Configure IFD for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013


Applies To: Dynamics CRM 2013

Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server 2011 and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server 2013 use claims-based authentication to authenticate internal users and to enable Internet access for external users not using VPN.

In claims-based authentication, an identity provider that contains a security token service (STS) responds to authentication requests and issues SAML security tokens that include any number of claims about a user, such as a user name and groups the user belongs to. A relying party application receives the SAML token and uses the claims inside to decide whether to grant the client access to the requested resource. Claims-based authentication can be used to authenticate your organization's internal users, external users, and users from partner organizations.

This content provides the steps needed to configure Internet-facing deployment (IFD) using claims-based authentication. Much more conceptual and procedural information is available in the white paper Configure Claims-based Authentication for Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server available in the Microsoft Download Center.
