Demystifying Identity and Authentication in SharePoint and ADFS

A session at SharePoint Saturday DC - June 2013

Saturday 8th June, 2013

10:30am to 11:45am (EST)

Since the introduction of claims-based authentication in SharePoint 2010 and it’s continuation in SharePoint 2013, authentication and user identity in SharePoint is a little more complex.

In my session I shall cover the basics of identity abstraction, how SharePoint 2010/2013 uses claims to uniquely identify users, and the architecture that provides authentication abstraction.

I shall also cover use of Active Directory Federated Services (ADFS) and specifically how ADFS provides Single-Sign-On in your organization for use with SharePoint and other claims-aware web services.

This session is aimed at an intermediate technical audience that understands basic security concepts in SharePoint, and wants to gain high-level knowledge in using claims-based-authentication and single-sign-on with ADFS.
