SD Times mentions VSTO security


There’s an article about VSTO at SD Times. One of the things they point out is that VSTO is the first Microsoft developer product that really enforces a strong security policy, and that this is the way of the future (think Longhorn). The author also likes the network-based deployment model, although I would caution against using URI evidence if you can go with something stronger (like x.509).

Update 19/1/2004:

The article mentions that VSTO retails for $499, but fails to mention that this prices includes VB, SQL Developer, and the Access Runtime. There is also a $199 upgrade available if you already own VS or an older Office development product. See the “How to buy” page for more info.
