"Rip and Replace" certificate services from Windows Server 2003 to 2008

September 29th, 2008 Comments off

Is it possible to migrate a Windows Server 2003 based Certification Authority to Windows Server 2008?

The answer is yes but you need all detailes in the Active Directory Certificate Services Upgrade and Migration Guide from Microsoft found at

The short answer would be that you need to performe the following steps:

  1. Backup your existing CA using the certutil -backup command
  2. Install the new Windows Server 2008 CA with the same name as the replaced server
  3. Add the ADCS role and import the CA-certificate from the backup
  4. Upgrade the templates to WS2008
  5. Restore the old CA database using the certutil -restore  command

September 22nd, 2008 Comments off

Man har åter igen lyckats hamna med i Computer Sweden:s lista över landets 75 vassaste IT-säkerhetsexperter, mycket smikrande och roligt att få den bekräftelsen på det man gör samtidigt som det är en utmaning att bli ännu bättre till nästa år.

Det som är extra roligt i år att det är tre personer från TrueSec samt Predde från LabCenter som är med i listan 🙂



Vi ses pÄ Tech-Ed EMEA 2008

September 21st, 2008 Comments off

Jag kommer att köra två sessioner på årets Tech-Ed EMEA. sessionerna kommer att handla om säkerhet i WLAN samt Server & Domain Isolation och hur man rent praktiskt bygger enligt konceptet.

Myths and facts of WLAN security

It's actually quite easy to secure
wireless networks, manually configuring MAC addresses or disabling SSID
broadcasting is not a substitute for an appropriate encryption
standard. Based on our real life experiences we will guide you through
some simple steps to secure your WLAN infrastructure building a secure, easy to manage and working wireless networking using components already built into
your Windows Servers and clients.

Server and Domain Isolation = a dynamic secure network

A demo based on a customer case
setting up the next generation secure network. Enabling the users to
dynamically connect and gain access to resources, based on a
combination of user and computer security configuration regardless of
their physical location, using the Windows Firewall with Advanced
Security and Network Access Protection components built into Windows
Server 2008 and Windows Vista.
