This is a recording from an MSDN Live Meeting broadcast from the Microsoft Belgium office on November 14, 2011. 

In this session you will learn how MyGet leverages the Windows Azure Access Control Service to outsource its authentication and authorization work, resulting in a flexible yet elegant solution to accommodate one of its basic needs: allowing users to login and consult their data. MyGet consists of (at least) three applications and supports logging in via Windows Live ID, Google, Facebook, OpenID and Active Directory. Not to mention additional applications will be plugged in to this architecture in the future... That basic need gets complicated quickly! Are you willing to know how we keep control of this authentication spaghetti? Do you want to know about the endless possibilities of the Access Control Service? Want to see the ACS service is basically a service bus for authentication and authorization needs? If your answer to any of these questions is yes, this session is tailor made for you.
