The topic of claims, or trusted user attributes, is an established and well defined concept within the
identity management space. In SharePoint 2010, Microsoft introduced support for a claims-based identity model. Claims-based identities can be used in Microsoft SharePoint to enhance the process of user authentication. By harnessing the power of claims and extending its use to authorization, organizations can also effectively manage security and governance policies for accessing valuable information assets. It is important to
understand the many concepts of the claims-based identity paradigm in order to implement granular,
scalable and dynamic security within Microsoft SharePoint.
Organizations can implement and effectively leverage user claims in Microsoft SharePoint 2010 to securely share sensitive information. By implementing claims-based authorization in SharePoint and leveraging the benefits of trusted user attributes, organizations can solve many of the security challenges they face in their collaboration and file sharing environments. Further, it becomes evident that in order to properly manage security and fully realize the potential of claims, organizations must have solutions that automatically enforce access control and security policies on all of their SharePoint content.
This new white paper describes how organizations can implement and effectively leverage user claims in Microsoft SharePoint 2010 to securely share sensitive information. Download the “Harness the Power of Claims to Protect Information” white paper, or go to our webpage, and learn how you can successfully implement claims-based authorization across all the SharePoint content in your organization.
