Internet Security and Acceleration Server 2004 Software Development Kit

The Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2004 Software Development Kit (SDK) includes documentation, tools, and samples to enable developers and system administrators to deploy, configure, customize, and extend their ISA Server 204 environment.

The ISA Server 2004 SDK allows you to extend ISA Server 2004 features such as firewall services, packet filtering, VPN support, advanced caching, monitoring, logging, and alerting, and automate their configuration. Components that can be created with the ISA Server 204 SDK may include application filters, Web filters, configuration scripts, and user interface extensions.

The ISA Server 2004 SDK enables developers to:

Automate tasks performed through the ISA Server 204 Management user interface using the administration COM objects. This capability allows administrators to create scripts to automate repetitive or complex tasks.

Develop Web filters as run-time extensions of the ISA Server 204 Web proxy, detecting and processing HTTP request notifications to monitor, evaluate, and intercept HTTP traffic. Web filters are similar in functionality to ISAPI filters that work with Internet Information Services (IIS).

Develop application filters as extensions of the Microsoft Firewall service. Use exposed COM interfaces to extend security and access control for the Firewall service.

Extend the ISA Server 204 Management MMC snap-in by creating a custom MMC snap-in for new application filters.

The SDK can be used with both ISA Server 2004 Standard Edition and ISA Server 2004 Enterprise Edition (specific limitations are documented)
