Federation and Federated Identity: Part 2 Building Federated Identity Solutions with Forefront Unified Access Gateway and ADFS v2


About This Video

For years we have been striving towards Single-Sign-On (SSO) for our users when they access corporate resources. However, as organizations move applications to the Cloud and have requirements for their users to access applications that reside within partner organizations, secure SSO authentication and authorization presents major challenges. The solution to these challenges is Federated Identity and claims based applications. Come to this two part session and learn how to build Federated Identity solutions for the future. Part 1, introduces the challenges facing administrators and developers and show you how to implement Federation using Microsoft Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) v2. You will learn how to build SSO solutions allowing your users to access on-premise, Cloud and partner based applications. Part 2, delves deeper and looks at enhanced options for Federation including the user of Forefront Unified Access Gateway (UAG) SP1 and ADFS v2. Both part 1 and part 2 contain extensive demos which will accelerate your understanding of Federation and what it can bring to your organisation. Although we don’t delve into code, developers will gain invaluable knowledge on claims based identity. Federated identity is the Hot Topic for 2011. Make sure you are riding the wave.
