We're working on various WPF applications in our enterprise. We were using AD to authenticate users, however our IT department wants us to start using ADFS instead. I have basically no experience at ADFS. For that matter the IT folks are going to write the
ADFS service which we'll consume. It is my understanding that ADFS interacts with a URI. I think it would probably be a good idea to use a WebAPI service, for the ADFS service as an end point and let all of the WPF apps reference the WebAPI service(s). (Whether
there's only 1 or multiple WebAPI's we'll work out later.)
So, given that our ops is going to write the ADFS service. What I would like to know is how to interact with it. For example, do I just pass the Window's ID to the ADFS service and then get whatever claims we agree upon back? Would it be best if I return
whatever ADFS returns? Or should I specify a class(es) of the claims and hydrate those back to the WPF apps?

The following articles describe how to secure the Web API with ADFS.
