Microsoft made available two new guides: “Infrastructure Planning and Design guide for Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager 2010 provides actionable guidance for designing FIM 2010 infrastructure. Follow step-by-step process to determine FIM components necessary for fulfilling your organization’s identity-management needs, and design an infrastructure with right deployment topology for meeting your performance and availability requirements.” And “IPD guide for Active Directory Certificate Services (AD CS) outlines the critical infrastructure design elements that’re key to a successful implementation of AD CS. Using this guide will result in a certificate services design, optimized to meet the needs of your organization at lowest cost.” Both guides can be used together to design a FIM certificate-brokering service integrated with AD CS to deliver identity-managed certificate services, noted Microsoft.
