Understanding Office 365 and AAD Federated Identity Types

I thought I would take this oppourtunity to cover off some of the high-level points of the trade-offs and differences between the ways of achieving identity federation with Office 365 and Azure Active Directory. Please remember that this isn’t an exhaustive list of things to consider but a good taster.

In some future posts, I will be covering deployment scenarios for the two methods of identity federation and also the software we need to configure and deploy in order to make it work.
