Claims-Based Flexible Authentication in Dynamics AX 2012

Dynamics AX 2012 provides a new way to authenticate users in AX, called claims-based / flexible authentication. In this approach, you don't have to create users in Active Directory first to give them access to use AX Enterprise Portal / AIF. And this is really a very nice and a way to go approach for giving AX access to external users who are not part of the organization's Active Directory structure. For example; now you are no longer required to create vendors and customers in Active Directory to have them access vendor self-service portal or customer self-service portal respectively.
