QUESTION 1
You are designing a plan to deploy a new application to Azure. The solution must provide a single sign-on experience for users.
You need to recommend an authentication type.
Which authentication type should you recommend?

A. SAML credential tokens
B. Azure managed access keys
C. Windows Authentication
D. MS-CHAP

Answer: A

Explanation: A Microsoft cloud service administrator who wants to provide their Azure Active Directory (AD) users with sign-on validation can use a SAML 2.0 compliant SP-Lite profile based Identity Provider as their preferred Security Token Service (STS) / identity provider. This is useful where the solution implementer already has a user directory and password store on-premises that can be accessed using SAML 2.0. This existing user directory can be used for sign-on to Office 365 and other Azure AD-secured resources.
Reference: Use a SAML 2.0 identity provider to implement single sign-on

QUESTION 2
You need to design the system that alerts project managers to data changes in the contractor information app.
Which service should you use?

A. Azure Mobile Service
B. Azure Service Bus Message Queueing
C. Azure Queue Messaging
D. Azure Notification Hub

Answer: C

Explanation: * Scenario:
/ Mobile Apps: Event-triggered alerts must be pushed to mobile apps by using a custom Node.js script.
/ The service level agreement (SLA) for the solution requires an uptime of 99.9%
* If you are already using Azure Storage Blobs or Tables and you start using queues, you are guaranteed 99.9% availability. If you use Blobs or Tables with Service Bus queues, you will have lower availability.
Note: Microsoft Azure supports two types of queue mechanisms: Azure Queues and Service Bus Queues.
/ Azure Queues, which are part of the Azure storage infrastructure, feature a simple REST-based Get/Put/Peek interface, providing reliable, persistent messaging within and between services.
/ Service Bus queues are part of a broader Azure messaging infrastructure that supports queuing as well as publish/subscribe, Web service remoting, and integration patterns.

QUESTION 3
You need to recommend a solution that allows partners to authenticate.
Which solution should you recommend?

A. Configure the federation provider to trust social identity providers.
B. Configure the federation provider to use the Azure Access Control service.
C. Create a new directory in Azure Active Directory and create a user account for the partner.
D. Create an account on the VanArsdel domain for the partner and send an email message that contains the password to the partner.

Answer: B

Explanation: * Scenario: The partners all use Hotmail.com email addresses.
* In Microsoft Azure Active Directory Access Control (also known as Access Control Service or ACS), an identity provider is a service that authenticates user or client identities and issues security tokens that ACS consumes.
The ACS Management Portal provides built-in support for configuring Windows Live ID as an ACS Identity Provider.
Incorrect:
Not C, not D: Scenario: VanArsdel management does NOT want to create and manage user accounts for partners.
Reference: Identity Providers
