Using File Classification Infrastructure (FCI) and AD RMS to automatically protect sensitive information

Using File Classification Infrastructure (FCI) and AD RMS to automatically protect sensitive information

Windows Server 2008 R2 File Classification Infrastructure provides a built-in solution for file classification allowing administrators to automate manual processes with predefined policies based on the data’s business value.  (Windows Server 2008 R2 File Classification Infrastructure – Managing data based on business value)

The Active Directory Rights Management Services Bulk Protection Tool provides a command-line interface that you can use to decrypt AD RMS protected files. You can also use it to encrypt multiple files to a predefined rights policy template.

Together, the AD RMS Bulk Protection Tool and FCI, can be used to create file classification and encryption based on pre-defined rules

  • Discover and classify: You can configure the FCI automatic classification to automatically classify files that contain sensitive information such as keywords (e.g.: Confidential) or regular expressions (e.g.: \d\d\d-\d\d-\d\d\d\d for a social security combination) on your file server
  • Protect: Configure the FCI file management tasks to apply RMS protection to all files that are marked as sensitive

Step by step guidance on how to protect sensitive information using FCI and AD RMS is available at: Active Directory Rights Management Services Bulk Protection Tool and File Classification Infrastructure Step-by-Step

  • Hi,

    I've just discovered FCI and it looks like it's going to be very useful to me in implementing ISO27001 (Information Security) which requires classification of data.

    Is there a development roadmap for FCI? I appreciate that it's a new feature and perhaps more of a foundation for other products to sit on top of, but there seem to be some key functionality missing or in need of improvement.

    Whilst the automated bulk classifiation is useful, the ability for users to self classify their data is also important. The options for editing calssification attributes in Office do exist, but are pretty well hidden and not easy to use. I know the Titus products address this, but will this be improved in future releases of Office?

    My second major issue is, unless I'm missing something, there seems to be no integration with Windows Explorer. There is no way to view or edit the classification attributes on files.

    So, I'd love to know how FCI is likely to develop in the future and to what timescale?

    Thanks,

    Tim
