A Security Token Service, or STS, acts as a security gateway to authenticate callers and issue security tokens carrying claims that describe the caller. See how you can build a custom STS with the "Geneva" Framework.

Unlike role-based security measures, code access security is not based on user identity. Instead, it is based on the identity of the code that is running, including information such as where the code came from. Here Mike Downen discusses the role of code access security (CAS) in .NET and outlines some key new features and changes in CAS for the .NET Framework 2.0.

As I write this column, version 2. 0 of the MicrosoftÃÂ® . NET Framework is at Beta 1. When I got my bits, I hacked together a little program to dump all of the public members of all public types in the entire Framework and ran it on version 1.

With the much-anticipated release of the .NET Framework 1.1, developers are eager to know what's been added to their programming bag of tricks. In this article, the author focuses on new developments in Windows Forms, such as namespace additions, support for hosting managed controls in unmanaged clients, and designer support for C++ and J#. Integrated access to the Compact Framework and new mobile code security settings also make this release noteworthy. Along with these features, the author reviews the best ways to handle multiple versions of the common language runtime and highlights some potential pitfalls.

The .NET Framework includes a set of cryptographic services that extend the services provided by Windows through the Crypto API. In this article, the author explores the System.Security.Cryptography namespace and the programming model used to apply cryptographic transformations. He discusses reasons why cryptography is easier in .NET than it was before, including the easy programmatic acccess developers have to the cryptography APIs and the difference between symmetric and asymmetric algorithms. Along the way, a brief discussion of the most widely used algorithms, including RSA, DSA, Rijndael, SHA, and other hash algorithms, is provided.

I want to ask some questions that i doubt.
Now currently, our project using active directory on vb.net 1.1 and server 2003. We will be upgrade to vb.net 3.5 and server 2008.
In this case, 1. We convert all vb.net 1.1 application to vb.net 3.5 and run on server 2003.
Then later on, 2. Our server will upgrade to server 2003 to server 2008.
I would linke to know after doing above two phase will effect on Active Directory code setting in our program.
Can I conver to 1 to 1 withut changing anything in vb.net and server?
I'm developing an application using .Net Framework 2.0...
In my application, I require to create a file to in C:\Windows folder and need to store some settings in registry (Read/Write Registry Both Operations)
I'm an administrator user but still I don't have rights to create folder from the application. Application throws "Access Denied" exception while creating a file/write data in registry. I only have rights to read file/read registry data.
My application works perfectly when I run that application as an administrator.
But every time end user can't run my application as an administrator.
So my problem is :
Is there a problem with windows 7 or .net framework has feature to bypass this security check and allow my application to create file/write data to registry.
I surf an internet a lot... but I didn't get proper solution...
This my permission dialog of HKEY_LOCALMACHINE Folder
You can see administrator has full permission..But I don't have...
We have a web service that runs fine on our Windows Server 2008 R2 test system.
However, it does not work on a production machine at a customer site.
It is installed using:
This makes us suspect security settings on the machine. Enabling trace logs on the ODBC Manager shows no errors. The Windows Event Viewer doesn't indicate any problems.
Can anyone suggest what is wrong? Is there a tool we can use to discover the source of the problems.
