This video serves as a quick overview of authentication and then review what we mean by identity.
- [Instructor] Let's take a quick look at authentication and then review what we mean by identity and the various models available to us. To grant access to your resources, such as your money, you first need to perform some authentication with your bank to establish identity. This could be your pin number, which you use at an ATM, together with a corresponding banker's card. The most common form of authentication is to use a username and a password, such as when logging onto a computer or website.
Best practice requires that the password be complex to prevent it from being easily compromised or guessed. As we continue to move from an on-premises authentication using Active Directory and domains, to a Cloud-based identity model, there will multiple models to choose from. You need to choose the most appropriate model. For example, a startup won't have an on-premises identity model. Whereas a large organization may have hundreds of servers managing Active Directory and policing identity.
The model that you choose will determine how you will manage your user accounts. So, if you only use Office 365, you will use online sign in services. Ultimately, we're establishing how user passwords are verified and where they are managed. There are transitional services that allow us to embrace a hybrid model, such as with on-premises AD servers and sinking user details up to Office 365.
