Security measures in WCF RIA, The Precautions! - by @Neelesh___
Not too long ago, I received a letter from a friend of mine (well, I do expect love letters, but my expectations remain expectations). By the way, in that letter of his, he wrote about how his Facebook's password got hacked, the person who did this, abused his girlfriend a lot, she therefore broke up with him and now that poor fellow is single. Thus it is proved again, why security is so important, well it can actually make you single. Between server to client, data traverses through channels, these channels might be secure, or might be so dramatically insecure that your data can literally be read if not encrypted. Silverlight is a client side technology, that means you need to send data, a lot of it in fact, from server to client. While doing this, data will have to travel through a rather not so secure route, if the data contains sensitive information like passwords, hash codes etc., it might cause critical damage to the application of yours. WCF RIA services, a technology based on WCF’s architecture provide solution. We’ll shortly see how can this be implemented. But for now, let’s take a quick look on how WCF RIA can be linked with silverlight. I’ll be tutorializing the overall process in a series that I’ve already planned, but right now I’ll be showing a glimpse of how can it actually be done, in short.
