Hello S-1-1-0! Recently I was extremely busy on various stuff including PS PKI Module writing, as the result I hadn’t enough much time to write here. Today I would like to announce a new Manning book called PowerShell Deep Dives. the project started last year and by bringing PowerShell MVP community, the stuff went quite quickly.

Why I’m advertising this book?

  1. The book is believed to be very interesting to all sort of IT Pro and Devs who is interesting in PowerShell. The book is divided in four general sections: Administration, Scripting, Development, PS for Platforms. Everyone of you will find something interesting for yourself.
  2. All chapters in the book are written by PowerShell MVPs = quality guaranteed!
  3. No one from writers or book coordinators will get a cent from book sales. All revenue will go to charity: to the memory of Will Steele, one of our co-authors and important member of the PowerShell community.

As you may note, I’m presenting my chapter as well and it is (of course) related to PKI management: Managing and administering Certification Authority database with Windows PowerShell. In this chapter I will give a deep dive in CA database management tasks, including access, query, filtering and external tasks, like certificate revocation and database cleanup. Due to the fact that the topic is a bit complex, I tried to explain topic-specific things, so it is just enough to know PKI fundamentals to understand the topic.

This book is a notable challenge for me and it is the first serious experience in writing (excluding blogging), so you can send me any comments and thoughts about my chapter directly.

Unfortunately there are no too much options, since I will have only one (personal) copy of the book. If you wish, you can send me the book for signing and I will send you back. It is a bit expensive process. On the other hand I used it to get a signed book by Brian Komar (Windows Server 2008 PKI and Certificate Security): http://www.sysadmins.lv/content/binary/Windows-Live-Writer/a418b419be24_104FC/WP_000212_2.jpg
