  • Slide Title: DirectAccess Technical DetailsKeywords: DirectAccess, Remote Connection, Key Message: Slide Builds: 3Slide Script: DirectAccess overcomes the limitations of VPNs by automatically establishing a bi-directional connection from client computers to the corporate network. DirectAccess is built on a foundation of proven, standards-based technologies. Let’s walk through this scenario:Here, the DirectAccess client computer is outside the corporate network and attempts to connect to an intranet Web site that an administrator specified during DirectAccess configuration. If the Web site is available, the DirectAccess client determines that it is already connected to the intranet, and the DirectAccess connection process stops. If the Web site is not available, the DirectAccess client determines that it is connected to the Internet and the DirectAccess connection process continues.The DirectAccess client computer connects to the DirectAccess server using IPv6 and IPsec. If a native IPv6 network isn’t available (and it probably won’t be when the user is connected to the Internet), the client establishes an IPv6-over-IPv4 tunnel. As part of establishing the IPsec session, the DirectAccess client and server authenticate each other using computer certificates for authentication. This enables IT to manage the computer before the user logs on. Optionally, you can require a smart card for user authentication. DirectAccess also uses IPsec to provide encryption for communications across the Internet.
  • [BUILD1] By validating Active Directory group memberships, the DirectAccess server verifies that the computer and user are authorized to connect using DirectAccess. [BUILD2] Once the connection process is complete, the DirectAccess server begins forwarding traffic from the DirectAccess client to the intranet resources to which the user has been granted access. DirectAccess provides end-to-end connectivity and projection to IPv6 and IPSec enabled computers by establishing an IPsec session through the DirectAccess server to each application server to which they connect. This provides the highest level of security because you can configure access control on the DirectAccess server. However, this architecture requires that application servers run Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2 and use both IPv6 and IPsec. [BUILD3] DirectAccess requires you configure your intranet routing infrastructure to support native IPv6, which many routers and network devices currently support. For connecting to IPv4-only devices and networks, DirectAccess provides a straightforward way to begin IPv6 deployment without requiring an infrastructure upgrade. You can use the 6to4 and Teredo IPv6 transition technologies for connectivity across the IPv4 Internet and the ISATAP IPv6 transition technology so that DirectAccess clients can access IPv6-capable resources across your IPv4-only intranet. Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, and later operating systems supports ISATAP and enable these computers to start using IPv6 without requiring native IPv6 routing. Slide Transition: Now let’s look at DirectAccess in action.Slide Comment: To Send feedback on this slide, use the hyperlink on the feedback slide at the start and end of this deck.Additional Information: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/thankyou.aspx?familyId=64966e88-1377-4d1a-be86-ab77014495f4&displayLang=en
  • Slide Title: How BranchCache WorksKeywords: BranchCache,Branch,Networking,Remote OfficeKey Message: BranchCache has two modes, Distributed Cache mode and Hosted Cache mode.Slide Builds: 7Slide Script: In this example, there is one central office, and there are two branch offices. The main office is using Windows Server 2008 R2 file and Web servers with BranchCache enabled. Each of the two branch offices has Windows 7 clients with BranchCache enabled. BranchCache has two operating modes, Distributed Cache mode and Hosted Cache mode. At the branch office on the left, the client computers are configured to use Distributed Cache mode. Distributed Cache mode is an option for smaller branches without a local file server that can be used as a Hosted Cache server. That means that he cached content is distributed among client computers on the branch office network. No infrastructure (servers, and so on) or services are required in the branch office beyond client computers running Windows 7. This is how it works:[BUILD1] A Windows 7 client connects to the content server and requests a file (or part of a file), exactly as it would if it were to retrieve the file without using BranchCache. The content in the central office server authenticates and authorizes the client, and the server returns an identifier that the client uses to search for the file on the local network. Because this is the first time any client has attempted to retrieve the file, it is not already cached on the local network. Therefore, the client retrieves the file directly from the content server and caches it.
  • [BUILD2] A second Windows 7 client requests the same file from the content server. The content server authenticates and authorizes the user in exactly the same manner it would if BranchCache were not being used. If successful, it returns content metadata over the same channel that data would normally have been sent. The metadata is the mechanism for reducing bandwidth, because the content metadata is significantly smaller than the actual content. It is important that the content server sends the content metadata to each client to ensure that the client always receives hashes for the most up-to-date content: This ensures that the most current data is always being accessed. The content is broken into blocks. For each block, a hash is computed (known as the “block hash”). A hash is also computed on a collection of blocks (known as the “segment hash”). Content metadata is primarily composed of block hashes and segment hashes. The hash algorithm that is used is SHA 256. The compression ratio achieved is approximately 2000:1; that is, the size of the metadata sent over the wire is ~2000 times smaller than the size of the original data itself. [BUILD3] The second client sends a request on the local network for the required file by using the Web Services Discovery (WS-Discovery) multicast protocol. The segment hashes provide a unit of discovery. This helps reduce the total number of lookups performed for a given content (compared to looking up every block). The client that previously cached the file sends the file to the requesting client. The data is encrypted by using a key that is derived from the hashes sent by the content server as part of the content metadata. The client decrypts the data, computes the hashes on the blocks received from the first client, and ensures that it is identical to the block hashes provided as part of the content metadata by the content server. This ensures that the content has not been modified.When a client needs to retrieve data from another client (or, as we’ll discuss in a moment, the Hosted Cache server), it downloads the content in units of blocks to ensure that the data can quickly return to the application. The minimum size of content that BranchCache caches is 64 KB. When content is less than 64 KB, data is directly retrieved from the content server by using the WAN.
  • Note that the Distributed Cache mode works across a single subnet only. This differs from Hosted Cache mode, which works across multiple subnets. Also note that clients that hibernate or otherwise disconnect from the network are not able to provide content to requesting clients. At the branch office on the right of the slide, the clients are configured in Hosted Cache mode. This is recommended if there are more than 50 clients at the branch. The cached content is maintained on a computer running Windows Server 2008 R2 on the branch office network. Hosted Cache configuration works this way:[BUILD4] The Windows 7 client connects to the content server in the central office and requests a file (or part of a file) exactly as it would if it were to retrieve the file without using BranchCache. The content server authenticates and authorizes the client exactly as it would without using BranchCache. If successful, it returns content metadata over the same channel that data would normally have been sent. In Hosted Cache mode, the client uses the hashes in the metadata to search for the file in the Hosted Cache server. Because this is the first time any client has retrieved the file, it is not already cached on the local network. Therefore, the client retrieves the file directly from the content server. [BUILD5] Now—and this is a key difference in Hosted Cache mode—the client establishes an SSL connection with the Hosted Cache server, and it offers the content identifiers over this encrypted channel. The Hosted Cache server connects to the client and retrieves the set of blocks that it does not have cached. [BUILD6] Now a second Windows 7 client requests the same file from the content server. Again, the content server authorizes the user and returns content identifiers.
  • [BUILD7] The client uses these identifiers to request the data from the Hosted Cache server. The Hosted Cache server encrypts the data and returns it to the client. (The data is encrypted by using a key that is derived from the hashes sent by the content server as part of the content metadata.) The client decrypts the data, computes the hashes on the blocks received from the Hosted Cache, and ensures that it is identical to the block hashes that the content server provided as part of the content metadata. This ensures that the content has not been modified.

  • Slide Title: BranchCache BenefitsKeywords: BranchCache,Benefits,Networking,Remote OfficeKey Message: BranchCache makes remote network tasks faster and more responsive increasing user productivity and more securely optimizes network utilization .Slide Builds: 1Slide Script: BranchCache improves user productivity and reduces WAN link utilization in branch offices while supporting your existing security requirements.For branch-office users, BranchCache improves application responsiveness, reduces file transfer wait time, and, combined with other SMB offerings, enhances user experience on remote shares.[BUILD1] For IT professionals, BranchCache reduces WAN bandwidth consumed by end users for intranet-based HTTP and server message block, or SMB, traffic. It accelerates delivery of encrypted content using HTTPS and IPsec and requires content servers to authenticate all users before granting access to cached content. BranchCache doesn’t require additional equipment in the branch offices, and it can be easily managed using Group Policy.Slide Transition: Before we see a demonstration, let’s look at how our demonstration environment is configured for this session.Slide Comment: To Send feedback on this slide, use the hyperlink on the feedback slide at the start and end of this deck.Additional Information: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/network/dd425028.aspx
