I see that SQL Server 2008 R2 Reporting Services now supports
Claims Based Authentication in Sharepoint 2010, meaning that end users can authenticate with Sharepoint using Claims Based Authentication, and use the same security tokens to connect through to Reporting Services.
I assume that behind the scenes Sharepoint is using
Windows Identity Foundation (WIF - formerly codenamed "Geneva") to handle the authentication, and passing this on to Reporting Services.
I'm keen to use Windows Identity Foundation to authenticate with Reporting Services
without Sharepoint. We have an existing ASP.NET web application, and we'd like to call Reporting Services from that, passing on the Windows Identity Foundation credentials of the user logged into our web application.
I've done some work on setting up a custom security extension using Forms Authentication (based on the
sample), but am not sure how to proceed from there.
Google/Bing hasn't been helpful. Can you please point me to some guidance on how to set up Windows Identity Foundation authentication for Reporting Services?<
