This white paper describes how Web applications in Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 can use claims-based authentication to provide authenticated access to entities that are external to your organization and enable multiple authentication types within a single zone.

 ( Please forgive the typos.  Anywhere ADFS was in the paper was find-replaced with AD FS broke the code examples and powershell.  I am working to get that revised currently.  Also special thanks to a couple of the authors/contributers who are missing from the credits -  Adam Conkle and Tyler Durham. )
