Identity 2.0, Part 1: Introduction

with expert Mike Benkovich

Since the release of Visual Studio 2005 and .NET 2.0 Microsoft has provided tools to implement the patterns around user authentication and authorization. Since introducing the provider model which supported core requirements of login with a username and a password, and the accompanying tools and controls available in the WinForms platform, the industry has matured and changed. Today you need to be able to support devices and users coming into our app from a wide variety of sources. You've seen the explosion of Social Media and 3rd party identity providers that you need to integrate. You also need a way to get more confidence that a user is who they say they are, with things like Multi-Factor Authentication. In this latest release of Identity you will see how well they meet the needs of a modern web app. You will explore the features and the implementation so you will know what it can do and how you can use it.
