SharePoint 2010 External User Authentication


  • Hi,

    I'm researching for what is the best way to do external user authentication in SP 2010 with the following requirements:

    1. Authentication should support complex passwords

    2. Support Password expiration

    3. Two step authentication like username/password and certificates.

    So far from reading posts on authentication for internet users, it seems Claim Authentication is the most secure way to go. Can anyone provide guidance on how to use claims authentication to meet the above requirements?

    Thank you,
