New features in Windows Vista Wireless group policy provided the Microsoft Identity and Access Management (IAM) team with the ability to deploy a group policy object to automatically configure wireless
network settings for Windows Vista and Windows XP clients. The team was able to leverage the new interoperability feature to configure wireless network settings for both Windows Vista and Windows XP within a single group policy object in each
domain. The enhanced security features allowed the team to block clients from connecting to specific Adhoc networks and configure stronger authentication and encryption methods.
In this interview Michael Murphy speaks with Brian Davies about the team's design and deployment methods for the group policy rollout.
