patterns & practices WCF Security Guidance: Updated Application Scenarios

  • Comments 9

For this week's release in our patterns & practices WCF Security Guidance project, we added new sections to our WCF Security Application Scenarios.  We added sections for analysis, code and configuration examples.  The analysis section explains the rationale behind some of the decisions. 

The idea behind the application scenarios is to show you a before and after look of end-to-end solutions.  Rather than a single solution, we give you a set of solutions to pick from.  The main parameters that vary in each solution include: Intranet vs. Internet, ASP.NET client vs. Windows Forms clients, TCP vs. HTTP, impersonation/delegation vs. trusted subsystem, and AD (domain credentials) vs. a custom user store.

Intranet

Internet

Note that if there's enough interest and time, we'll add a scenario that shows accessing an existing custom user store (i.e. you aren't using Membership.)

  • This is really awesome content. I had struggled to find how to do make my WCF services secure by taking an approach similar to using  <authorization/> element in web.config in asmx. Please keep more sample scenarios coming.

    Thanks.

  • So. How much interest do you really need for providing an internet - winforms client calling wcf using message security (custom user store) scenario? Please count my vote as a "yes please make the time." Maybe something that uses an STS to obtain an SCT for use with multiple services would be nice too.

    PS - thanks for all the stuff you've already provided, it really is a big help.

  • @Kris - great to hear -- we'll have more prescriptive guidance on the way.

    @Mike - your vote helped us reach the tipping point.  We're taking on the custom user store scenario.
