Deploy ADFS in Windows Server 2012
You can use Active Directory® Federation Services (AD FS) with the Windows Server® 2012 operating system to build a federated identity management solution that extends distributed identification, authentication, and authorization services to Web-based applications across organization and platform boundaries. By deploying AD FS, you can extend your organization’s existing identity management capabilities to the Internet.
You can deploy AD FS to:
Provide your employees or customers with a Web-based, single-sign-on (SSO) experience when they need remote access to internally hosted Web sites or services.
Provide your employees or customers with a Web-based, SSO experience when they access cross-organizational Web sites or services from within the firewalls of your network.
Provide your employees or customers with seamless access to Web-based resources in any federation partner organization on the Internet without requiring employees or customers to log on more than once.
Retain complete control over your employee or customer identities without using other sign-on providers (Windows Live ID, Liberty Alliance, and others).
AD FS is the Microsoft® implementation of an identity federation framework that enables organizations to establish federation trusts and share resources across organizational and Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) boundaries. AD FS is compliant with common Web services standards, thus enabling interoperability with identity federation solutions provided by other vendors.
AD FS addresses a variety of business scenarios where the typical authentication mechanisms used in an organization do not work. This lesson provides an overview of the concepts and standards that are implemented in AD FS, and the business scenarios that AD FS can address.
