In this episode of The Knowledge Chamber, I meet with Vittorio Bertocci (who just finished a new book, Programming Windows Identity Foundation)*to learn more about the basic features and capabilities of Windows Identity Foundation and see how easy it is for websites and applications to get out of the credential management game and “outsource” their authentication to another provider.
When used in conjunction with services such as the Windows Azure AppFabric Access Control Service, Windows Identity Foundation makes it possible to log in via LiveID, Yahoo, Google, and existing Active Directory instances equipped with ADFS2, as well as by using a variety of other providers, while maintaining the exact same codebase.
