The 2020 NT Konferenca, known as NT Remote 2020, the 25th edition of the NT Konferenca, kicks off in two weeks. I have been invited to deliver two sessions.
About NT Konferenca
NT Konferenca is the biggest Slovenian technological conference. Last year the event was visited by over two thousand attendees.
NT Konferenca is not just about IT trends and solutions. It is also about the ways how to include them in everyday business processes and how to effectively use them in business challenges in order to reach objectives in a more rapid, time-efficient and affordable way.
Previous NT Konferenca events took place in Grand Hotel Bernardin in Portorož, Slovenia. However, this 25th edition of the events is a remote event, featuring over 50 speakers.
About my sessions
I’ll be presenting two sessions:
Deep Dive into managing AD FS with Azure AD Connect
Azure AD Connect was meant as successor to DirSync with the added benefits of being the one-stop shop for admins to take care of hybrid cloud authentication. One of its main pillars is his ability to deploy, manage, monitor and even decommission an entire Active Directory Federation Services environment.
In this session,I share real-world tips, tricks, do's and don'ts around Azure AD Connect, specifically tailored to the thousands of admins still running and loving AD FS. The Hybrid Identity implementations I’ve deployed for multiple organizations have given me a clear overview of the strengths and weaknesses of Azure AD Connect.
In terms of management processes, Azure AD Connect’s ability to manage AD FS always surprised organizations in a positive way, because Azure AD Connect makes it so easy to implement an AD FS Farm, reset an Azure AD trust, federate an additional Azure AD domain, update the AD FS SSL certificate on all AD FS Servers and Web Application Proxies at once and verify federated login capabilities. It's so effective, that I’ll show you all of the above in just one session!
Hardening Hybrid Identity in the real world
As organizations rely heavily on Active Directory and embrace Azure Active Directory (AD), proper configurations of their setups becomes more important: as Azure AD is often built upon Active Directory, you need a solid base. As Azure AD offers more functionality, it too should be tuned.
To avoid the tyranny of the default settings, in some situations, we'll look at properly securing on-premises Active Directory Domain Services environments and hardening Azure AD tenants to match their levels of security.
Make sure to get the best tips and tricks in this session from an MVP whose team and peers have seen and done it all in Active Directory and Azure AD.
