Q: In AD FS, do you need to purchase additional CALs?

AD FS (Active Directory Federated Services) allow you to provide single sign on (SSO) capability to your business partners. You, as the resource organization, control the access. Your partner organization (or account organization) controls the accounts. That way the user management is not with you, but security is. The users of the partner organization can get access to your resources without creating new user accounts and passwords.

The question of licensing comes into play. Microsoft that a licensing option called External Connector or EC license. This option allows you to provide access to your Windows Server 2000/2003/2008 environments to users who are part of a partner organization and access your resources remotely. You can also utilize a standards Server 2008 CAL for this.

I still recommend talking with a Microsoft Licensing Specialist to best determine the licensing model for your organization.
