DEV202 - Azure Authentication for the SharePoint Developers and Admins

Bob German 

When SharePoint moved to the cloud, it switched from Active Directory to Azure for user and application identities. This is extra confusing because there three versions of Azure security in use, and they're quite different from traditional approaches such as Kerberos or SAML.

This session will demystify Azure security for technical professionals working with SharePoint Online. If you're a developer, you'll learn how to call SharePoint, Graph, or other web API's from your code; if you're an administrator, you'll learn the true implications of the consent form you're asked to agree to when you install something in the app catalog.

You'll also learn about the security features of the various app models, such as SharePoint Framework, SharePoint add-ins, and even the classic content editor web part.
