Federated Authentication Service 2106

Federated Authentication Service (FAS) is a privileged component designed to integrate with Active Directory Certificate Services. It dynamically issues certificates for users, allowing them to log on to an Active Directory environment as if they had a smart card. This allows StoreFront to use a broader range of authentication options, such as SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) assertions. SAML is commonly used as an alternative to traditional Windows user accounts on the Internet.

Federated Authentication Service 2106 is the latest Current Release version of FAS. This documentation reflects features and configurations in this latest release.
