  • Blog Post: Windows Identity Foundation Tools for Visual Studio 2012 RC

    They’re out, folks. Few minutes ago Marc flipped the switch on the refresh of the WIF tools for the RC of Visual Studio 2012 .

  • Blog Post: A Digression on ACS and Rules

    As you know, ACS offers a simple-yet-powerful rule engine which you can use for processing incoming claims and keep out of your application a considerable chunk of logic: claims set normalization, occasional policy decision point, and so on. The primitive there is the claim mapping rule: if an incoming...

  • Blog Post: Attention ASP.NET Developers: SAML-P Comes to WIF

    If I’d have a dollar for every time a customer or partner asked me if they could use WIF for consuming the SAML2.0 protocol… ok, I would not exactly buy a villa a Portofino, but let’s just say that this is one of the most requested features since WIF came out.
