        Active Directory Federation Services 2.0, and Windows Identity Foundation comprise an identity & access solution to help developers and IT professionals simplify access to applications and other systems with an open claims-based model. Windows Identity Foundation helps simplify user access for developers by externalizing user access from applications via claims and reducing development effort with pre-built security logic and integrated .NET tools. Active Directory Federation Services 2.0 helps IT efficiently deploy and manage new applications by reducing custom implementation work, helping establish a consistent security model, and facilitating seamless collaboration between organizations with automated federation tools. The platform includes built-in interoperability via open industry standards and claims, and implements the industry Identity Metasystem vision for open and interoperable identity.
