Before you can plan for the implementation of your AppLocker policies, you need to understand how they work and are processed. AppLocker rules are controls that are applied to the types of files that are subject to AppLocker controls, which determine whether or not that file is allowed to run. AppLocker policies are sets of rules that are enforced on a computer via the Application Identity Service. The Application Identity Service is responsible for evaluating the policies. Remember that the service is required to be enabled and started in order to enforce AppLocker policies.
