5 Identities used to access resources: On-premise (Active Directory)Cloud (Office 365)Available options:Separate credentials in corporate directory and in Office 365Migrate existing credentials to Office 365Identity Federation with ADFS 2.0IdM optionsIdentities are used for determining what users may access.Companies probably have invested in an identity management solution, such as Active DirectoryWhen Office 365 is introduced, the organization has three options:Maintain separate user accounts both on-premise and in the cloudMigrate all accounts to the cloud (only for small shops)Setup Identity Federation
6 Sub-optimal user experience Painful to manageSeparate password policiesMultiple credentials to manageManagement of sign-in application (BPOS)Sub-optimal user experienceLog-in each time the service is accessed2 accounts and/or passwords to manageSet up of sign-in application with every new computer used by each user (BPOS)IdM optionsSeparate credentialsSeparate credentials for both Office 365 and on-premise authentication has many disadvantages.Administration is not efficientUser experience is not optimal
7 migrate existing credentials No more corporate credentialsCredentials and resources in the cloudSmall shopsNo dedicated IT-guyNo local resourcesIdM optionsmigrate existing credentialsMigrating all accounts to Office 365 means there are no more corporate credentials. If at all possible, this would only work for smaller shops.This would work for starting organizations without a dedicated IT-person.
8 Credential management on-premises Trust with Federation Gateway Office 365 is Relying PartyPrerequisitesDomain UPN Suffix routableOwn the domain (SSL certificate)IdM optionsidentity federationCredentials are managed on-premise and all corporate account and password policies apply.The Federation Gateway ensures access to the online environment, handles authentication for other services. MFG is the intermediate between your directory and MSOLOffice 365 is the relying party, in SAMl terminology.Prerequisites for this to work are that you need to prove that you own the domain by modifying the DNS records at your providerAlso, the internal domain name must be routable over the internet. That could result in a separate project for renaming the domain.
9 user accounts federated identity identity identity federation federated identityidentitycontoso \charlieidentityfederationIdentity Federation enables seamless authentication (SSO) with on-premise credentials to resources in the cloud (Office 365).The credentials that is used on-premise is also used for Authorization purposes in Office 365.Charlie uses his account in many ways to access local resources. When accessing MSOL, he would need to provide a new set of credentials. With federation in place, logging in will be seamless.

29 Directory Synchroni-zation Directory Synchronization is used between Active Directory on-premises and Office 365Federation requires DirSync in this scenarioUsers’ UPNs are leveraged for account matchingDirectory Synchroni-zationThe next step is configuring Directory Synchronization by connecting running the DirSync tool from a separate server. This tool cannot be run from the same server that runs ADFSOnly after DirSync is configured and the users are synced to MSOL, they can be associated with a license plan. So, Federation is technically not dependent on DirSync, but effectively it won’t work without.
