Over 40 recipes to master claims-based identity and access control in .NET applications using Windows Identity Foundation, Active Directory Federation Services, and AppFabric Access Control Services
- Gain a firm understanding of Microsoft’s Identity and Access Control paradigm with real world scenarios and hands-on solutions.
- Apply your existing .NET skills to build claims-enabled applications.
- Includes step-by-step recipes on easy-to-implement examples and practical advice on real world scenarios.
Implementing security as a cross-cutting concern has several challenges. Consequently, modern software development practices and Service Oriented Architectures are alluding to the idea of claims-based Identity for access control. Microsoft’s Identity and Access Control paradigm leverages industry standard open specifications and provides tools, runtime and platform support for facilitating the development of claims-enabled applications.
Microsoft Windows Identity Foundation Cookbook explores real world scenarios on building claims-enabled .NET applications using Microsoft Windows Identity Foundation (WIF), Active Directory Federation Services 2.0 (AD FS 2.0) and Windows Azure Access Control Services (ACS).
This book covers all aspects of several real world challenges that professional developers face while enabling support for claims-based identity across interoperable platforms and building claims-enabled applications. The book then goes on to explore AD FS 2.0 and provides step-by-step details on how claims support is enabled in Microsoft’s server technologies.
The book starts by introducing you to the world of claims-based identity in .NET Framework 4.0. It then moves on to showcase the capabilities of the runtime and the associated SDK including the steps to perform identity delegation in ASP.NET MVC 3 applications, create WCF security token services, extend the runtime to provide support for SAML 2.0 specifications and use AppFabric as a trusted source for implementing access control. Further, the book explores AD FS 2.0 and features recipes showcasing steps to configure claims in Microsoft’s server technologies. It also features a chapter on some of the newer capabilities of the runtime including providing support for claims in Windows Workflow Foundation and Windows 8 Metro applications.
Windows Identity Foundation Cookbook provides a mix of recipes from basic to advanced to enable professional developers to implement claims-based identity in enterprise-wide scalable and interoperable applications.
