Well according to the appendices, when Galdalf entered Dol Guldur and encountered a mad Thrain and was given the key and the map, he also figured out the Necromancer was Sauron. He then talked to the White Council and urged an attack on Dol Guldur, but Saruman shot that down as he himself had begun searching for the One ring. This was roughly 90 years before Bilbo's adventure. It is only at the time of Bilbo's adventure that Saruman relents and the White Council attacks Dol Guldur and forces Sauron to flee back to Mordor.


Now obviously things have changed in the film adaptation. We are unsure where or when Gandalf met Thrain to get the map and the key. We do know that at the time of Bilbo's adventure Gandalf does not know the Necromancer's true identity, but suspects great evil in Dol Guldur, based on what he says in the White Council meeting. We know Galadriel charges Gandalf with "solving the riddle of the Morgul blade."


So the assumption can be made that at some point Gandalf will go to Dol Guldur, and though it is 90 years later than in the book he will discover the identity of the Necromancer. Which will in turn lead to the White Council's assault on Dol Guldur and Sauron's spirit fleeing. Somewhere in all of that, they will give you your explanation of who Sauron is. Probably in a scene where Gandalf says "I just got back from Dol Guldur and Sauron is living there!"
