Secure Store service cmdlets (SharePoint Server 2010)


Applies to: SharePoint Server 2010, SharePoint Foundation 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-09-24

In Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, the Secure Store Service replaces the single sign-on (SSO) service that was used in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. The Secure Store Service is a claims-aware authentication service that includes a secure database for storing credentials that are associated with application IDs. These application IDs can be used to authorize access to external data sources. The Secure Store Service provides the capability of securely storing credentials and associating them to specific identities or a group of identities. A common scenario for Secure Store Service is an application trying to authenticate against a system in which the current user is known by a different name or has a different account for authentication. When used with Microsoft Business Connectivity Services, the Secure Store Service provides a means to authenticate against external data sources.

When you use Windows PowerShell cmdlets, you can create and configure a Secure Store Service instance, configure the settings of a credentials database, and configure all global settings of the Secure Store Service.
