Just a reminder that I’ll be speaking at the Twin Cities WCF User Group next Wednesday (March 7, 0212) at 12:00 PM. The topic for this session is Securing WCF Services with the Windows Azure Access Control Service. Here’s the abstract:
Integrating your WCF services with third-party authentication and identity management systems can be a daunting task. Some of the common challenges associated with this task include:
- Configuring WCF bindings to request a token from ACS
- Validating the incoming token issued by the identity provider
- Parsing the incoming token
- Implementing authorization checks
- Transforming tokens by adding, removing, or changing the claims types and values
- Using configuration rather than code to accomplish all of the above
In this session we’ll look at how to use the Windows Azure Access Control Service (ACS) to tackle these challenges. We’ll start by covering the basics of identity management and ACS. From there we’ll look at how to secure WCF services via ACS using the following methods:
- WCF Username Authentication
- WCF Certificate Authentication
- WCF Federated Authentication with AD FS 2.0
