Microsoft's new directory-federation services finally ready to roll.

Microsoft is poised to announce the release to the Web (RTW) of its “Geneva” Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS).

ADFS 2.0, codenamed “Geneva,”
is part of Microsoft’s identity/security platform, as well as of its Azure cloud operating environment. ADFS, a Windows Server component, provides Web single-sign-on (SSO) technologies to authenticate a user to multiple Web applications. The ADFS 2.0 technology is part of the Azure Services layer, company officials have said, given ADFS is designed to allow users to employ single sign-on across both cloud-hosted and on-premises applications.

John Fontana — former Network World journalist turned Ping Identity evangelist — blogged about the pending ADFS release on April 28. Microsoft officials confirmed the due date. According to a company spokesperson, ““The general availability for ADFS 2.0 for customers is imminent – within the next few weeks.”
