Calling a service without adding a reference in BizTalk 2006 and BizTalk 2006 R2
We’ve been experimenting with calling ASMX web services from orchestrations without having to add a web reference (for the SOAP adapter) or use the generated items (for the R2 WCF adapter). The idea, in short, is to achieve increased decoupling between systems even in a web service scenario - Generally when you add a reference to a service in BizTalk 2006 or in R2 (although there are some clear differences between the implementation) the schemas for the request and response types are generated for ......

Configuring the Geneva Framework based STS to work with custom UserNamePasswordValidator
It took me a little while (and quite a bit of help from others on this thread) to get to a relatively simple implementation, so I thought I’d summarise the steps I’ve taken – At the risk of sounding the obvious I would definitely recommend making sure the overall STS scenario works well using windows authentication before changing it to support custom authentication. Once that’s done change the STS’ bindings’ clientCredentialType to UserName and the establishSecurityContext to false. <ws2007HttpBinding> ......

From "Zermatt" to the "Geneva Framework" part II
A couple of days ago I've posted about the changes I've had to make to allow my custom STS to work with the updated Geneva framework. there's one more, quite crucial, change that I had to make, which I will try to describe next - If my understanding is correct (and unfortunately there's all the chances in the world that it is not, so if you know otherwise please do comment) the October Geneva SDK has tightened security a little bit around token validation. I believe that the previous version of SDK, ......

From "Zermatt" to the "Geneva Framework"
I have already mentioned that Zermatt has been renamed as the "Geneva Framework", which makes total sense. At PDC Microsoft have released a new download for the "Geneva Framework", which I have downloaded today to check some of my code against; While not at all an extensive list, here are the changes I had to do to my code to get it to work with the updated framework - On the STS: The SecureTokenService class, which is the base class for any STS implementation has moved to the main Microsoft.IdentityModel ......

Non-Optional Claims in the Geneva Framework
I'm currently doing some work with the Geneva Framework (formerly known as "Zermatt"), which I am very excited about; With the SOA wave and now the coming Cloud wave, federated identity becomes a crucial component in the enterprise and it is great to see such a good story for it from Microsoft. Using the "Zermatt" SDK (I now need to download the updated framework and align with it) I have succesfully, and quite simply, managed to create both an active STS scenario and a passive STS scenario, both ......
