Checklist Checklist: Implementing a Web SSO Design


  Task Reference

Review important concepts and examples for the Web SSO design and determine which Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) deployment goals you can use to customize this design to meet the needs of your organization.

The Web SSO design does not require that you set up partners in the Federation Service.

Conceptual topic Web SSO design

Conceptual topic Web SSO example

Conceptual topic Identifying Your ADFS Deployment Goals


Review the hardware, software, certificate, Domain Name System (DNS), account store, and client requirements for deploying ADFS in your organization.

Conceptual topic Appendix A: Reviewing ADFS Requirements


According to your design plan, install one or more federation servers in the corporate network or in the perimeter network.

The Web SSO design requires only one federation server to function successfully. A single federation server acts in both the account partner role and the resource partner role.

Checklist topic Checklist: Installing a federation server


(Optional) Determine whether or not your organization needs a federation server proxy in the perimeter network.

Checklist topic Checklist: Installing a federation server proxy


Install one or more ADFS-enabled Web servers to host your preferred federated application using the appropriate ADFS Web Agent.

The Web SSO design requires at least one ADFS-enabled Web server.

Checklist topic Checklist: Installing an ADFS-enabled Web server


Depending on your Web SSO design plan and how you intend to use it, install either an Active Directory account store or an Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM) account store in the Federation Service.

Checklist topic Checklist: Configuring the account partner organization


For SSO, incoming claims must be associated with organization group claims or custom claims that reside in the Federation Service.

Procedure topic Create an organization group or custom claim


If you are an administrator in the resource partner organization, install either a claims-aware application or a Windows NT token-based application, or both, using the appropriate checklist.

The account partner administrator does not have to complete either of the following checklists.

Checklist topic Checklist: Installing a claims-aware application

Checklist topic Checklist: Installing a Windows NT token-based application
