New Releases from Microsoft Press

A Guide to Claims-Based Identity and Access Control
by Dominick Baier, Vittorio Bertocci, Keith Brown, Matias Woloski, Eugenio Pace
Request review copy

Claims-based identity means to control the digital experience and to use digital resources based on things that are said by one party about another. A party can be a person, organization, government, Web site, Web service, or even a device. The very simplest example of a claim is something that a party says about itself. Claims-based identity has been possible for quite a while, but there are now tools available that make it much easier for developers of Windows-based applications to implement it. These tools include the Windows Identity Foundation (WIF) and Microsoft Active Directory® Federation Services (ADFS) v2. This book shows you when and how to use these tools in the context of some commonly occurring scenarios.


Programming Microsoft® ASP.NET MVC
by Dino Esposito
Request review copy

Delve into the features, principles, and pillars of the ASP.NET MVC framework—deftly guided by Web development luminary Dino Esposito. ASP.NET MVC forces developers to think in terms of distinct components—model, view, controller—that make it easier to manage application complexity. Plunge into the framework's internal mechanics and gain a practical, what-why-how perspective behind each ASP.NET MVC building block. You'll understand how and when to use this programming model as an alternative to Web Forms-to gain full control of HTML, simplify testing and extensibility, and design better Web sites and experiences. As always, Esposito provides the detailed, insightful guidance and illustrative code samples you need to get productive quickly.
