How to download Microsoft Azure Active Directory Authentication Library (ADAL)

The Azure Active Directory Authentication Library (ADAL) enables client application developers to authenticate users to cloud Azure AD or on-premises Active Directory (AD), and obtain tokens for securing API calls.

There are three main features in ADAL:
  • ADAL supports the automatic refreshment of tokens after they reach their expiration;
  • It also supports asynchronous methods that require tokens.
  • ADAL can manage the process of getting tokens and, by default, stores tokens in what Microsoft calls an "in-memory token cache."
