WSE Security: Protect Your Web Services Through The Extensible Policy Framework In WSE 3.0


This article describes the WSE policy framework, which allows you to describe constraints and requirements a Web service must enforce. Discussions include security scenarios in WSE 3.0 and extending the framework with custom constraints and requirements.

Intrusion Prevention: Build Security Into Your Web Services with WSE 2.0 and ISA Server 2004


Once you've addressed security in your code, it's time to look at the environment it runs in. Firewalls stop unauthorized traffic from getting into your network, and smart Web service-specific firewalls, like the one that comes with Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2004, bring XML intrusion prevention to your system for that added layer of safety.

WS-Security: New Technologies Help You Make Your Web Services More Secure


Without good security, Web Services will never reach their potential. WS-Security and its associated technologies, the focus of this article, represent the future of security for Web Services. Provided here is an overview of these emerging security standards that explains what they do, how they work, and how they get along together. Topics discussed include integrity and confidentiality and how these are provided by public key cryptography, WS-Security, and more. Some of the key components of WS-Security, such as the wsu namespace, are also covered.

Security in IIS 6.0: Innovations in Internet Information Services Let You Tightly Guard Secure Data


Security improvements have been a top priority in the evolution of IIS. IIS 6.0, which will be part of Windows .NET Server, has improved security features and a new approach to server configuration. New security-related tools for IIS, including IIS LockDown, make securing your server against attack easier than ever. The author explains how and why you can shut down services with IIS LockDown. He discusses limiting port access with TCP/IP filtering, controlling how files are served with extension mapping, what's new for Secure Sockets Layer, the use of URLScan, and more.

Possible security issue with .NET framework and web services


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:

  • WISE installer 32 bit
  • .NET 2.0 Framework
  • Machine has UAC disabled

Some observations:

  • Communication between client and server seems to work fine
  • Can't write to c:\ProgramData
  • Can't connect to database using ODBC connector.
  • Can't log messages to the Windows Event Log (we get an exception that we don't have privileges)

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.

Web Services & invalid security certificate

I am trying to use the Sharepoint List Web Service and VS 2008 to read data from an Access database, create an XML document/element from the information in that database, and then use the XML to update a SP List.  However, our Development server has an invalid security certificate (to save money).  It appears that I can connect successfully to the Web Service (because I can add the Web reference to the project) but I get a connection error when I actually try to update the list.  (This article describes what needs to be done to fix my problem http://support.microsoft.com/kb/915599 but getting a valid security cert just isn't in the cards for this environment.)  The procedure worked correctly on a SP server that was hosted outside our company with a different validation method, i.e. not Active Directory.  We are using SP MOSS 2007.  Thanks for any ideas you can give me. 

Web Services - Security questions


every one who is working on web services please let me know the answers to following questions I have about
web service security.

1. Which one is best authentication for web services (forms authentication or windows authentication)

2. Is it necessary to implement security for intranet web services?

3. If web service exposing multiple web methods, should we authenticate every time client calls a method
or any other way?

4. How to implement message level security?

Problems on WF4 Services, Security and Large Objects



I have a big problem on using WF4 service. There are several questions I cannot find the answer yet.
Hope that anyone can share their experience to me on solving the following problems.

1. How to change the configuration for each WF4 services ?
    I have created several workflow services and once they build, I can find the service by adding a service reference on the client side.
    However, I need to pass a large object such as image or movie like >20MB file to the WF4 service.
    But I cannot find any configuration on the web.config file on the server side that allow me to change the settings like maxArrayLength,
    maxBufferPoolSize ... 

    For these large objects, is that using streaming mode is the best practice? 
    Actually, where can I find those configuration settings for a xamlx file ?
    And, how can I configure the WF4 service to use Streaming transfer mode on server side?
    In addition, I need to verify the user's identification inside the workflow rather than let them pass in a username and password
    for security reasons. If I need to do so, I might need to

Installing and Uninstalling Services

Installing and Uninstalling Services.Unlike most projects you create in Visual Studio .NET, Windows Service projects cannot be run directly from the development environment by pressing F5. This is because the service in the project must be installed before the project can run.

You can quickly install your service application by using a command line utility called InstallUtil.exe.

SharePoint Tutorial - Security

Security in SharePoint is comprised of users, groups and roles.

Users, Groups and Roles

A user account comes from the authentication system. For example, if Active Directory is used to authenticate then the user accounts will come from it.

There are two types of groups SharePoint uses: domain groups and SharePoint groups.

Getting Started with Windows SharePoint Services

Of all of the capabilities of SharePoint, I thought I would start with the most basic installation - as a corporate intranet. It is likely that we will need to discuss some of the elements of SharePoint as we go along, so this also gives us the opportunity to review these elements for future reference.

Before going into too much detail, I would like to point out that you can try the core SharePoint framework (known as Windows SharePoint Services or WSS) for free. On Microsoft's Web site you can download a trial version of Virtual PC 2004 (VPC). Using VPC, you can install the Windows 2003 Evaluation Kit and the WSS add-on. This combination will give you 45 days to evaluate the setup.

Building a Searchable Phone Directory with Windows SharePoint Services

I want to continue to build out the intranet site we've started in our previous articles. A standard item in every intranet is a staff/employee list. Most companies implementing Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) are large enough to have a database that contains all employees. We will use the aggregation features of SharePoint to include data from this database into our intranet.

Building a 3-Tier App with Silverlight 3, .NET RIA Services, and Azure Table Storage

Silverlight 3, .NET RIA Services, and Windows Azure Services Platform makes a 3-tier Cloud application easier to build: Silverlight 3 as presentation tier, .NET RIA services as the business logic and data access tier, and Windows Azure Table as the data storage tier. The sample application in this article demonstrates the architecture with a simple Survey application with all these technologies working together from Windows Azure.
