This is not just a plain announcement of the revamped German MSDN Developer Center - Sicherheit, it also contains some back patting for myself, so be warned.

My part in this relaunch was to go over "Basiswissen: Know How für Einsteiger" (~ Security [1..4]01) and pull together useful content in the security area applicable to developers. The result? A mix of books (some of the very best information still is only available in dead tree rendition), online articles and more. Everything is nicely presented in a box in the middle of the page:

Grundlagen (Foundation), .NET Framework Sicherheit (.NET Fx Security), Web Services (I proposed "Web Services & Distributed Technologies"), ASP.NET and Kryptographie (cryptography, my pet peeve) are the sections that I contributed. Judging from a brief perusal, it seems that mostly only my content is in there. So Michael and Uwe will accept my apologies for me claiming those to be "my" sections.

As a long-time subscriber as well as regular reader of the Bugtraq mailing list, I saw Gregory's post on decrypting MSN Messenger passwords. Because that one really piqued my interest, I immediately headed over to infoGreG and grabbed the source code, put it into a VS.NET 2003 C++ project, fixed a couple of compiler switches, and et voila - it works as advertised!

I promised two things during today's webcast The build system of Visual Studio Team System: links to get started with MSBuild as well as the samples I presented. Let's get started with the easy part, the samples:

VS05BetaExperienceWebcastMSBuildSamples.zip

And here are some useful links for your start into MSBuild:

That's it. You might also want to check out my link list for last week's webcast, Profiling for Visual Studio 2005 Team Systems Beta Experience.

From the summary of this security practice: This module presents a set of consolidated practices designed to address ASP.NET version 2.0 security issues. The answers and recommendations presented in this module are tight distillations designed to supplement the companion modules and additional guidance. The practices are organized by various categories that represent those areas where mistakes are most often made.

Read about this article on Bruce Schneier's blog. Interesting and fun read, especially early in the morning. Assembler knowledge a plus, but not a requirement.

This was a longer-planned upgrade to our Subversion server that happened today: moving from the 1.1 series to 1.2.1. It went smoothly, especially because I played it safe by doing a dump / load cycle (more details to be found in Migrating a Repository) with all repositories. Safety wasn't the only concern: as detailed in the release notes, I also wanted to move the repositories to a FSFS back end, and take advantage of xdelta compression. I was mostly after server-side features, I don't see many of our devs use the optional locking...

Want to test your Web site with that other browser? You know, the one that ships with the operating system? Here is how to do that. Start by right-clicking on the page you want to open:

In the Browse With dialog box, you can now choose which browser to use this time only, or by clicking Set as Default, use it for all your future Ctrl+F5 endeavours:

Sometimes, it might be handy to not have VS.NET pick a dynamic port each and every time it starts Visual Web Developer Web Server (aka ASP.NET Development Server or, as it was called back in the old days, Cassini). There is an easy way to get a fixed port when you press Ctrl+F5. First step is to select the Web project in Solution Explorer:

Next, go to the Properties window (DO NOT right-click and choose Property Pages - you will end up somewhere entirely different):

As you can see, I already switched "Use dynamic ports" to False, and in this case, I chose to stick with the default provided port number. When is this port-setting useful? When you automate tests, for example.

Just minutes ago, I finished my Webcast on Profiling with Visual Studio Team System, which is one in a series of Webcasts for MSDN Connection Service: Visual Studio 2005 Team Systems Beta Experience (MSDN Deutschland). As promised, here is a list of links that prove to be invaluable when navigating the "bits":

That should get you started with profiling. Next week's topic is "The build system of Visual Studio Team System".

Go here, and download samples, slides, and for almost all sessions, actually watch it! Especially interesting might be this one here: WEB340 IIS7: Discover and Move to the Next Generation Web Application Server Platform.
