Release Notes

WF Security Pack CTP 1

The Microsoft WF Security Pack CTP 1 is the first community technology preview (CTP) release of a set of activities and their implementation based on Windows Workflow Foundation in .NET Framework 4 (WF 4) and the Windows Identity Foundation (WIF).

The Microsoft WF Security Pack CTP 1 contains both activities and their designers which illustrate how to easily enable various security-related scenarios using workflow, including:
  • Impersonating a client identity in the workflow.
  • In-workflow authorization, such as PrincipalPermission and validation of Claims.
  • Authenticated messaging using ClientCredentials specified in the workflow, such as username/password or a token retrieved from a Security Token Service (STS).
  • Flowing a client security token to a back-end service (claims-based delegation) using WS-Trust ActAs.

This is not a supported release and is intended to solicit feedback on this implementation for consideration in future releases. Please note that the Client Profile of the .NET Framework 4 is not sufficient since it does not satisfy the requirements for the Windows Identity Foundation (WIF).

I was searching for it! Just a query: why TokenFlowScope activity doesn't show its body in an hosted designer outside from VisualStudio (I'm using WorkflowStudio)?

Thank you folks... This is an absolute necessity for real-world WF solutions.

Wish I could give it 4.5...it's better than good and fills a gap that makes building secure services with WF that much more compelling.
