Claims on the Client…

…and fire in the sky ♫ Don’t you hate it when a technical blog devolves in what is for the most part a series of announcements? That’s kind of what happened to mine. The reality is that making the things which get announced here take an inordinate amount of time, and that every remaining moment…

Good Claims, Bad Claims 1: an Example

Ahh, claims. Aren’t they a thing of beauty? When you first discover them, you’d be tempted to use them for everything up to and including brewing coffee. Now that we finally have powerful tools at our disposal for actually developing claims-based systems, as opposed of just talking about it, it is time to go past…

An example of trusted subsystem fail in meatspace

Here I am, stuck in Sydney airport for various cascade delays but awarded with the Gift of Free WiFi. I am coming back from a awesome 2 weeks in Australia and Nw Zealand, where I met great customers & partners, enjoyed the company of amazing friends & colleagues and drew few chuckles (while hopefully passing…

Books: “Programming Windows Identity Foundation”, P&P claims guide & others

  Want to know why I spent one hour every day of my vacation practicing touch typing? Well, apart from the fact that it’s simply scandalous that after 20+ years spent on keyboards I still hunt & peck: in the next few months I’m going to need all the typing speed I can gather… I…

[VIDEO] Identity & Cloud Services

  As promised last week, here there’s the video of my other session at the Belgian TechDays. This session was part of the Architecture track, hence I took a mildly different, more abstract approach: I position Cloud computing as a trend (storytelling the famous parallel between last century’s electrification of the US and what may…

What goes into claims

2 weeks ago Donovan and I were at RSA, manning the Geneva booth: the interest about this technology is overwhelming, as well as the enthusiasm for the claims based approach. Now that there’s actually something to toy with, as opposed to hand-weave how beautiful a claims-flavoured world would be, I distinctly felt a change in…

One does not simply walk into Mordor, or Home Realm Discovery for the Internet

Interesting discussion going on on Chris’ blog about OpenID & usability. There are many aspects I’d like to discuss, but it’s 11:34pm and “tomorrow” I have a conference call at 7:00am (sometimes the fact that the Earth is round DOES suck: sorry, Cristoforo): hence I better pick carefully. Ah, did you read the disclaimer that…

Fun With Federation 1: ASP.NET, Geneva Framework & FedUtil.exe

I won’t make names, of course, but somebody in the Identirati community often insinuates that Vittorio is card-centric :-). Now, while I’ll admit that I do have a personal preference for the active case, I definitely refuse the notion that I’m just about cards: and just to make a point, I’ll write few posts about…

A visual tour of the .NET Access Control service, part 2: fun with scopes and issuers

Here we are again. I am just back from Belgium’s TechDays, and I can still savor the nice feeling you get from talking in front of a very interested audience 🙂 I’m really glad to see that both the cloud and claims based identity are enjoying the attention they deserve! I have been asked to…

Roles? Those are claiiiiiims!

[Warning: if you are not an identity geek, don’t read] People tend to approach new things by understanding how they relate with what they already know. That’s natural, and that’s also a very effective strategy: however it can only get you so far, and if you don’t start thinking out of the box/venture in uncharted…
