Windows Azure – Authenticate ASP.Net Azure Web Application using Google Credentials


In this article we are going to see how to make use of the Access Control Service in Windows Azure to create an Authentication Mechanism using Google credentials for our ASP.Net Azure Web Application using Visual Studio 2010 and Windows Azure Management Portal.

Access Control Service in Windows Azure is a simplified process of providing Federated Authentication based on some rules for the application or on providing Claim based Authentication for WCF Rest Services. Microsoft Provides Access Control System with Windows Azure Appfabric with authentication and authorization for variety of applications like Web Applications and Web Services.
