Should be cheaper than Cisco’s ACS or ISE systems for small to medium 50-1000 user/computer organizations.
Think about PCI/DSS (3.0) when analyzing cost/risk/liability/brand reputation.
# Remote Desktop Service (RDS) certificate for Windows VERSION 6.2 and 6.3
# This works on Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 Professional and Enterprise Editions, for both 32-bit and x64 CPUs.
# All of this required Administrator level “elevated” privileges. If you don’t know what that means or how to get an “Administrator:Command Prompt” then stop and find a different guide.
# 1) Add SHA1RSA certificate to “Run”
-> certlm.msc -> Certificates Local Computer -> Personal -> Certificates
# 1.1) Windows 7 does not have
certlm.msc. Use mmc.exe and the Certificates snap-in for the “local computer” and then continue on to step 2).
# 2) Get the cert hash(sha1) “thumbprint”
certutil.exe –store my example.com | findstr /r "Subject: Cert.Hash"
# Subject: CN=*.example.com, OU=Domain Control Validated
# Cert Hash(sha1): ff 65 98 ff d0 a9 ff f1 70 ff 53 2b ff dd 3d ff eb 22 ff 0a
# 3) Verify the subject line is the correct certificate and then cleanup the “thumbprint” hash by removing all space characters
# 4) The networkdriver has the right to read the sha1 thumbprint of the certificate from a BINARY registry key:
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations\RDP-Tcp\SSLCertificateSHA1Hash = <thumbprint>
# Example reg hack
REG ADD "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations\RDP-Tcp" /v "SSLCertificateSHA1Hash" /t REG_BINARY /d ff6598ffd0a9fff170ff532bffdd3dffeb22ff0a
# Only change this only as a last resort!
# 5) The revocation-list may need to be constrained to the local list with DWORD key if no CRL is available.
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\Credssp\UseCachedCRLOnlyAndIgnoreRevocationUnknownErrors = 1
# Example reg hack
reg add "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\Credssp" /v "UseCachedCRLOnlyAndIgnoreRevocationUnknownErrors"/t REG_DWORD /d 1

The Outlook Add-In can be download from this page: http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/downloads/60860f41-88ab-4bb4-8104-765feca9cfed/default.aspx
The primary function of this add-in is to add a few buttons to the Outlook ribbon to prevent people from replying to all the recipients of your message or forwarding it, etc. The add-in uses a facility built into Outlook and Exchange that is more lightweight than information-rights management but is not exposed in the existing UI. The add-in also includes a check for common email errors, such as omitting attachments or subject lines.
