Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Neil Morrissey, and welcome to my course, Implement Windows Server 2019 Identity Federation and Access Solutions. I'm a solutions architect and developer, and I'll be guiding you through the latest version of Active Directory Federation Services in this course. AD FS is a role in Windows Server 2019 that allows you to centralize authentication and authorization and provide access to applications. It also lets your organization federate with other organizations so users can log in to externally hosted applications using their own internal credentials, all while keeping passwords securely stored on‑premises. And AD FS offers a variety of ways for users to authenticate. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include installing AD FS and upgrading from previous versions, understanding claims‑based authentication and how it works in AD FS, configuring the various authentication methods AD FS supports, like Windows integrated, forms based, and stronger authentication methods like Azure MFA and Windows Hello for Business, and you'll learn how to federate your organization with another organization, as well as how to federate with Azure AD so users have single sign‑on to applications hosted in the cloud. By the end of this course, you'll know how to leverage AD FS for authentication and authorization within your environment. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with Windows Server 2019 in general, and an understanding of Group Policy and Active Directory Certificate Services would be helpful too. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Active Directory Federation Services with the course, Implement Windows Server 2019 Identity Federation and Access Solutions, here on Pluralsight.
