    According to recent traffic studies, the BitTorrent protocol is now responsible for roughly half of all Internet traffic. That's a lot of sharing of personal photos, self-sung songs, and home videos. Half! Next to text messaging, Instant Messaging applications...

    Didn't I write that I wanted to blog more this year? It's June, you see what came out of that. First things, first; I'm flying to Orlando tomorrow for TechEd. Looking back at what my conference schedule looked like up until 2 years ago, it's hard to...

    What is a Token?

    • 1 Comments
    Earlier today I hopefully gave a somewhat reasonable, simple answer to the question " What is a Claim? " Let's try the same with "Token": In the WS-* security world, "Token" is really just a another name the security geniuses decided to use for "Handy...

    What is a Claim?

    • 1 Comments
    If you ask any search engine "What is a Claim?" and you mean the sort of claim used in the WS-* security space, you'll likely find an answer somewhere, but that answer is just as likely buried in a sea of complex terminology that is only really comprehensible...

    Good Morning. It's 2008 and I have a new job.

    • 3 Comments
    2007 I've posted some 30 entries on my blog. That's what some of the "Whoa, listen to me, I am so awesome!" blogging crowd of today typically does in a day or two. 2008 promises to be so interesting that it would be a shame not to be blogging, and hence...

    Sin, Sin, Sin: How to do Simple, Webby, and Completely Insecure ASP.NET Membership Authentication and Role Authorization with WCF

    We're all sinners. Lots of the authentication mechanisms on the Web are not even "best effort", but rather just cleartext transmissions of usernames and passwords that are easily intercepted and not secure at all. We're security sinners by using them...

    TweetieBot - A BizTalk Services Experiment

    Having an Internet Service Bus up in the cloud is not very entertaining unless there are services in the bus. Therefore, I built one (and already showed some of the code basics ) that’s hopefully fun to play with and will soon share the first version...

    After roughly 15 months of working for the firm I've got to say that while it was fun talking about the .NET Framework and BizTalk at conferences and in writing, it's quite a bit more fun to be part of building the .NET Framework and BizTalk. You could...

    We love WS-* as much as we do love Web-Style services. I say "Web-style", full knowing that the buzzterm is REST. Since REST is an architectural style and not an implementation technology, it makes sense to make a distinction and, also, claiming complete...
