Topic: Custom authentication providers in SharePoint 2007

Abstract: In ASP.NET 2.0 , there is an important concept called the authentication provider model which is used for many new features such as Membership and Role Management, Profiles, etc. Moss 2007 is built on the top WSS 3.0 which is in turn built on the top of ASP.NET 2.0. This means that both MOSS and WSS can utilize everything that ASP.NET 2.0 offers. In this session learn how to create a custom authentication provider, how to set up forms based authentication, get yourself familiar with issues/workarounds, manage your custom profiles and finally how to leverage this solution to expose your SharePoint sites to the external users. This session is targeted at both IT pros and developers.
