SharePoint Security Webinar

Audience Administrators
Duration 3 Hours

Given the amount of sensitive information that can be contained within a SharePoint Farm, proper authentication of users is a critically important concern.   Most SharePoint implementations use Active Directory for authentication, but did you know that SharePoint can interact with a whole array of authentication frameworks?

In this webinar we will look at these core authentication and authorization mechanisms and how to configure them for use in your SharePoint Environment. We will introduce the idea of claims authentication and how this fundamentally changes the authentication and authorization components of SharePoint.

We will use Active Directory for general access along with Active Directory Federated Services to authenticate and authorize users from that are external to your organization. Utilizing Windows Azure Services, we will also look at how to federate with existing identity providers and allow users from any platform to seamlessly authenticate to SharePoint.
