Sadly, this is way off target.  I meant it when I said it was a good
start - this is the first chapter, not the complete reference.

A trusted domain relationship exists to be used - I need to have a clear
overview of how authentication and other information flows between
trusted domains.  Is DRS synchronisation used?  How is it used and
between what trust types?  How does a domain know which other domain to
contact about an attempted login with a user principal name?  How are
the transitive trust relationships followed to allow access to a
resource in some far-away domain?  When a user (from a trusted domain)
is added to a security descriptor, how is that name resolved?  What
purpose does the global catalog take in trusted domain environments and
how is it consulted when dealing with inter-forest trusts?

These are just some of the questions I would expect an overview of
trusted domains to show (with links to the explicit details of calls,
but 200 pages of packet captures isn't a substitute for real detail).
