I've got a forest called forest_a. All my users and servers and workstations
are in here.

I'm planning on creating a forest_b. In here will sit my web servers.

I will then set a trust so forest_b trusts forest_a which will allow admins
to admin the new forest.
I will then set only certain accounts via selective authentication that can
run as a service.

For example:
Web server sits on forest_b (Used to sit on forest_a)
SQL server sits on forest_a
Previously i had a service account that the website would run under to query
the sql server.
I plan on doing the same. I'm guessing the service account from forest_a
will work in forest_b with my trust in place?

Is this good security?

(The thinking being is someone hacked my web server and got domain admin
they would not be able to do anyhting to my internal network/doman). Is this

Should i consider ADAM (or ADFS) in any part of this? How would this

What is the best setup? This is Win2003.

Thank you.
