Kent Nordström

My name is Kent Nordström and I work as a consultant specializing in Identity Management and Security. I wrote my first lines of code in the late 70′s and from there it just continued…

In 2012 I released my first book. The Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager 2010 R2 Handbook.

At this web site I will give you my view on things related to Identity Management and Security. If your looking for information on Microsoft products you will find my comments on…

  • Identity Management products like FIM (ForeFront Identity Manager), ILM (Identity Lifecycle Management) and ADFS (Active Directory Federation Services)
  • PKI products like AD CS (Active Directory Certificate Services)
  • ForeFront Edge products like TMG (Threat Management Gateway) and UAG (Unified Access Gateway).



Since 2001 I run a consultant company called XP Services together with my partner Marcus Olsson. Both me and Marcus are MCT’s (Microsoft Certified Trainers) and consider ourselves being pedagogical consultants, making sure customers understand what we have done for them. For many years now I have been a member of Microsoft Extended Expert Team, this close relationship with Microsoft as well as my work as subcontractor to Microsoft Consultant Services has given me many “nice-to-have” shortcuts into the core of Microsoft.
