Loads of Knowledge

Multi organization ADFS is a perfect course if you need to implement ADFS across different organizations! Federated Identity is the most discussed topic in terms of organization cooperation right now, and with this course you will get all the knowledge you will need when you are planning to host services that will connect users across different organizations. As an add-on course, we will extend previous labs with multi organizations trust, discover problems arising from connecting remote parties and find an automated way to make sure that everything is working smoothly. Using ADFS on Windows 2019, we will connect parties using various active directory topologies and versions, to simulate all the problems that you will be facing in real world deployment

As a CQURE course, we will focus on security of ADFS, and show a way to solve common access problems – from hacking the user identity, to solving permission problems. A good enterprise implementation is not complete if we do not think about backup and scripting –so after implementing business partner connectivity, we will focus on scripting the implementation, which will not only allow us to quickly backup and restore our servers, but also allow us to prepare automatic configuration scripts for remote party.

The last part of this course is focused on large ADFS implementations, where load-balancing client traffic is a must. You will not only learn how to load balance ADFS farm, but also get to known Microsoft load balancer included in IIS.

To get more practice we offer three extra weeks of labs online!

At the end of the course you will be able to

  • Deploy AD Federation Services to provide claims-aware authentication for multiple organizations
  • Implement AD Federation Services high availability and load balancing
  • Implement Claims filtering and processing, to secure multi-organization enabled application
  • Script and backup ADFS environment
  • Automate business partner setup procedure for ADFS
  • Configure Active Directory for ADFS.

Intense exercises:

The course focuses on implementation scenarios, including practice in the newest technologies and solutions delivered with Windows Server 2019.

The last part of this course is focused on large ADFS implementations, where load-balancing client traffic is a must. You will not only learn how to load balance ADFS farm, but also get to known Microsoft load balancer included in IIS.

This course is ideal for:

Enterprise administrators, infrastructure architects, security professionals, systems engineers, network administrators, IT professionals, security consultants and other people responsible for implementing network and perimeter security.

Platform and Technical Requirements:

To participate in the course you need a Stable internet connection. For the best learning experience we also need you to have a webcam, headphones and a microphone.
