This book is a complete reference to IIS7.0---both for developers and administrators. In addition to covering the common administrative tasks, this book will take an in depth look at IIS7.0 extensibility and operations management. This information will be pulled from people running major intranets and web hosting facilities. The book will differentiate itself from other IIS 7.0 books by showing how to: Automate administrative tasks. Monitor and manage an IIS environment, including MOF (Microsoft Operations Framework) and MOM (Microsoft Operations Manager). This information would be useful to systems administrators after they have deployed an IIS solution, by ensuring they are able to stabilize and monitor the environment. Debug and troubleshoot IIS. Few people (outside PSS and so forth) have the necessary information on available tools and how to use them effectively. Secure the IIS environment--including coverage of authentication protocols, PKI/SSL etc. Most books merely remark that a particular protocol is "secure" (or not secure) without detailing how these protocols work, what their strengths are, and how they can be subverted. Extend IIS7.0 through the use of ISAPI filters and HTTPModules. Master advanced topics (such as Network Load Balancing/High Availability) that are not covered by other books. Our author team has experience in large scale IIS hosting that few others do.
