Market_Desc: This book is intended for developers who already have a solid understanding of ASP.NET 1.1 security concepts in the area of forms authentication, page security, and website authorization. Where the book addresses new functionality, such as Membership and Role Manager, it assumes readers have already used these features and have a good understanding of the general functionality provided by both of them. As a result, this book does not rehash widely available public information on various features or API reference documentation. However, this edition does add a jumpstart review chapter to help readers refresh what they should already know about ASP.NET Security.
Special Features: · Recommended by Scott Guthrie, ASP.NET creator who said I highly recommend buying a copy of Stefan Schackow's excellent ASP.NET 2.0 Security, Membership, and Role Management book. Stefan is a key member of the ASP.NET team, and owned and designed the security features in the ASP.NET 2.0 release. As such, he really, really, really knows what he is writing about. · The only ASP.NET security book on developing for the membership and role provider· This edition educates readers on new security developments related to ASP.NET AJAX and running on IIS 7· This edition adds code examples in VB in addition to the existing C# examples· For readers who might be rusty on their prerequisite ASP.NET security, this edition adds a quick jumpstart chapter to serve readers as a review for any ASP.NET security they might have forgotten
About The Book: The book opens with an introductory chapter on the new Internet Information Services 7.0 (IIS 7.0). The chapter highlights the new features of IIS 7.0 including new major components, modules, and operation modes. The book then focuses on the new IIS 7.0 and ASP.NET integration mode and covers the security context of a request from the moment it enters IIS 7.0, operating in integrated mode, until a response is generated by ASP.NET runtime and served back to the requester.
