New and Improved Security in the .NET Framework 2.0


To add to our other lists of “What’s New in Whidbey Security”, Rudolph Araujo and Shanit Gupta have a nice roundup of new security features posted on the Microsoft .NET Framework Developer Center.  They’ve got them categorized, summarized, and provide links for more details.  Seems like this is a good candidate for a bookmark for the next time you’re wondering how that new feature works — or even if that new feature exists 🙂

    My company has produced a white paper on changes to security in .Net Framework 2.0

    It’s mainly aimed at trying to entice those who are still working with VB 6.0/ASP to move to .Net.

    Some of the ideas have been used in a large enterprise level project at Microsoft TVP in the UK. I gave a talk at the recent Developer Developer Developer day on this paper.

    The site is:
