Windows Azure ACS and Cloud Based Services RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Folks

    Not really sure I am clear on WA and ACS, but, as a hosting provider could we use this in conjunction with ADFS 2.0 to eliminate the requirement for our customers to have on premise ADFS implementations?

    Our aim is to allow for SSO. So customer logs into local corporate AD and these credentials are trusted by our hosted AD and hence customer gets access to our cloud services - Exchange, Lync, SharePoint etc etc. without authenitcation prompts.

    If so what else is required, or if there is a document out there that explains this nicely please post a link. The literature we have been reading to date is confusing to say the least.

  • I'm not sure what you mean by WA. Do you mean Windows Azure Active Directory? To use WA, your partner needs an Office 365 subscription. For more informaiton, please refer to https://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/develop/net/how-to-guides/web-sso/. To use ACS, as long as you want to use Active Directory authentication, your partner's ADFS is a must. Your partner need to establish a trust relationship between your ACS service and their ADFS.
