Microsoft Office 365’s Single Sign-On Options

The simplest option, running 2 mirrored Active Directory environments;

  • On premise Active Directory is the Master copy, Azure AD is a stand-alone mirror
  • MS Office 365 services are authenticated against Azure AD, not on premise
  • On Premise AD user accounts and passwords are synchronised regularly with Azure AD
  • A DirSync SSO environment is resilient against connectivity issues between on premise AD and Azure AD.

The more complete option, MS Office 365 services are authenticated against on premise AD;

  • On premise Active Directory is the Master copy
  • MS Office 365 services are authenticated in real time against on premise Active Directory
  • A trust is built between on premise AD and Azure AD
  • An ADFS SSO environment requires additional resilience against connectivity issues between on premise AD and Azure AD.
