Web Single Sign Out–Part II

  Following up on previous post, there were 2 questions: Where do these green checks images come from? There are nowhere in a-Order or in a-Expense… you would spend hours looking for the PNG, or JPG or GIF and you will never find it, because it is very well concealed. Can you guess where it…

Single Sign Out–WebSSO

While reviewing all the existing samples we’ve noticed that our implementation of Single Sign Out was kind of….weak.  It wasn’t really fully implemented and wasn’t very clear what was happening either (or what it should happen) We’ve fixed all that now in scenario 1: WebSSO.

In this post, I’ll show you more details on how this works, based on the sample…

Access Control Service as a Federation Provider

The first scenario we are working is using ACS as a federation provider. This is an extension of the current chapter on Federation. The basic scenario is the following: Adatum has an Order processing app (a-Order) that is already claims enabled. Adatum wants their partners to be able to access a-Order with their own identity…

Our next project – Claims based Identity and Access Control

Not surprisingly maybe, security in general, and authentication & authorization in particular, is a consistently highly rated concern for our customers. These concerns are especially elevated  with those considering the cloud, because they don’t have as much control on the cloud as they would typically have in their own datacenters. Sometimes, one could argue, for…
