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).
