Hi all,

I am trying to understand how to implement automatic login, based on Windows user, using ADFS technology.

I read everywhere that it supports SAML and Oauth but I should go for SAML because this is what Enterprises are using for SSO.

I do understand this but what I don't understand is why Oauth is "for Internet" and it is authorization oriented and not authentication.

I've googled and read quite a bit but still the concept is not clear for me.

Is there anyone that can help me understanding the difference?
