Enrique Saggese, a Microsoft Senior Consultant, recently gave a lecture where he explained, from a high level, how AD RMS functions and how it protects content. We have edited that lecture into a series of videos that we are in the process of releasing on TechNet Edge.

 So far, we've released the following short video clips:

  1. How it works: Active Directory Rights Management Services - an introductory overview of how AD RMS protects content
  2. AD RMS Certificates and Licensing on the Client and the Server - a discussion about certificates
  3. AD RMS Certificate Hierarchy and the Protection Process - more about certificates and licenses
