Authentication and Authorization Hello. This is John O'Neill, Sr. and today, we are going to be taking a look at Authentication and Authorization and how it applies to Windows 8. Authentication is verifying that you are who you say you are, and authorization is giving you access to something that you should have access to and denying you access to anything you shouldn't have access to. Well, without any further ado, let's get into it.
Windows Firewall Hello there. This is John O'Neill, Sr. , and in this lesson, we are going to take a look at the Windows Firewall and how you can use it to protect Windows 8 PCs. Well, let's get to it. Let's talk about Windows 8 network types for a moment. Network types are very important in Windows 8, just as they were in Windows 7. There are three network types that you have the possibility of setting on a Windows 8 PC. They are--public, which is for public networks, such as that at the local library or coffee shop; private, which is what is used in a home network for workgroup networks or even workgroup networks that have homegroups configured; and finally, domain, which is the network type used when your PC is a member of an active directory domain, such as that at Globomantics. Well, where do you find the network type that the PC is configured to?
Exchange ActiveSync Hi. This is John O'Neill, Sr. from TrainSignal, and in this lesson, we are going to continue our look at mobility in Windows 8. We're going to hone in and focus on Exchange ActiveSync. You may be asking yourself, Wait a minute. That's an exchange topic, not a Windows 8 topic. Well, you're kind of right and you're kind of wrong. Exchange ActiveSync is a critical component used by many, many, many Windows 8 devices, so I think it's very important that we cover it in some detail and let you get a good idea of how it interacts with those Windows 8 devices. Well, it's time to quit talking and start doing, so let's get into that lesson.
