Active Directory Rights Management Services SDK 2.1 platform enables developers to build applications that leverage Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS) information protection. It handles complex security practices such as key management, encryption and decryption processing and offers a simplified API for easy application development. For developers who want to add AD RMS support to their new and existing applications, the AD RMS SDK 2.0 helps make it easier to: • Author manageable, compliant and robust RMS-aware applications. • Encrypt user data persistently. The data remains encrypted regardless of the environment, device, or operating system. • Enforce a rich set of usage restrictions, such as preventing screen captures of your sensitive data. • Support enterprise-managed protection policies. • Support new authentication mechanisms and encryption algorithms as they become available.
