Security and Permissions

Protecting your Exchange organization means maintaining a firewall, keeping your organization free of viruses, and using other system-wide security measures to guard your resources against the Internet. Permissions involve controlling access to sensitive resources inside an intranet. Key Management Service is an Exchange Advanced Security tool that protects data integrity through message encryption and digital signatures. KMS is an optional component of Exchange 2000 that works in conjunction with Windows 2000 Server Certificate Services to provide a centralized public key infrastructure (PKI).

You may experience specific problems when attempting to create the necessary security and permissions; for example, you may need to control access to sensitive resources and information inside an intranet.
