    We’re gearing up for something that I think will be truly exciting – but I’m getting ahead of myself.  This is likely going to be a long series of posts, so let me start from the beginning. About a year or so ago, at the Raleigh Code Camp, I stumbled...

    Windows Azure Security Best Practices – Part 6: How Azure Services Extends Your App Security


    image[5][3][3]Several Windows Azure services help you extend your application security into the cloud.

    Three services can help you in providing identity mapping between various providers, connections between an on premises data center, and abilities for applications (where ever they reside) to send messages to each other:

    • With Windows Azure Active Directory you create single sign on application with the authentication brokered in an application residing in the cloud. Using Access Control Service feature, you can map identities from various providers to the claims that your application understands.
    • Windows Azure Connect uses industry-standard end-to-end IPSEC protocol to establish secure connections between on-premise machines and roles in the cloud. This allows you to connect to your cloud app as if it were inside the firewall.
    • With Service Bus you can use secure messaging and relay capabilities to enable your distributed and loosely-coupled applications.
