Windows Server ADCS PKI Book Status – March 2015

Yes, it’s a popular topic and comes up almost every day! Brian and I are still working on the follow up to the MS Press released Windows Server 2008 PKI book. The plan was initially to target Windows Server 2012 R2 as the new OS release, but as we can all plainly see, that is now several years in the past. So during a recent conversation we agreed that we should target Windows vNext (let’s call it Windows Server 2016?) We will of course include reference and topics for Server 2012 R2, so don’t worry.

As for a release date, that I can’t provide any concrete specifics other than to stay tuned to this blog and I will provide updates as they are available.

          I am planning on bringing the development of a new book in house and is part of my expansion plan this year.

            Nothing yet, but we are going to be working on our own version of an all new book for release next year.

    Hi Mark, the book will be released on 2019?

    • Mark B. Cooper aka "The PKI Guy" on March 6, 2019 at 8:47 am

      Marcos, unfortunately it is not likely. I hope to find time to start anew and work on an entirely new book and approach.
