Agreed. Business acumen, or at least a basic understanding of costs and savings, will enable an IT pro to show the people that have the money why they should spend it. IT pros tend to be much more...

The goal that the identity community is working towards is to use not just a master password, but a combination of unique identifiers to prove you're who you say you are. The list of these...

There are all types of encryption. Some are very strong...and some are very weak, and cryptoanalyzing (i.e. breaking) them is very doable. Brute force attacks run through bazillions of possible...

I'm still just trying to figure out what that photo is from :-)?

Sorry for the slow reply. Unfortunately, I'm no developer. If you haven't come up with a way to do it yet, I would suggest checking out Vittorio Bertocci's page, http://www....

Sorry for the inconvenience! The screenshots have disappeared, so I'm recreating them for Windows Server 2012 R2. They'll be back in the next day or two.

I've always said that a true IT certification test would be to work on a test problem while wearing a headset with management screaming in your ear for updates, progress, and "why haven't you...

It's per month. And yes, AAD supports OpenID Connect; it's even used for Azure portal authentication. It's clear to me that Microsoft is strong on standards support. When they choose to actually...

BTW, you can quickly see what apps have been updated by flicking down and looking in the Notification Center.

Hurray! I was about to complain about this loss of capability myself. Glad to see it's back so quickly.

The Stack Exchange author has some very good points; I'd characterize this as an "and" issue, rather than an "or" issue. In other words, Kerberos is indeed a heavyweight protocol that doesn't...

Good point. There are so many Lego pieces you can shuffle around in this area, it's easy to get focused on just a few. And it does seem like OpenID Connect will be a key one of those pieces.

There are a lot of good IDaaS providers out there. I don't like to recommend one or two particular vendors, because it entirely depends upon your requirements. I plan to build a list of IDaaS...

I’m not aware of any difference between XP and Windows 7 regarding DNS name resolution. I’d

I just had this re-emphasized the other day. The Tunein Radio Pro app, I believe (love the app BTW), can now connect with a facebook account and maintain your favorite stations, etc. across...

It certainly makes us scramble more! You know you're on information overload when you get upset from s l o w l y entering text from a TV remote.

Bihico, It's true that backups aren't enough for business continuity. In this case, I was talking about full-fledged disaster recovery where a site becomes unavailable. Clusters (unless they...

Murat, you do make a good point. Most SBS clients (not medium-sized, but very small) are unwilling to invest in a second DC (though nowadays it could be hosted on a Windows 7 or Windows 8 client that...

Correct as usual, Joe. But in my defense, I did say that the VM Gen ID is being incorporated into other hypervisors (it's in vSphere 5.1), and to look at the larger picture of the virtualization...

Techvet, You're right, I should have been more correct in my tenses. Happily I can tell you that the released Hyper-V not only has everything I described in this has more. Thanks,...

Adam, Perhaps I wasn't clear enough. Yes, it's perfectly feasible, and supported, to run downlevel operating systems in Windows Server 2012 Datacenter. But you don't need to spend the...

How long does it take to send 24 million emails? My wife got the breach notification TWO DAYS before I got mine.

Thanks for helping clarify the difference between signing and encryption, Dimitrios! I've tweaked that sentence.
