Best practices warns about identity used for SecurityTokenServiceApplicationPool

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

On running the best practices analyzer for SharePoint 2010, it gives me a error about the SecurityTokenServiceApplicationPool:

Application pool 'SecurityTokenServiceApplicationPool' is set to run as an administrator, as local system, or to 'Act as part of the operating system'.

It is correct in that the Process Model -> Identity setting for this app pool is set to "LocalSystem". However, this is a new installation of SharePoint which was configured with the wizards and also with TFS server.

What should the identity of this app pool be set to, or is it best to ignore this?

Pass ASP.NET membership identity object across domain?


I am trying to figure a way to SSO with ASP.NET membership and role model.

I can implement custom membership provider which consume web services hosting on a server.

With encryption of data. No problem.

But my question is, If I sign on a website with my provider, got my identity object on that application,

could I pass it to another website on another domain which use the same provider and by doing so, do not need to login again?

If this is possible, I am going to implement this solution. Please tell me what's your take on this.
