Masterclass: Managing Active Directory Federation Services for Multiple Organizations [ADS]

Are you about to implement Active Directory Federation Services and Claims? With this course you will learn how to implement the most business oriented server role. The course focuses on implementation scenarios, including practice in the newest technologies and solutions delivered with Windows Server 2019. You will get all the knowledge you will need when you are planning to host services that will connect users across different organizations.

Multi organization ADFS is a perfect course if you need to implement ADFS across different organizations!

Federated Identity is the most discussed topic in terms of organization cooperation right now, and with this course you will get all the knowledge you will need when you are planning to host services that will connect users across different organizations.

As an add-on course, we will extend previous labs with multi organizations trust, discover problems arising from connecting remote parties and find an automated way to make sure that everything is working smoothly. Using ADFS on Windows 2019, we will connect parties using various active directory topologies and versions, to simulate all the problems that you will be facing in real world deployment. As a CQURE course, we will focus on security of ADFS, and show a way to solve common access problems – from hacking the user identity, to solving permission problems.

A good enterprise implementation is not complete if we do not think about backup and scripting – so after implementing business partner connectivity, we will focus on scripting the implementation, which will not only allow us to quickly backup and restore our servers, but also allow us to prepare automatic configuration scripts for remote party.

The last part of this course is focused on large ADFS implementations, where load-balancing client traffic is a must. You will not only learn how to load balance ADFS farm, but also get to known Microsoft load balancer included in IIS.

Virtual delivery with live Trainer

Before you participate on a virtual course, we always try to arrange a 15-20 minute test session with the participants a week before to make sure that everyone is capable to attend the Masterclass. Below you will find the technical requirements for connecting to the virtual training:

  • A computer with a stable internet connection (preferably Windows or Mac OS)
  • Permissions for outgoing RDP connections to external servers (to our lab environment) – port 3389
  • A headset (headphones + microphone)
  • Webcam (built-in or plug-in)
  • Additional monitor will be helpful but it’s not required
