This screencast shows how AppFabric Access Control
(AC) can be used to provide identity
federation, trust delegation, service authorization and integration with Active
Directory Federation Services
(ADFS), to control access to services based on
In the demo, Fabrikam Jets uses the
, AC and ADFS to grant employees of Contoso Marketing access to
Microsoft Codename "Dallas"
at Fabrikam's expense, using Windows authentication, without exposing Fabrikam's Dallas account keys. It also shows how Fabrikam can revoke the privilege later.
The source code for this example is now available soon on
this MSDN Code Gallery page
Note: The example has been updated to work with the V1 version of AppFabric Access Control. There were two changes from the CTP version to V1 that made the update necessary: 1) V1 uses version 0.9 of the WRAP protocol, instead of version 0.8, and 2) the
issuer name generated by V1 is the base URI of the STS endpoint for the service namespace, instead of the full URI.
The screen cast has not yet been updated, and still shows the user providing the full URI of the STS endpoint as the key description, rather than the base URI. In all other respects, however, it remains accurate.
