Speaking at SharePoint Saturday Belgium 2012

I’m delighted to speak at the next Belgian SharePoint Saturday on April 28, 2012.

SharePoint Saturday Belgium

I will deliver a talk in the administrator track:

Claims based authentication for mere mortals

In this session we will go through the basics of claims based authentication. What is it and what does it bring to the table? We will provide an overview of some basic and more advanced scenarios in which you would want to use claims based authentication. We will also touch upon related concepts like federated identity and single sign-on.

Furthermore, we will cover some real world implementation tips that might come in handy when considering claims based authentication before taking this route. There are some very common issues that you better be aware of.

This session is primarily targeted at SharePoint administrators, e.g. we won’t go into details on development topics such as custom claims providers although we will touch upon the subject.
