How Microsoft SharePoint 2010 was Built with the Windows Identity Foundation
Explore how SharePoint 2010 has undergone a shift in identity and access control by adopting the claims-based object model offered by Windows Identity Foundation (WIF). Learn how SharePoint 2010 implements the extensibility points of WIF and achieves a standards based identity solution that is designed for heterogeneous identity environments for its on-premises and cloud-based offerings. Dive deeply into how SharePoint 2010 unifies sign-in process and service access control processes by using identity delegation capabilities offered by WIF. Also, see examples of enabling advanced scenarios such as resource access in cross-farm and cross-enterprise environments by externalizing the authentication to a security token service and performing claims-based authorization.
