Join David Elfassy for an in-depth discussion in this video Implement single sign-on for applications, part of Learn Microsoft Azure: Active Directory.
- [Voiceover] Single sign-on is one of those functionalities…that significantly improves the experience of an end user…when accessing resources in multiple websites.…Accessing multiple applications from their computers…and accessing multiple resources across Active Directory,…specifically, as your Active Directory.…Now when we talk about single sign-on,…we talk about different kinds of single sign-on.…We can talk about single sign-on…when there is a hybrid co-existence environment…between on-premises, resources, and Azure.…
Also, when we talk about single sign-on,…we talk about a user accessing an application…and leveraging existing Active Directory credentials.…Either way, whenever we talk about single sign-on,…we talk about a user logging on once…and then the backend infrastructure…managing those credentials to access multiple resources.…Essentially linking those credentials to other credentials…and therefore providing a single access point…for the user to access a multiple sets of resources.…
So in this demonstration, we're going to look at…
Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) provides most of the rich functionalities of Active Directory, with the conveniences of cloud-based computing. Azure AD also offers developers a great way to integrate identity management into applications. In this Azure training course, David Elfassy introduces the terminology and feature set in Azure AD. He shows how to implement and manage user and group accounts, join client computers, and implement single sign-on and multifactor authentication. (Industry standard protocols such as SAML 2.0, WS-Federation, and OpenID Connect makes sign-on possible on a variety of platforms.) In the final chapters of the course, David reviews the more advanced reporting and features in Azure AD and Azure AD Connect, including syncing on-premise Active Directory and Azure AD.
