Checklist: Implementing a Domain Isolation Policy Design

Applies To: Windows Server 2012

This parent checklist includes cross-reference links to important concepts about the domain isolation policy design. It also contains links to subordinate checklists that will help you complete the tasks that are required to implement this design.

Note

Complete the tasks in this checklist in order. When a reference link takes you to a procedure, return to this topic after you complete the steps in that procedure so that you can proceed with the remaining tasks in this checklist. The procedures in this section use the Group Policy MMC snap-ins to configure the GPOs, but you can also use Windows PowerShell to configure GPOs. For more information, see Windows Firewall with Advanced Security Administration with Windows PowerShell at http://technet.microsoft.com/library/hh831755.aspx. For more information about the security algorithms and authentication methods available in each version of Windows, see IPsec Algorithms and Methods Supported in Windows at http://technet.microsoft.com/library/dd125380.aspx.
