Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) is an authentication and authorization service that runs on Windows Server. AD FS provides users with single sign-on access between enterprise environments and web applications.

AD FS is a "configurable" identity provider, which means that additional configuration is required in order to use Active Directory Federation Services for social logins. If you are interested in employing AD FS as a social login IDP, please contact your Akamai representative.
