IdentityServer is an open source framework for building authorization servers that support a bunch of different authentication and authorization protocols, most importantly OAuth, OpenID Connect, and ADFS. In this session, you will learn about IdentityServer capabilities, how to set up IdentityServer to support a single ASP.NET Web Site or Web API, or to set it up as a central authentication server enabling Single Sign On (SSO) from all your client apps.

You will learn:

  • How to set up and configure IdentityServer as a Single Sign On authentication server
  • How to set up authentication and authorization in your Web APIs and MVC pages based on an IdentityServer sign in and access control tokens
  • What the options are for different degrees of authorization logic in your apps
