[MS-ADFSOD]: Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) Protocols Overview

Provides an overview of the functionality and relationship of the Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) protocols. AD FS offers a means for distributed identification, authentication, and authorization across organizational and platform boundaries. It extends the ability to use single sign-on functionality that is normally available only within a single security or enterprise boundary to Internet-facing applications, which gives customers, partners, and suppliers a streamlined user experience while accessing the web-based applications of an organization. The AD FS protocols that are described in this document provide for tasks such as sharing of authorization codes among groups of AD FS servers, obtaining security tokens for users from security token services, and integrating AD FS with preauthentication proxies. These protocols include [MS-ADFSOAL], [MS-ADFSPIP], [MS-ADFSPP], [MS-ADFSWAP], [MS-MWBE], [MS-MWBF], and [MS-OAPX], along with various industry standards.

[MS-ADOD]: Active Directory Protocols Overview

Provides an overview of the functionality and relationship of the protocols that make up the client-server and server-to-server behavior of Active Directory. The Active Directory protocols provide directory services for the centralized storage of identity and account information, as well as storage for other forms of data such as group policies and printer location information, a foundation for authentication services in a domain environment, domain services, and directory replication services in Windows. The Active Directory protocols are specified in [LDAP], [MS-ADTS], [MS-SRPL], [MS-DRSR], [MS-SNTP], [MS-LSAD], [MS-LSAT], [MS-DSSP], [MS-SAMR], [MS-SAMS], [MS-WSDS], [WSXFR], [WSENUM], [MS-WSTIM], [MS-ADDM], [MS-WSPELD], and [MS-ADCAP].

[MS-AUTHSOD]: Authentication Services Subsystem Overview Document

Provides an overview of the functionality and relationship of the protocols in the Authentication Services Subsystem. The Authentication Services Subsystem verifies the identity of users, computers, and services through the interactive logon and network logon authentication processes. Once authenticated, these entities can be authorized to access network resources securely. The Microsoft Windows client and server operating systems implement a set of authentication protocol standards, such as Kerberos [RFC4120], and their extensions, such as [MS-KILE], as part of an extensible architecture consisting of Security Service Provider (SSP) security packages.

[MS-AZOD]: Authorization Protocols Overview

Provides an overview of the functionality and relationship of the Authorization protocols, which control the process of granting access to resources once authentication has been accomplished. An authenticated request is not sufficient for access by itself; a corresponding decision must also be made to decide if a particular request is authorized. To accomplish this, several authorization models are provided under Windows. This document provides an overview of these models as implemented by [MS-PAC], [MS-AZMP], [MS-GPCAP], [MS-CAPR], [MS-CTA], [MS-DTYP], [MS-ADTS], [MS-COMA], and [MS-TDS].

[MS-CCROD]: Content Caching and Retrieval Protocols Overview

Provides an overview of the functionality and relationship of the protocols implemented in the Windows Peer Content Caching and Retrieval framework, which includes the protocols specified in [MS-FSCC], [MS-PCCRC], [MS-PCCRD], [MS-PCCRR], [MS-PCHC], [MS-PCCRTP], and [MS-SMB2]. This framework is based on a peer-to-peer discovery and distribution model designed to reduce wide-area-network (WAN) link bandwidth utilization and provide faster content downloads from a local area network (LAN) in a branch office. The Content Caching and Retrieval protocols support scenarios such as accessing content from a file server or a Web server where storing content locally from all locations in a distributed environment is not practical. If the Content Caching and Retrieval of data is unavailable or fails, normal file access would continue without caching using the SMB 2.1/2, HTTP, or HTTPS protocols.
