Federation on Windows Azure

My teammate Vittorio has put out some new guidance and a great new toolkit that shows how to use federation today with Windows Identity Foundation (WIF or Geneva) on Windows Azure.  I know this has been a very common request, especially as services move outside of the private datacenters and into the cloud and as vendors try to build true SaaS applications that need to integrate seamlessly into the customer's experience.

As the technologies evolve, the guidance will be kept up to date.  For now, this is a great piece of work that gets us past some of the early roadblocks we encountered.
