ADFS Configuration in Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard with SharePoint 2013

The procedures in this article describe how to configure AD FS to act as an Identity Provider Security Token Service (IP-STS) for a SharePoint 2013 web application and Provider Hosted APP (SharePoint Add-In). In this configuration, AD FS issues SAML-based security tokens consisting of claims so that client computers can access web applications that use claims-based authentication. You can use an alternative identity provider than AD FS, but it must support the WS-Federation standard.
