Azure Active Directory often referred to as Azure AD provides a simple way for businesses to manage identity and access, both in the cloud and on-premises. Azure AD integrates well with many features of an on-premises domain controller and supports user password hash sync so that users do not have to maintain multiple passwords on-prem and in Azure, AD FS synchronization and Self-Service Password Reset for users is also available.

Authentication is performed through protocols such as SAML, Ws-Federation and OAuth. Unlike on-premises which uses LDAP to query AD, applications and users can use what’s called the Azure AD Graph API which is a REST API that works over HTTP and HTTPs for sending queries and retrieving data.

Azure AD Connect tools is the tools used to integrate Azure AD with your on-premises domain controllers. Older tools you may have heard of like DirSync and Azure AD Sync have been replaced with the Azure AD Connect tool and those tools have already reached their end of life as of April 13, 2017.
