Authentication and sign-on scenarios with Umbraco

This talk focused on managing Umbraco back office users and members. One of the most interesting things about development to me is Web Security, which is one of the main things that drew me to go to this particular talk. Raabye did a fantastic job of going into some of the ways you can protect a user's/member's login credentials with external authentication. Utilizing Microsoft's Azure Active Directory Multi-Factor Authentication, you are able to use the standard password associated with an Umbraco login along with an external device (that's not easily duplicated) like a phone, smart card, or USB Token. You can also utilize Azure Active Directory to control the permissions of users and members as well as create groups of permissions - simplifying user/member management.
