Before sending a new FEDAUTH cookie back to the user’s browser, Share Point calculates the expiration of the cookie with the following formula: SAML Token Lifetime – Logon Token Cache Expiration Window The above values are important since they govern the overall lifetime of the FEDAUTH cookie, and hence the session lifetime.
The following table describes each value and its source: This value, in minutes, is provided by the token issuer – ADFS.
Data published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society suggest direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) are safe and effective at achieving a sustained virologic response in older adults with hepatitis C virus (HCV)-related fibrosis or cirrhosis.
HCV clearance is essential in improving disease outcomes in the general population, but data on reducing liver-related complications and increasing life expectancy in older adults are limited.
In the case of ADFS, each Relying Party configuration (one for each instance of Share Point farm) has this value as part of the configuration.
By default, Share Point sets the session lifetime the same as this SAML token lifetime.
Use of a sliding session does not mean that we must compromise security.
Should a user become inactive, a sliding session will timeout just as the fixed session, the main difference that a user can extend a sliding session with continued use of the Share Point system.
A user session in Share Point 2010/2013 is the time in which a user is logged into Share Point without needing to re-authenticate.Share Point 2010 introduced Claims-based-Authentication (CBA), also present in Share Point 2013.CBA consists of authentication abstraction, using a Secure Token Service (STS), and identification of users with multiple attributes –claims – not just the traditional username and password pair. A typical STS implementation communicates over HTTPS, and packages user identity information (claim data) via signed and encrypted XML – Secure Assertion Markup Language (SAML).Authentication is essentially the process of validating a user is who they say they are, such that they can gain access to a system – in this context, the system is Share Point.Authentication is not authorization, which is the process in determine if a known user is permitted access to certain data in the system, after successful authentication.
