Microsoft Windows Identity Foundation Cookbook – Book Review

Last week Packt Publications sent me copy of the book Microsoft Windows Identity Foundation Cookbook
and asked me if I can write a review. Book was a good read and wrote following review on Amazon.

“Implementing security is always been a concern and requires expertise to implement in the typical enterprise dealing with many technologies. Claims based Identity address the user authentication, authorization and single sign-on issue for an enterprise and B2B.

This book gives an insight and covers “how to implement” for common scenarios starting from ASP.Net, Windows Phone, iOS, ADFS, REST Services, SharePoint, MS CRM, Office 365, Windows Azure applications, Salesforce and Windows 8 Metro applications. A single book covering security dealing with many technologies is a challenge and author has explained and put together-well with the code.

I would recommend this book as a reference if you are implementing claims based identity or “wanna be” expert. ”
