There is a new hands-on lab for Web Services Enhancements 2.0: Learn how to secure Web services without writing code. Sample code is provided for both C# and VB.NET, so it should fit almost everyone.

Using WSE 2.0? Get SP2. Dont't know what WSE is? Here is a quick overview from the download page:

WSE 2.0 SP2 simplifies the development and deployment of secure Web services by enabling developers and administrators to more easily apply security policies on Web services running on the .NET Framework. Using WSE, Web services communication can be signed and encrypted using Kerberos tickets, X.509 certificates, username/password credentials, and other custom binary and XML-based security tokens. In addition, an enhanced security model provides a policy-driven foundation for securing Web services across trust domains. WSE also supports the ability to establish a trust-issuing service for retrieval and validation of security tokens, as well as the ability to establish more efficient long-running secure communication via secure conversations.

Ok, I was convinced to release my current development bits to the general public for public criticism. A PDF document accompanies the download. Make sure you read that first before installing, because installation is rough to say the least (developer friendly, but not end user compatible). But judge for yourself.

Now for the more interesting part: source code is included! This nice registry editor is open source, licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL). I hope that it can serve for more than just a bad example of how not to do things on a Smartphone ;-). Count on me for documenting the pitfalls and stumbling blocks that I magically wasn't able to avoid.

So without further ado, here is the download. If you want to read up on the history of the project, simply dig into the Smartphone / PPC category of this blog.

TheServerSide.NET has a nice satire online: Top 10 Things to Be Thankful for in .NET (Flash link). My favorite is "6. Object Orientation in VB.NET - For showing VB6 Developers that what they were doing before wasn't OO. Not even close."

Apress has a section titled Alpha and Beta Books. There you can read "first drafts" (alpha) as well as "shipping real soon now" (beta) chapters of upcoming book releases. You will find a wide range of book topics on the aforementioned page. Currently interesting to us in the .NET camp are the chapters for the Test Driven Development (TDD) book.

In case this weekend turns out to be too long for you (and you get bored without a real .NET challenge), check out the CodeDOM MSIL Code Provider and the CodeDOM Subset Code Provider. The more interesting bits from the download description:

The Microsoft Intermediate Language (MSIL) code provider takes a CodeDom tree and generates MSIL syntax. MSIL code provider generates all the CodeDom elements that are part of the 1.1 conformance spec. MSIL code provider generates code for most of the CodeDom types that shipped in V1.1. Why emit C# when you can emit IL!

The CodeDom Subset Code provider consumes CodeDom trees in the way the C# code provider does, but whenever a node that does not fall into the subset is encountered, it emits a #error in the generated code. This will alert to the CodeDom tree builder of any place in their code where they don't meet subset conformance. Roll your own subset of the C# language - anyone interested?

I admit it: I'm too easily excited and tend to install about any kind of Beta that I get my hands on on my machines. That's how the WUS trial found its way on the domain controller, and aside from the disk space requirements that initially bit me, it is smooth sailing so far. Of course, I didn't put all machines "on the line":

Doing it via AD and a group policy also enables you to set the various options rather easily from one single central location:

What's that got to do with .NET development? Easy: I have tons of VPC images, and it is rather too easy (and dangerous) to forget to patch one of those. Now everything is taken care of automatically without wasting Internet bandwidth.

From the abstract: Seth Fogie presents the latest in our series of security audio sessions. Mr Fogie discusses all the major security issues that are affecting Windows Mobile Pocket PC devices. Some of the topics covered include:

  • Worms, trojans and backdoors
  • Insecurities in wireless connectivity
  • Denial of Service attacks
  • Specific problems (ActiveSync, autorun SD/CF cards, buffer overflows)
  • PDA device as an attack platform
  • Tips on securing your PDAs.

The audio session is 13:58 minutes long (Flash required).

Benjamin Armstrong (aka Virtual PC Guy) posted a computer migration strategy using Virtual PC. Now that is kinda cool to be able to migrate the entire old computer into a virtual machine.
