Active Directory Audit Program
Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need a different audit program for Active Directory?
Windows and Active Directory are 2 very different animals. Windows is an
operating systems. Active Directory is a complex LDAP directory implementation,
identify management and centralized authentication technology as well as a major
systems management infrastructure technology for Windows computers. Therefore
separate but related audit programs are required. Our Member Server and Active
Directory audit programs integrate and inform each other.
What about domain controllers?
Domain controllers are the Windows Servers that host and run Active Directory.
Ergo: An Active Directory server is a Domain Controller and a Domain Controller
is an Active Directory server. The only exception to this rule is
Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM) which is a
scaled down version of AD. Active Directory is only as secure as the Windows
server upon which it runs. The Audit Program for Active Directory and Domain
Controllers includes evidence collection and controls testing that specifically
address domain controllers.
