The Windows Identity Foundation (WIF) makes it easy for web applications and services to use the modern, claims-based model of identity. This model allows you to factor authentication and many authorization decisions out of your applications and into a central
identity service. This model makes it much easier to achieve Internet-friendly single sign on. It also makes it easier for your application to receive richer identity information, and paves the way for identity federation, should you ever need to integrate
with another organization or another platform (Java, for example).
