  1. Hi,
    That is a very elaborate representation. Thank you.
    however, I have a query. Suppose all my web apps (using browsers) have to be integrated with a single custom IDP only, and will never deal with any other IDP, can I build my apps so that they will directly trust the IDP and there will not be any role for ACS.

    What are the pros and cons of such a view…

    1. If apps don’t have to integrate with any other IDP, I see no problem.
    2. If there is a restriction that an app has to trust only an ACS for tokens, then this makes sense. But why should this be the case.

    As I am seeing it, ACS is playing a role as an STS only. I am not yet sure of session management for applications in Azure.

    so I want to know what I am missing here if we have to go with ACS only for federated authentication and authorization.

    Thanks and Regards,
    Kanduri

  2. We stumbled over here different web address and thought I may as well check
