Set-ADSyncRestrictedPermissions

SYNOPSIS

Tighten permissions on an AD object that is not otherwise included in any AD protected security group. A typical example is the AD Connect account (MSOL) created by AAD Connect automatically. This account has replicate permissions on all domains, however can be easily compromised as it is not protected.

SYNTAX

Set-ADSyncRestrictedPermissions [-ADConnectorAccountDN] <String> [-Credential] <PSCredential>
 [-DisableCredentialValidation] [-WhatIf] [-Confirm] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Set-ADSyncRestrictedPermissions Function will tighten permissions oo the account provided. Tightening permissions involves the following steps: 1. Disable inheritance on the specified object 2. Remove all ACEs on the specific object, except ACEs specific to SELF. We want to keep the default permissions intact when it comes to SELF. 3. Assign these specific permissions:

    Type	Name										Access				Applies To
    =============================================================================================
    Allow	SYSTEM										Full Control		This object
    Allow	Enterprise Admins							Full Control		This object
    Allow	Domain Admins								Full Control		This object
    Allow	Administrators								Full Control		This object

    Allow	Enterprise Domain Controllers				List Contents
                                                        Read All Properties
                                                        Read Permissions	This object

    Allow	Authenticated Users							List Contents
                                                        Read All Properties
                                                        Read Permissions	This object

EXAMPLES

EXAMPLE 1

Set-ADSyncRestrictedPermissions -ADConnectorAccountDN "CN=TestAccount1,CN=Users,DC=Contoso,DC=com" -Credential $(Get-Credential)

Type: String
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases:

Required: True
Position: 1
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Credential

Administrator credential that has the necessary privileges to restrict the permissions on the ADConnectorAccountDN account. This is typically the Enterprise or Domain administrator. Use the fully qualified domain name of the administrator account to avoid account lookup failures. Example: CONTOSO\admin

Type: PSCredential
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases:

Required: True
Position: 2
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
