Security is crucial for online applications. This session on security discusses the basics of web security and then the internals of authentication in Microsoft's OWIN framework called Katana. We will see how the new cookie authentication middleware manages user authentication and supports rich identity information using claims. We will then see how ASP.NET (both MVC and WebForms) integrates with this new security framework by examining the code generated from Visual Studio 2013's new ASP.NET project templates.

You will learn:

  • Clear understanding of the right way to secure authentication for web applications
  • Clear understanding of how Microsoft's cookie middleware implements authentication for web applications
  • Clear understanding how to how use Microsoft's cookie middleware in ASP.NET web application code
