Rights Management Service

Rights Management Services (RMS)
Rights Management Services (RMS) is server software for information rights management by Windows Server. It uses encryption and a form of selective functionality for limiting access to documents (such as corporate e-mails and web pages) so the only one can perform on them is authorized users.

Rights Management Service or Active Directory Rights Management Services?

Rights Management Service is known as Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS), or RMS. AD RMS helps organizations to protect sensitive information to reach out. Also allows organizations to work with security technologies and manage the rights of an organization’s intellectual property.

Sensitive information in a rights management service environment needs to be protected so it doesn’t reach the wrong hands. Each company is supposed to do everything in its power to avoid this type of situation. Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS) or Rights Management Service, is a server role in  Windows Active Directory, which intends to help organizations with that.

What is Rights Management Service?

RMS has its way of tools to help organizations work with security technologies and manage the rights on an organization’s intellectual property ( included email messages, Microsoft Office documents, project information, contacts, etc.). What makes rights management services different from other server is that RMS has usage policies that follow the reports everywhere they are moved to. The rights management service also specifies a period during which users can perform actions such as modify, forward or print. Users can also exercise control over the documents. Depends on the organization’s need, the RMS usage policy templates can be customized. Rights Management Service features are fully united into the Microsoft Office Suite.

What does Rights Management Service do?

It is known as Active Directory Rights Management Services or RMS.  RMS encrypt the information that needs to be protected and stored in the RMS server. In order to read and access the encrypted file, the user needs to be authorized to the encrypt key to decrypt this information. If a user is eligible to obtain the data, he/she will automatically be ready to recover the key from the server to open the file. The user would also need to contact the rights management service server to retrieve the key even if the RMS-protected is taken offsite.

RMS implements four options for the transfer of RMS-protected documents between organizations. One way is to use a single rights management service infrastructure and design external accounts for the partner in AD infrastructure.  Another way is to create an RMS infrastructure at the partner’s site. Or Leverage Windows Live ID credentials for authenticating external users. The last one is to use identity organization by leveraging Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) or the Microsoft Federation Gateway.
