I currently have a mobile application that's been using AWS's IAM infrastructure that allows me to provide temporary access tokens to anonymous mobile devices. This allows them to run queries against AWS services from a mobile device. Would anyone happen to know if Windows Azure has a drop-in replacement for this too? Would Windows Azure Access Control be able to do this? Thanks!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

There are three identity access options currently available in Windows Azure. These three options include running Windows Server Active Directory, giving users the ability to sign into SAAS apps through a single source and letting users log into cloud-based applications through social media platforms like Facebook, Google+, etc.

Business apps can also utilize Azure Active Directory Access Control to let users log in using different identities and profiles from Google, Facebook, Twitter and other major identity providers in the social media space.

Windows Server Active Directory can be operated in the cloud using virtual machines created with Azure Virtual Machines.

Azure Active Directory can also allow users the ability to single sign-on to SaaS applications.
