Microsoft Security Summit

| Comments

I went to the MS Security Summit last week in Chicago. It was really beneficial from a recruiting perspective ;) Some of the tracks were interesting, but also seemed like sales pitches for ISA, Exchange, and IIS Server. What can you expect from a MS Security Summit, though? MS has been getting very impressive lately with their technology. One thing that caught my attention was RPC over HTTP(S) for Exchange server. This feature lets you access your Outlook email over the web transparently - by that I mean you don’t have to use a Outlook Web Access or some other form of webmail. Nice feature, but the concept of RPC over HTTP scares me a little.
