Identity Federation using Microsoft ADFS And Azure AD


  • Students must have basic knowledge of Azure and Active Directory.
  • A Free or Paid Azure Subscription for performing hands-On (Optional).

What is this course about?

When we want external parties to consume our applications (be it on-premises or cloud) then the federation comes into the picture. Federation allows external identities (from partner organizations or individual contractors) to access the published applications in another organization using their own organization’s user account or using their personal social media accounts.

This course primarily talks about the federation of identities using the old horse Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) and Azure Active Directory (Azure AD). In this course, students will gain a step by step understanding of implementing ADFS infrastructure in Azure IAAS and in later sections of the course they’ll get to know how Azure AD works as a federation broker.

Students will also learn how to register a custom domain in Azure AD and sync their On-Premises user objects to Azure AD using Azure AD Connect. This course will be explaining in detail how Azure B2B Collaboration and Azure B2C work.

Disclaimer: This course does not cover any web application coding to make the application claim aware. We have used ready-made sample applications for demonstration.


Who is the perfect Audience?
