Chapter: Course conclusion and review
Lecture: Review: Introduction to the Microsoft Identity Platform
0:00 Introduction to identity with the proliferation of the Internet.
0:04 Digital identities are now everywhere. We rely on digital identities to create customizable immersive experiences
0:11 while at the same time securing access to resources and sensitive information. The average person has over 1000 digital identities across the web.
0:20 Identity systems are inherently hard to build as well and can easily become a target on
0:26 any system. The problem is further exacerbated by the fact that most users out there
0:31 are lazy and they definitely adopt bad habits when it comes to password management. With so many things that can potentially go wrong.

0:44 There are many identity providers out there that can help us build scalable and secure
0:50 authentication to our applications. Microsoft identity is one self service built on top of open standards such as Open ID connect and Oauth2.
