Windows Server 2008 PKI and Certificate Security

Fresh out of press (ok, it is out since beginning of April but I just saw it now): Brian Komar, the well-known author of several PKI books on Windows Server just released a new book called Windows Server 2008 PKI and Certificate Security. If you are planning a Windows Server 2008 PKI, this is a must-read (at least knowing Brian's books J).

Here is the abstract:

Get in-depth guidance for designing and implementing certificate-based security solutions—straight from PKI expert Brian Komar. No need to buy or outsource costly PKI services when you can use the robust PKI and certificate-based security services already built into Windows Server 2008! This in-depth reference teaches you how to design and implement even the most demanding certificate-based security solutions for wireless networking, smart card authentication, VPNs, secure email, Web SSL, EFS, and code-signing applications using Windows Server PKI and certificate services. A principal PKI consultant to Microsoft, Brian shows you how to incorporate best practices, avoid common design and implementation mistakes, help minimize risk, and optimize security administration.


  • Nobody in the US seems to have it or be able to get it.  I got an "Eastern Economy Edition" which states on the cover

    "For sale in Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka only."

    It seems like a not well vetted rewrite of the 2003 book.  I'm very disappointed.

  • Nobody in the US? If you click on the link above you get to our website and there is a link to O'Reilly where you can order it (in the US I guess, have not tried here at home):


  • Is there a difference between the US and International version?  The only "US" copies I can find are going for $160.00 and up.  International versions are in the $20 - $50 range.
