Extending Authentication and Authorization

In the two latest versions of SharePoint, we have seen how Claims-based authentication have taken over the traditional Windows and FBA authentication. Now we have federated identity with services such as Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) and Azure Active Directory (AAD) and the authorization is handled by OAuth in the app model. But still, the vast majority of the deployments still use plain vanilla AD or LDAP authentication, without exploiting its flexibility and adaptability to a variety of scenarios. In this session you will learn how to extend the authentication and authorization with custom claim providers, claim augmentation and transformation.

In this session you will:
– Acquaint yourself with the authorization/authentication mechanism in SharePoint/Office 365
– Learn how to extend and adapt the authentication/authorization to fit your needs 
– Get to know the benefits of using ADFS for identity federation
