Azure AD as IdP via ACS and AD FS

June 19, 2013

So I’m somewhat on the roll here and last night recorded another quick thirty minutes demonstration for you guys. This one is very similar to the last one,  we are still using Azure AD as an Identity Provider, but this time we putting Access Control Service between AAD and ADFS/ application. Just like on this diagram.


So if you want to see how it works and more importantly how it can be configured then check out my latest video. Make sure to watch it in full screen and HD. Have fun and let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks, Dmitrii Lezine.

    Thanks for the writeup. It helped me clear lot of doubts i had about authenticating my external users against a AAD using 2-factor authentication. I just wanted to understand how this thing fits using a Reverse Proxy device for a extranet scenario. Can i assume this will work:-

    User sends a SSL request for URL intercepted by proxy server (F5, UAG,WAP not sure which one works we have F5 for now) it redirects request to ADFS 2.0 server on my DMZ with is RP for Proxy and which has a trust with ACS and AAD and so forth. Do you see any challenge sin this scenario?

    The Claims token gets propogated back in same form and after authentication is redirected back to internal SP servers.

    Thanks a lot for your feedback
