Active Directory has been thoroughly transformed to reflect the industry's breakneck shift to the cloud, modern authentication/authorization protocols such as OAuth2 and OpenId Connect, and new today's new mobile, SaaS, and single-page application paradigms. Now, there's an authoritative, start-to-finish guide to building Active Directory authentication solutions for these radically new environments. Author Vittorio Bertocci is the Microsoft Program Manager responsible for implementing these new technologies. Bertocci drove them from initial concept to general availability, played a key role in their technical design, and wrote many of their samples and much of their documentation. Nobody is more qualified to write this book. In Modern Authentication with Active Directory, he delivers comprehensive guidance for building complete solutions. Balancing theory with concrete code-level guidance, he paints a complete picture -- placing individual tasks in context, explaining how disparate tasks fit together, helping you choose and design your solution, and demonstrating how to implement it reliably, safely, and efficiently. Step by step, you'll gain deep mastery of Active Directory Authentication Library (ADAL) for Windows Store, Windows Phone, .NET, and JavaScript single-page app development; ASP.NET OWIN security components for Web API and OpenId Connect, and much more. You'll also gain deep insight into today's new authentication protocols, eliminating the need to read and interpret abstruse specifications documents. Drawing on his deep technical expertise, Bertocci shows how to go far beyond the basic SDK samples, smoothly handling advanced scenarios and "edge cases." For each major app type, he: Presents a typical high-level scenario Offers quick guidance on how to implement it ("instant gratification") Steps back to explain the theory behind the solution Helps you leverage your new understanding to refine your solution Provides advanced hands-on guidance that builds on what you've learned Modern Authentication with Active Directory brings together all the knowledge you'll need to address any authentication challenge -- in any on-premises, mobile, or cloud environment.

A Guide to Claims-Based Identity and Access Control

As systems have become interconnected and more complicated, programmers needed ways to identify parties across multiple computers. One way to do this was for the parties that used applications on one computer to authenticate to the applications (and/or operating systems) that ran on the other computers. This mechanism is still widely used-for example, when logging on to a great number of Web sites. However, this approach becomes unmanageable when you have many co-operating systems (as is the case, for example, in the enterprise). Therefore, specialized services were invented that would register and authenticate users, and subsequently provide claims about them to interested applications. Some well-known examples are NTLM, Kerberos, Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), and the Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML). Most enterprise applications need some basic user security features. At a minimum, they need to authenticate their users, and many also need to authorize access to certain features so that only privileged users can get to them. Some apps must go further and audit what the user does. On Windows®, these features are built into the operating system and are usually quite easy to integrate into an application. By taking advantage of Windows integrated authentication, you don't have to invent your own authentication protocol or manage a user database. By using access control lists (ACLs), impersonation, and features such as groups, you can implement authorization with very little code. Indeed, this advice applies no matter which OS you are using. It's almost always a better idea to integrate closely with the security features in your OS rather than reinventing those features yourself. But what happens when you want to extend reach to users who don't happen to have Windows accounts? What about users who aren't running Windows at all? More and more applications need this type of reach, which seems to fly in the face of traditional advice. This book gives you enough information to evaluate claims-based identity as a possible option when you're planning a new application or making changes to an existing one. It is intended for any architect, developer, or information technology (IT) professional who designs, builds, or operates Web applications and services that require identity information about their users.

Learn what it takes to build large scale, mission critical applications -hardened applications- on the Azure cloud platform. This 208 page book covers the techniques and engineering principles that every architect and developer needs to know to harden their Azure/.NET applications to ensure maximum reliability and high availability when deployed at scale. While the techniques are implemented in .NET and optimized for Azure, the principles here will also be valuable for users of other cloud-based development platforms. Applications come in a variety of forms, from simple apps that can be built and deployed in hours to mega-scale apps that need significantly higher engineering rigor and robust organizations to deliver them. How do you build such massively scalable applications to keep pace with traffic demands while always being ‘online’ with five 9's availability? The authors take you step by step through the process of evaluating and building applications with the appropriate hardness attributes. For example, it is easy to say that an application should be available "all the time", but it is very important to understand what each level of 9 for availability means and the resulting implications on engineering and resources. The book explains the details required for developers and IT Pros to get it right in Azure.
