Updated code samples & chapters for Claims Identity Guide – Release Candidate

In synch with the availability of ADFS V2.0 Release Candidate, I’m very happy to announce that we are posting a new update of the guide. Our own “RC”.

You’ll find new samples and new chapters. Both content complete now.

We are now covering the following scenarios:

  1. Single Sign on for web applications: one company, 2 applications, before and after claims
  2. Windows Azure: an extension of scenario 1, this shows how to host a web application in Windows Azure and keeping SSO experience.
  3. Simple federation sample: 2 companies collaborating. SSO across different security realms.
  4. Federation with multiple partners: demonstrates an application with multiple federation relationships. It also shows WIF and MVC.
  5. Web Services: this is essentially scenario #3, but using WCF and a WPF smart client.

The samples are packaged now as a self-extractable zip file and includes a dependency checking tool that will help you identify, install and configure all pre-requisites:




Note: the tool is not yet signed, you will need to first run Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned in PowerShell.


The documents cover all scenarios listed above, in addition to the introductory chapters which are a must read if you are new to the world of claims. We have also included four appendices on various common subjects (e.g. certificates usage, detailed message exchange between clients and relaying parties, standards used, etc).

Please bear in mind, that these documents are not formatted to the final layout. That’s something we’ll do at the end of the project. However, the content is complete and we expect only minor changes and fixes to happen from now on.

I want to thank my team for all their hard work, and all external reviewers and advisors for all their feedback!

I hope you enjoy this guide!
