The Identity Challenge for Developers
In this session we take a look at the new world of claims-based identities, where we simply cannot rely on Kerberos anymore to provide the identity of the end-user of our applications. We will see how to develop claims-aware applications using Windows Azure Access Control Service (ACS) and Windows Azure Active Directory (WAAD), as well as social identity providers (Facebook, Microsoft, Google, ...). But let's definitely not forget how we can leverage our on-premise Active Directory information through Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS)! You will leave this session with a better understanding of claims-based identity, federation protocols (WS-Federation, WS-Trust, SAML, OAuth2, OpenID Connect) and the various token formats they use (SAML, SWT, JWT).
