Who This Book Is For
This book gives you enough information to evaluate claims-based identity as a possible option when you’re planning a new application or making changes to an existing one. It is intended for any architect, developer, or information technology (IT) professional who designs, builds, or operates web applications and services that require identity information about their users. Although applications that use claims based identity exist on many platforms, this book is written for people who work with Windows-based systems. You should be familiar with the Microsoft .NET Framework, ASP.NET, Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), Microsoft Active Directory® directory service, and Microsoft Visual C#® development system.
Why This Book Is Pertinent Now
Although claims-based identity has been possible for quite a while, there are now tools available that make it much easier for developers of Windows-based applications to implement it. These tools include the Windows Identity Foundation (WIF) and Microsoft Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) 2.0. This book shows you when and how to use these tools in the context of some commonly occurring scenarios.
With all that was released today, something like this could be easily overlooked, yet claims based identify and access control is only going to become more important as time goes on...
