Your presentation gave a quick and meaningful insight into ADFS. Thank you so much.
Personally, I see a lot of potential in ADFS particularly for e-government. Couple of years ago, Microsoft had proposed to the govt organization i worked for in Oman to link different government ministries through Active Directory. At that time the problem we faced was reluctance in exposing entire AD of an organization to all on the network. However today with ADFS and its concept of selective resource sharing and keeping the authentication separate makes it much easier to convince the authorities e-govt.
