6. What is smart lockout in Azure Active Directory (AD)? How it works? Smart lockout can recognize sign-ins that come from valid users and treat them differently than ones of attackers and other unknown sources. Attackers get locked out, while your users continue to access their accounts and be productive.

How smart lockout works – By default, smart lockout locks the account from sign-in attempts for one minute after 10 failed attempts. The account locks again after each subsequent failed sign-in attempt, for one minute at first and longer in subsequent attempts.

Smart lockout tracks the last three bad password hashes to avoid incrementing the lockout counter for the same password. If someone enters the same bad password multiple times, this behavior won’t cause the account to lock out.

7. What is Azure Active Directory B2C ?
Azure Active Directory B2C (Azure AD B2C) is an identity management service that enables custom control of how your customers sign up, sign in, and manage their profiles when using your iOS, Android, .NET, single-page (SPA), and other applications.

Azure Active Directory B2C provides business-to-customer identity as a service. Customers use their preferred social, enterprise, or local account identities to get single sign-on access to your applications and APIs.
