Confidental fields for AD RRS feed

  • Question

  • We need to store some confidential information in AD, what field could we use to store that so that no other application is pulling it? We tried to store it in a field we picked but it ends up being displayed in OWA.

    If an secured field is not an option, how could you hide a particular filed in OWA? (We are seeing it in OWA contact cards).

  • I wouldn't store any confidential information into active directory. If person know how to get AD information (most of the infra guys would know) via any tool like adsiedit.msc / adexplorer.exe then everyone in the domain has read-only access to everything stored in AD...

    However you could use any extensionAttribute (in Exchange term it is called CustomAttribute) there are around 15 available to use...
