let me make any changes to the workgroup.
Whats up?

Workgroup Manager

by YodaTech

You CAN rename from the desktop but the shared name may stay the original name. Shares can have a name that's different from the actual volume or folder name; for example, you can have a folder called "My Stuff" but have it shared under the name "AUGWELL DATA".
Launch the Workgroup Manager app, login to your server, click the SHARING button at the top, then the SHARE POINTS tab on the left side. Select the share you're trying to rename, click the PROTOCOLS tab on the right side, and you will see a field for a custom name under "Apple File Settings" and "Windows File Settings"

Sorta. It's a windowing system

by Science-O

That lets you install some kind of GUI (like Gnome or KDE). It lacks the widgets and function you normally associate with modern GUIs. What makes it interesting in a client/server model that lets the operating system open windows on different displays. So I can SSH from my home Mac into a UNIX machine at work, set my Mac as the display for my account, and have the machine in another physical location use my Mac's screen to draw its windows. Or vice-verse: I'm logged into Craiglist using a browser that is running on my home Linux box, but it draws the window on my work machine's screen. My personal email and browsing doesn't occur on my work machine

Look beyond APM to unified performance monitoring  — TechTarget
ORLANDO, Fla. -- The lack of interoperability among traditional performance monitoring tools means data centers must use -- and pay for -- multiple tools. But movement toward unified performance monitoring could change all that.
