In this module, the student is introduced to Enterprise scenarios and the issues surrounding businesses identities. Then an examination of the features of Azure AD will be covered. Later modules will include a deeper dive into the topics first reviewed here.
In this module you will be introduced to extending Active Directory on-premises directories to Azure AD, using Azure AD Connect. Areas explored include enabling single sign-on for all cloud-based applications and synchronizing User attributes automatically between the Cloud and On-Premises.
During this Module the student will learn how to enable single sign-on to simplify user access to thousands of cloud applications from Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS devices. The personalized web-based access panel will be covered where Users can launch applications from the web or mobile apps using their company credentials. In addition, customizations of the Portal with company branding will also be covered.
Following on the knowledge from module 3, the student will learn how to use the Application Proxy to go beyond SaaS applications and publish on-premises web applications to provide secure remote access and single sign-on to them. We will also detail the functionalities of OAuth and how to update your web apps code to have Azure AD authentication getting integrated.
In this module students will learn how to delegate important tasks to employees, such as resetting passwords and creating and managing groups which will then synch back to the On-Premise Active Directory. The portal will then have another layer of security added with the implementation of Azure Multi-Factor Authentication. Students will learn how MFA prevents unauthorized access to both on-premises and cloud applications by providing an additional level of authentication.
In this module, you will learn about 2 recently-added features to Azure AD, namely Azure AD B2B and B2C (business to business / business to consumer). The introduction of B2B/B2C will high-level information on how companies can stay connected with partners and consumers using a cloud identity service that is more reliable, and cost effective compared to on-premises systems. Built on Azure Active Directory, the highly secure cloud identity platform that handles billions of authentications per day, Azure Active Directory B2B/B2C is a highly avaiExercisele, global, identity management service for consumer-facing applications that scales to hundreds of millions of identities.
The introduction to Azure Active Directory Domain Services will help the student understand how Azure virtual machines can be joined to a domain without the need to deploy domain controllers. Users sign in to these virtual machines using their corporate Active Directory credentials and access resources seamlessly.
Office 365 identity is completely based on Azure Active Directory, but a lot of the user management is done from within the Office 365 portal itself, which makes it sometimes confusing. Other features are also overlapping between the way Office 365 handles them, and how they work from within Azure AD natively (Multi-Factor authentication is a good example). This module will highlight how both cloud world identity systems are inter-connected and work together in offering a secure, reliable and feature-rich identity solution.
· Office 365 Tenants
· Exploring the different Office 365 Identity Solutions
· Integration options with Azure Active Directory identity solutions
· Managing Identity objects using Office 365
In this module, we will discuss the difference between the long-standing Azure AD Federation (ADFS) hybrid identity solution, and map it with one of the newest updates to Azure Active Directory, being Azure AD Pass-Through authentication.
Students will learn the best practices, solution architecture and benefits of both solutions.
· What is Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS)
· ADFS Architecture
· ADFS benefits
· Azure AD Pass-through authentication
Learn Azure Active Directory features: In this lab you will learn the different aspects and key features of Azure Active Directory, and more specifically how it integrates in a hybrid identity solution.
