What's in the Guide?

The Windows Server 2008 Foundation Network Guide provides instructions for planning and deploying the core components required for a fully functioning network and a new Active Directory® Domain Services (AD DS) domain in a new forest.

This guide explains how to build upon a foundation network by providing instructions about how to deploy Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 802.1X-authenticated IEEE 802.11 wireless access using Protected Extensible Authentication Protocol – Microsoft Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol version 2 (PEAP-MS-CHAP v2).

Because PEAP-MS-CHAP v2 requires that users provide password-based credentials rather than a certificate during the authentication process, it is easier and less expensive to deploy than EAP-TLS or PEAP-TLS.
