Last week I was in Germany, in the little village of Erding (near Munich), delivering two sessions at SharePoint Konferenz 2016. It was a very good event with fantastic speaker lineup and nice environment.
My two sessions were Extending Authentication and Authorization and High-Trust SharePoint Add-Ins for On-Premises Development.
Extending Authentication and Authorization
In this talk I focused on explaining the architecture of claims identity in SharePoint. From there I went to explain how to extend the claims with custom claim providers, together with the explanation on how to use other identity providers such as ADFS or Thinktecture Identity Server with SharePoint. I had a fairly good Q&A session after my talk.
You can find the sample claim provider code at http://bcned.in/ClaimProvider.
High-Trust SharePoint Add-Ins for On-Premises Development
My second session was focused on how to build on-premises apps/add-ins (high-trust or S2S) using certificate authentication instead of OAuth-brokered authentication. I highlighted some of the challenges and also some of the extensibility points that we don’t have in low-trust apps. Again, I had nice Q&A time after my talk.
