Hi All,

Can SSO be provided via LDAP(S)?
I know I can setup ADFS and use SAML.

This is to provide SSO to a cloud provider from my AD.

In addition, how would any AD data exchange then work? (i.e. user updates from the cloud application to my AD)
What would I need to configure on my end?

Thanks,
Andy

It will be combination of LDAPs and ADFS. Like ADLDS with ADFS you can use. It depends on your application requirement. Say you have application where you want to sync specific users or group from certain OU's, you can do it via ADLDS and on top of that you can use ADFS for SSO.

LDAP does not provide an SSO capabilities

It is possible to configure a an externally hosted application to use LDAP (I woudl suggest LDAPS to prevent credentials passign in clear text over the Internet, but that is a side issue)  to authenticate users that enter a username and password into an externally hosted application, but passing the credentials to the externally hosted application still has to be done, hence ADFS and SAML
