Authentication and Authorization Infrastructure in Microsoft SharePoint 2013

Play Authentication and Authorization Infrastructure in Microsoft SharePoint 2013
Sign in to queue


Starting from SharePoint 2013, the default authentication model is Claims-based and the whole SharePoint infrastructure fully leverages claims and open protocols like WS-Federation and OAuth. In this session, you learn how authentication and authorization work in SharePoint 2013, either when handling direct users’ requests, or running requests for SharePoint apps. In particular, see how to federate with an external Identity Provider like Windows Azure ACS to authenticate users and then authorize them in SharePoint, leveraging claims.



The Discussion

    It would be interesting to see how SharePoint fits in the whole registration workflow. Login with a Facebook account via OAuth is cool. But how to control who's registering? How to get access - can you set a default group for first registration users? Auto-registration vs. manual control...

    We will talk a little about the topics you highlight. For instance, I'm planning to talk about custom Claims Providers, in order to manage custom claims and authorize external identities based on their claims. I hope to see you there!
