I am a big fan of Azure PaaS services. They enable me to put my effort on customer value add rather than irrelevant technicalities. Unfortunately, I have a customer case now in which I must dive deeper and I am a bit uncomfortable with the details. Hopefully somebody could confirm my thinking or pinpoint the soft spots.


My customer uses Shibboleth authentication and I'd like to use Azure Web App as a app platform. I have studied on how to implement that and understood that I should implement Web App Custom Authentication using Microsoft.Azure.Mobile.Server.Login package. Naturally there are many details on how to communicate with Shibboleth server, but other than that, this sounds too easy to be true.

So is there some issues or side effects which I should know or take into account when implementing this?
