The framework is a set of tools that help facilitate authentication, authorization, and access control. It is much more than a SSO. It is a central location for users to access their all of their applications. For developers it is a tool for rapid development and integration between apps.
The core application runs on ASP.NET 4 and SQL Server (2005 or 2008). The API which lives in the core is available to any application or language!
