Mastering WCF 4.5 security RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am trying to master WCF on VS 2013. I am struggling with WCF security. I like to setup a WCF service where users need to log in remotely (with WPF or Silverlight). The security data should be on a SQL database.

    I am familiar with the “old” membership API , the regsql tool  and the ASP configuration tool. But that seems all gone.

    Now days  we have a Claims based security, and I am already busy for several weeks trying  to master it! But it seems that the more I read and learn about it the more confusing it gets.

    I know there is a lot of information about claims based security on the internet, but I did not find a simple example how to put everything together (Database, WCF Configuration and  basic authorization code)

    Is there somebody that can point me a good and above all simple example?

  • Hi,

    According to your reqiurement, I knoew that you want to secure wcf with database and basic authentication.
    The main content of this article is as following:

    • How to setup the database and the Web Site Administration Tool from the .net framework for managing the Users and Roles

    • How to setup the WCF Basic Authentication under https and use SQL Memebership Provider to validate users and roles

    • How to make your WCF service consumable by other other platforms such as Java by making the WSDL a single file

    For more information, please try to refer to:
    #WCF Basic Authentication with SQL Membership Provider: .

    #Wcf Security: .
    And hope it can help you to get start.
