The Demystified Series is pleased to present a collection of screencasts on Windows Authorization Manager (AzMan). Keith Brown, a contributing editor for MSDN Magazine and co-founder of PluralSight, states that this series provides, “…what may be your first look at Authorization Manager – a hidden gem in Windows that can help you build Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) into your applications.” I trust you will discover this statement to be true for yourself as well.
In this fourth session “AzMan on Windows Server Code Name “Longhorn” and Windows Vista,” the future is now! In this screencast Keith highlights the new features for AzMan that are present in “Longhorn” and Windows Vista. Several new capabilities and programming efficiencies are in store for developers that want to leverage this new version of AzMan. Keith also talks about some of the key performance enhancements that were made as well. Of course you can’t experience server-side development with this new version of AzMan until “Longhorn” ships – but if you just can’t wait, go to your Windows Vista machine and Run… azman.msc. The future is now!
