Stay Alert: Use Managed Code To Generate A Secure Audit Trail

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

In today's security-conscious environments, a reliable audit trail is a valuable forensic tool The Windows Server 2003 operating system provides features that let you enable a wide range of applications to make use of auditing functionality. This article looks at auditing from the operating system perspective and describes a sample managed code implementation that will allow you to add auditing to your own server applications.

Security: Manipulate Privileges in Managed Code Reliably, Securely, and Efficiently


When the author was faced with implementing support for changing a security descriptor on an object, he noticed there was not support for that operation in .NET. So he devised two solutions to the problem: the first, simpler one, is tailored to the .NET Framework 1.1 and can be used today. The second solution incorporates several advanced features available only in the .NET Framework 2.0. Both are presented here.

Smart Tags: Realize the Potential of Office 2003 by Creating Smart Tags in Managed Code


While you may well be excited about the prospect of building managed smart tags, there is little information available to help you create them using .NET. In this article the author fills in the blanks. Along the way he discusses the Microsoft Office Smart Tag List XML schema, advanced managed smart tags for Office 2003 and Office XP, and deploying these features in an organization.

Memory Lane: Rediscover the Lost Art of Memory Optimization in Your Managed Code


Managed applications rely on the garbage collector in the .NET Framework to allocate and clean up memory. The little CPU time spent performing garbage collection (GC) is usually a fair trade-off for not having to worry about memory management. But for applications in which CPU time and memory are precious resources, minimizing the time spent garbage collecting can greatly improve application performance and robustness. Find out how to manage memory all over again.

.NET Internals: Examine Running Processes Using Both Managed and Unmanaged Code


There are plenty of times when you need to get information on running processes, not the least of which is during performance tuning. Using the techniques in this article and special .NET classes you'll see how to get a process' ID, name, priority, number of threads, kernel handle, and memory consumption, as well as its user-mode, kernel-mode, and total elapsed running time and put them to use in a custom app called AssemblyBrowser.

DCOM Interop: Generate Custom Managed C++ Wrappers for Easier COM Interoperation Using DCOMSuds


Now that you're writing managed code, you'll certainly want to use your existing COM components, but you can't simply call them directly. Instead, you have to wrap the COM component in a runtime-callable wrapper that acts as a proxy between the component and your managed code. While the CLR provides wrapper classes for this purpose, there will be times when you'll want custom objects to wrap your COM components. One way to get the low-level access you need to precisely control resource cleanup, pass security information, and get access to CLR features is to write your own wrapper class in managed C++. This article shows you how.

CLR Debugging: Improve Your Understanding of .NET Internals by Building a Debugger for Managed Code


With the release of .NET, the Microsoft scripting strategy has evolved. Script engines can now compile or interpret code for the Microsoft common language runtime (CLR) instead of integrating debugging capabilities directly into apps through Active Scripting. With that change comes a new set of published services for including debugging functionality in a custom host application. You'll see how to use the debugging services published in the .NET Framework to create a full-featured CLR debugger that allows you to set breakpoints, view call stacks, browse variables, view processes, enumerate threads, and perform other important debugging tasks.

WMI and .NET: System.Management Lets You Take Advantage of WMI APIs within Managed Code


Visual Studio .NET and the Microsoft .NET Framework SDK provide a new set of APIs and tools that let you consume Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) data and events from managed .NET applications. After presenting an overview of what's new for WMI in the .NET Framework and the Visual Studio .NET environment, the author provides an in-depth exploration of the Management Extensions in Visual Studio .NET for Server Explorer. These extensions help you develop management-aware software and come in handy in a variety of distributed application development scenarios.
