Starting today, customers using AWS Directory Service for Microsoft Active Directory (Enterprise Edition), also called Microsoft AD, now have the added permissions to install and use Microsoft Network Policy Server (NPS). The new permissions grant you the rights required to register NPS in the RAS and IAS Servers security group. Once NPS is installed and registered, you can use it to enforce network access policies for client health, network connection authentication, and network access authorization by using account information stored in Microsoft AD.
