Mastering Identity and Access Management with Microsoft Azure

By: Jochen Nickel

Overview of this book

Microsoft Azure and its Identity and Access Management is at the heart of Microsoft’s Software as a Service, including Office 365, Dynamics CRM, and Enterprise Mobility Management. It is an essential tool to master in order to effectively work with the Microsoft Cloud. Through practical, project based learning this book will impart that mastery. Beginning with the basics of features and licenses, this book quickly moves on to the user and group lifecycle required to design roles and administrative units for role-based access control (RBAC). Learn to design Azure AD to be an identity provider and provide flexible and secure access to SaaS applications. Get to grips with how to configure and manage users, groups, roles, and administrative units to provide a user- and group-based application and self-service access including the audit functionality. Next find out how to take advantage of managing common identities with the Microsoft Identity Manager 2016 and build cloud identities with the Azure AD Connect utility. Construct blueprints with different authentication scenarios including multi-factor authentication. Discover how to configure and manage the identity synchronization and federation environment along with multi -factor authentication, conditional access, and information protection scenarios to apply the required security functionality. Finally, get recommendations for planning and implementing a future-oriented and sustainable identity and access management strategy.

Choosing the Right Technology, Methods, and Future Trends


Yeah! We had our first basic experience with Azure MFA and RMS on-premises integration. We have also made our first small steps into discovering Windows Server 2016. Remember, this just the tip of the iceberg. You should now be able to configure and manage the access management part of the basic hybrid scenario. You should also be able to address and implement additional security features in order to fulfil higher security requirements.

We always recommend you need to build labs from scratch so as to understand all the important tasks required. Furthermore, it enables you to get a working demo environment to show off its functionality to your boss or co-workers.

To professional readers, we have prepared some highlights in the following chapters. Do you want to know them? Then go ahead, and it will be our pleasure to give you some additional hints for your practical work.
