The Demystified Series is pleased to present a collection of screencasts on Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS). Keith Brown, a contributing editor for MSDN Magazine and co-founder of PluralSight, hosts the first two segments.
In this “AD FS (Part 1)” session, Keith highlights the fact that many times user account stores abound in enterprises because applications do not share users. This causes a myriad of issues concerning user account management, driving up help desk costs and demanding that users remember many accounts and passwords. AD FS provides a way to move away from this model, leverage either an Active Directory or Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services account store, get Web single signon (SSO) across multiple applications and have your applications architected for federation access as well! In this session Keith introduces the AD FS concepts by taking the ASP.NET TimeTracker sample application and converting it into a claims-based AD FS enabled application.
