Your custom applications, web services, Web APIs, native applications, mobile applications all have an authentication story in Azure AD. So do the various Microsoft offerings such as SQL Server, multi-factor authentication, business-to-business, business-to-consumer scenarios, etc. Indeed, this is a very deep and interesting topic, and it is a very important topic too. In this course, I explain basic application authentication scenarios with enough references to cover all scenarios. I then focus on Azure AD B2C, business-to-consumer, multi-factor authentication, certificate-based authentication, and even authenticating to SQL resources using Azure AD. At the end of this course, you will have an understanding of the expanse and possibilities of what Azure AD offers, armed with enough knowledge to dig deeper.
