A great part of network administration involves management of users, computers, and groups. A successful operating system must ensure that only properly authenticated users and computers can logon to the network and that each network resource is available only to authorized users. In the Microsoft® Windows® 2008 operating system, the Active Directory™ service plays several major roles in providing security. Among these roles are the efficient and effective management of user logon authentication and user authorization.

Delegation of control is the ability to assign the responsibility of managing Active Directory objects to another user, group, or organization. By delegating control, the need for multiple administrative accounts that have broad authority can be eliminated. Delegated administration in Active Directory helps ease the administrative burden of managing a network by distributing routine administrative tasks to multiple users.
