ADFS in Windows Server 2012

Windows Server 2012 will include a new version of Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS).

Compared to ADFS 2.0 some of the news are:

  • Integration with Dynamic Access Control scenarios
  • Improved installation experience using Server Manager
  • Additional Windows PowerShell cmdlet tools

AD FS can be used with the user and device claims that are issued using Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) in Windows Server 2012 for various Dynamic Access Control scenarios. This integration enables AD FS to consume AD DS claims that are included in Kerberos tickets as a result of domain authentication.
