Introduction

The Understand Web Services module provides you with the instruction and server hardware to develop your hands on skills in the defined topics. This module includes the following exercises:

  • Installing Web Services
  • Configuring FTP
  • Generating a Request for an Internet Server Certificate
  • Installing and Binding an SSL Certificate to a Website

Exercise 1 - Installing Web Services

In this exercise, you will learn the following using Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2:

  • Installing the Web Server role
  • Generating a request for an Internet Server certificate
  • Installing and binding the SSL certificate to a website

Exercise 2 - Configuring FTP

File Transfer Protocol (FTP) simple is a protocol for transferring files between computer systems. IIS 7.5 includes an FTP server that is easy to configure.

Exercise 3 - Generating a Request for an Internet Server Certificate

If you want to prove the identity of your Website to the users who access your Web Server, you must have an associated certificate. These certificates are issued by the Certificate Authority (CA) either a third party commercial CA or an internal service as provided by Active Directory Certificate Services.

Secure Sockets Layer or SSL is enforced, when a server certificate is associated with a service such as HTTP or FTP. In addition network transmission between the web or ftp server is protected because of the encryption provided by the certificates.

Exercise 4 - Installing and Binding an SSL Certificate to a Website

After you receive the SSL certificate from the Certificate Authority, you must install the certificate and bind it to the website for which you generated the certificate.
