Description

Implementing a plan to ensure only authorized users access your Office 365 and on-premises content is important for the safety of your company information, but can cause issues for your users. In this course, Implementing and Managing Federated Identities for SSO, you’ll explore how to provide users access to content in Office 365 and on-premises using a secure authentication method, while avoiding the need for them to provide credentials multiple times. This configuration requires the use of Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS), which implements single sign-on (SSO) to provide users access to on-premises and O365 content after signing on just once. First, you’ll learn about the planning, hardware, and software requirements of AD FS, along with the steps necessary to install it. Then, you'll discover which installation method you should choose based on your authentication requirements, number of accounts, and number of AD FS servers. Next, you’ll explore the steps and tools needed to prepare your on-premises Active Directory configuration for the AD FS integration. Finally, after installing AD FS and the AD FS Proxy servers, you’ll examine the steps necessary to configure and manage them to ensure successful SSO for your users. By the end of this course, you'll have a better understanding of how to ensure your company's information remains secure, while keeping the sign-on process as simple as possible.

Course Overview
Hello everyone. My name is Brian Alderman, and welcome to my course, Implementing and Managing Federated Identities of SSO or Single Sign On. I'm a Microsoft MVP, and MCT, a published book author, and an international conference speaker, and a consultant for my company called, MicroTechPoint. Providing users access to content where some of it is stored in Office 365, and some of it is stored on-premises is becoming very common. In this course you're going to discover how to minimize the burden on your users when accessing their content regardless of where it is stored. With the implementation of AD FS or Active Directory Federation Services, you can configure SSO or Single Sign On between on-premises AD and Office 365's Azure AD. With SSO your users are able to quickly access your content regardless of where it is stored without without additional prompts for their credentials. This course will provide an understanding of SSO and the steps necessary to prepare for, install, and configure AD FS for use with SSO. In this course we are going to introduce and discuss planning considerations for on-premises Active Directory for use with AD FS, AD FS and AD FS proxy requirements, and the installation steps of each, as well as the configuration of AD FS and the AD FS proxy servers. By the end of the course you'll know how to prepare your on-prem AD deployment for AD FS integration. You'll also learn the AD FS requirements, components, and installation steps, along with how you configure both AD FS and AD FS proxy servers. Before beginning the course you should be familiar with Office 365, and have an Office 365 tenant, as well as a public facing, on-premises Active Directory domain controller that you can use to perform these AD FS configuration steps as you learn them. In addition, an understanding of PowerShell will be very helpful. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about Active Directory federation services for Single Sign On with the Implementing and Managing Federated Identities for SSO course here at Pluralsight.
