There is a great article in MSDN Magazine this month by Michele Bustamante on using WIF to implement claims-based security in WCF Services: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/ee335707.aspx.
It’s gets to the right level of detail to make it crystal clear. Spend all weekend reading the docs, or spend an hour with Michele’s article? Hmmm… easy choice!
