Get Started with ASP.NET Identity 2.0

Microsoft's identity story has been evolving over the years to make it easier for developers to authenticate and authorize users of their applications. Securing data is critical, and understanding how to use the tools is critical. When the provider model was introduced 10 years ago it met the needs of the time, where users would create an account with a password. Today it is increasingly popular to recognize that users want and need to be able to reuse existing accounts across applications. Included in the release of Visual Studio 2012 was a Simple Membership Provider that enabled this, and in 2013 we get Identity 2.0. In this session we will look at the evolution of the identity story and see how we can use the tools out of the box to enable 3rd party identity, customizing profile data, account verification and multi-factor auth (MFA).
