Episode 33 - Azure Authentication

by Sujit D'Mello June 18, 2014

 Summary:  As the cloud services offering in Azure have continued to evolve, so to have the options for authentication to leverage these services.  There is quite a matrix of options possible with our current tooling, and even more in the third party side: 


  • Windows Azure Active Directory - What is it?  How is it different from Windows Server Active Directory?
  • ADFS - What is it?  How can it be leveraged?  What problems does it solve?  When is it appropriate for use?
  • DirSync - What is it?  When should it be used?  What problems does it solve?
  • MultiFactor Authentication - When is this needed?  How can I enable in o365 and/or Azure
