JEA—A PowerShell Toolkit to Secure a Post-Snowden World
Jeffrey P. Snover, Microsoft
When asked what to do about corporate hacking, Ex-NSA Director Michael Hayden replied, "Man up and defend yourselves." Within a few years, Edward Snowden rocked the world by disclosing information he had gathered using his NSA administrative privileges. JEA stands for Just Enough Admin. It is a PowerShell DSC toolkit that you can use to "man up and defend yourselves" by allowing admins to perform functions without giving them admin privileges across a large set of systems.
