Identity and Windows Azure
With the advent of Azure Active Directory (AAD), the normal on-premise Identity management paradigm has been extended into the cloud and provides support for Windows Azure, Microsoft Office 365, Dynamics CRM Online, Windows Intune etc.
It allows integration with an on-premise AD and synching of AD with AAD. AAD is built on the Graph API which facilitates accessing objects such as Users, Groups, and Roles. It also provides SSO with the above plus applications built on Windows Azure using popular web identity providers like Microsoft Account, Google, Yahoo!, and Facebook by means of Azure ACS.
The Active Directory Authentication Library (ADAL) for .NET enables client application developers to easily authenticate users to Windows Azure Active Directory
"Identity and Windows Azure" will give an overview on these technologies with examples and resources. The presentation will cover how these technologies integrate and will cover what tools and utilities are available.
Rory has presented to the .NET user group on "Claims Based Identity" which gave an overview of ADFS and WIF.
