I am currently writing a WPF application to push files to a production server when the user clicks on "Push Files" button. My issue is that the user themselves should not be given permission directly to the folder on the destination server as that
is handled by the application. Also, because the application is local this means that the user's Windows authentication runs the app so those are the credentials that the application uses when pushing the files.
In an ASP.NET implementation, the IS virtual directory or website could be set up to use alternate login credentials such as a predefined login other than the user's login, which has access to push the files to the destination server so that would
work, but I have already designed the application in WPF. I am a WPF newbie and this is a small application so it was a great candidate for my learning curve.
Is there some way that I can securely push the files through the application as a different user, or maybe I should be using a different method of authentication for this job.
The application is an XBAP application.
Hope someone has some input for me because, even though this is a small application, I would not like to go back to doing this in ASP.NET now that I have a great *otherwise* working application.
