There is an official guide found on MSDN here. It's too long to copy here but basically you will need to:

  • Configure the Windows Live ID Security Token Service with Microsoft Services Manager
  • Install the X509 certificate on the Sharepoint server (you could also use an self-signed one).
  • Configure your site to use claim auth from the windows live id provider .

  • (Optional: you may be required to pass Microsoft certification for a prod environment)

You can also have a look to Wictor visual guide on the matter.

  • Thanks for your reply. but the problem is i am not able to follow Wictor visual guide. Because it asks for domain name, i just working in intranet region....
