Using the new System.IdentityModel namespace on .NET 4.5, you can not only validate claims but also transform IPrincipal that will then be used throughout the application. In this video excerpt from Dominick Baier’s new course Introduction to Identity and Access Control in .NET 4.5 he shows you exactly how easy it is to do this with the new APIs. In the full course he also covers topics like ClaimsIdentity, Security Token Services, and role based access control.
Dominick works as an associate consultant for the Germany-based company thinktecture (http://www.thinktecture.com). His main area of focus is security in general and identity & access control in particular. He helps customers around the world implementing claims-based identity, single sign-on, authorization and federation in their web applications, services and APIs. Dominick is an international conference speaker and the author of “Developing more-secure ASP.NET Application” and co-author of the Microsoft Patterns & Practices “Guide to Claims-based Identity and Access Control”.
