When I wrote about TechEd the other day I was not yet able to talk about another session I am scheduled to deliver, given that it contains then-unannounced news Smile Here there’s title and abstract:

WAD-B307  – Securing Rich Client Applications Using OAuth 2.0 and Windows Active Directory

-Date: June 5, 2013 from 3:15PM to 4:30PM
-Room: 261

Active Directory authentication is critical for enabling enterprise-ready applications and cloud services. Learn how apps installed on a user’s devices can use Windows Active Directory to authenticate the user to cloud hosted services, enabling single sign-on with both Windows Azure Active Directory as well Windows Server Active Directory accounts. The session is developer-focused, showing a walkthrough of developing a line-of-business application using the Active Directory Authentication Library, as well as demonstrating how to make your apps available as Software as a Service to multiple organizations using Active Directory. Learn the details of how OAuth 2.0 is used to secure the REST web service calls, going deep enough to understand how this simple protocol can be easily implemented on a variety of device platforms. We also look at the controls available to the Windows Azure Active Directory tenant administrator for controlling app authorization to services.

I can’t tell you how excited I am to finally be able to talk about how we are going to offer you a single library that can connect (with the same syntax!) with both Windows Azure AD and Windows Server AD Smile

Given that the session was embargoed, I expect that lots of people potentially interested on the topic won’t know about it. Please help me to spread the word, and if you are at TechEd and interested in identity… see you there!
