Microsoft Federation Extensions for SharePoint 3.0
The Microsoft Federation Extensions for SharePoint 3.0 Package adds powerful capabilities to existing SharePoint deployments. These capabilities include enabling federation for SharePoint applications, externalizing user authentication from SharePoint applications to a Security Token Service (STS), and the ability to make SharePoint applications claims-aware. The federation extensions can be used in both Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) 3.0 and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 deployments.
