Active Directory Security Module

Windows PowerShell is a scripting language used to automate system tasks. Tracking PowerShell events gives system administrators insights about critical activities like data gathering, dumping credentials, etc.

The following is a comparison between working with security scripts on Windows PowerShell and the tracking of PowerShell activity by ADAudit Plus:

Windows PowerShell

Windows PowerShell cmdlets simplify tasks that earlier required lengthy codes involving ADSI.

Examples of a few cmdlets:

  • Get-Acl
    This cmdlet gets the security descriptor, which in turn contains the access control list, of a file or resource.
  • Set-Acl
    This cmdlet changes the security descriptor of a specified file, to match the values in a security descriptor that you provide.
  • Get-PfxCertificate
    This cmdlet gets an object representing each specified .pfx certificate file. A .pfx file includes the certificate and a private key.
  • Get-Credential
    This cmdlet creates a credential object for a specified user name and password which can be used in security operations.
  • New-FileCatalog
    This cmdlet creates a catalog of file hashes that can be used to validate the authencity of a file.
