Mapping Your Deployment Goals to an ADFS Design

Updated: December 15, 2006

Applies To: Windows Server 2003 R2

After you finish reviewing the existing Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) deployment goals and you determine which goals are related to your specific deployment, you can map those goals to a specific ADFS design. For more information about ADFS predefined deployment goals, see Identifying Your ADFS Deployment Goals.

Use the following table to determine which ADFS design maps to the appropriate combination of ADFS deployment goals for your organization. This table refers only to the three primary ADFS designs as described in this guide. However, you can create a hybrid or custom ADFS design by using any combination of the ADFS deployment goals to meet the needs of your organization.
