In this episode of geekSpeak, industry guru Michele Leroux Bustamante will introduce us to the Access Control Service which is part of the Azure Services Platform under .NET Services. The Access Control Service allows applications to delegate authentication with built-in support for a variety of credential types, supplies claims-transformation for dependent applications, is a scalable on-demand solution, and removes the need to provide dedicated development and IT resources for an on-site STS that can scale. Michele will show us how developers can build federated security scenarios leveraging the Access Control Service – your Security Token Service hosted in the cloud. Your hosts for this geekSpeak are Lynn Langit and Glen Gordon.
The geekSpeak webcast series brings you industry experts in a "talk-radio" format hosted by developer evangelists from Microsoft. These experts share their knowledge and experience about a particular developer technology and are ready to answer your questions in real time during the webcast.
