Share Cookie between two applications (ASP.net MVC4 and WCF service) RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1169136725 posted

    I am migrating one Backoffice and a WCF service to the cloud.

    To take full benefit of the cloud service and still have a compact and secure service I would like to share my Backoffice auth cookie (ASP.NET MVC 4 Using Identity) with my WCF Service.

    I can enum some of the problems I may face during this implementation:

    • The 2 apps are in different azure websites (requirement)
    • This is a multi tenant service (the authentication can never fail or redirect to a different user)

    Is there any way to apply this kind of approach with minimal impact in implementation time? Is that even possible?  If not do you have some kind of suggestion to authenticate the calls from my BO in the WCF Service?

    Thanks in advance
