New Book on WIF by Sandeep Chanda

Microsoft Windows Identity Foundation CookbookI am very proud to share the release of a brand new book on Windows Identity Foundation by my friend and Neudesic colleague Sandeep Chanda, “Microsoft Windows Identity Foundation Cookbook”

I had the privilege of being invited by Sandeep to write the foreword for the book and am honored at the opportunity to be associated with such a tremendous body of work.

At Neudesic, we strive to lead our teams and the customers we serve via a continuous feedback loop of best practices and guidance stemming from the collective experience of our consultants in the field over the last decade not only solving difficult software engineering problems through the application of technology, but bending the technology to deliver the desired business outcomes that our clients have partnered with us for.

Security is one of those topics that is bigger than any technology set or practice area. As such, the hard hitting, no-nonsense recipes in this book serve as pragmatic guidance for anyone contending with the myriad of forces at play in any modern software solution for which claims-based security is particularly well suited.

As I share in the foreword…

Careful to begin with easy to grasp fundamentals of claims-based security, Sandeep progresses through common WIF programming tasks using examples in ASP.NET and WCF familiar to most .NET developers while covering bleeding edge scenarios including new features exposed in Windows 8 and securing Windows Metro applications.

This book offers a combination of simple, intermediate and advanced scenarios, covering ADFS 2.0 and incorporating web identity providers such as Windows Live ID, Google, Yahoo!, and Facebook with the Azure Service Bus Access Control Service. Also covered are real-world scenarios you are likely to encounter for securing Microsoft SharePoint, SalesForce.com and Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

In addition to providing a hands-on, pragmatic reference that will be immediately valuable to your next project, this book is a reflection of Sandeep’s real-word experience successfully applying these concepts and techniques in the field, the value of which is worth the price of this book alone.

If you are serious about building claims/identity-aware services and applications on the .NET Framework and want to get started today, this book belongs in your library.
