about this item

Active Directory has been thoroughly transformed to reflect the industry's breakneck shift to the cloud, modern authentication/authorization protocols such as OAuth2 and OpenId Connect, and new today's new mobile, SaaS, and single-page application paradigms. Now, there's an authoritative, start-to-finish guide to building Active Directory authentication solutions for these radically new environments.

Author Vittorio Bertocci is the Microsoft Program Manager responsible for implementing these new technologies. Bertocci drove them from initial concept to general availability, played a key role in their technical design, and wrote many of their samples and much of their documentation. Nobody is more qualified to write this book.

In Modern Authentication with Active Directory, he delivers comprehensive guidance for building complete solutions. Balancing theory with concrete code-level guidance, he paints a complete picture -- placing individual tasks in context, explaining how disparate tasks fit together, helping you choose and design your solution, and demonstrating how to implement it reliably, safely, and efficiently.

Step by step, you'll gain deep mastery of Active Directory Authentication Library (ADAL) for Windows Store, Windows Phone, .NET, and JavaScript single-page app development; ASP.NET OWIN security components for Web API and OpenId Connect, and much more. You'll also gain deep insight into today's new authentication protocols, eliminating the need to read and interpret abstruse specifications documents.

Drawing on his deep technical expertise, Bertocci shows how to go far beyond the basic SDK samples, smoothly handling advanced scenarios and "edge cases." For each major app type, he:

  • Presents a typical high-level scenario
  • Offers quick guidance on how to implement it ("instant gratification")
  • Steps back to explain the theory behind the solution
  • Helps you leverage your new understanding to refine your solution
  • Provides advanced hands-on guidance that builds on what you've learned

Modern Authentication with Active Directory brings together all the knowledge you'll need to address any authentication challenge -- in any on-premises, mobile, or cloud environment.
