.net - Authenticating A Mobile App Against A WCF Service?

Jun 4, 2010

We are working with a vendor to develop a mobile app and plan on using WCF services to handle operations. What are some types of authentication I can use with a WCF service? Would we send a user name and password through the SOAP header? How can we accomplish this securely?

Also, this will be authenticated against our .NET membership database using the Membership classes.

Membership Provider Authentication Not Working Authenticating WCF Service

Oct 27, 2010

I have a SqlMembershipProvider store with Roles enabled. This is configured and has the user "devtest" in the roles "xxUser" and "xxAdmin".

I also have a WCF service, which I want to authenticate and authorize against. My problem is that:

the authorisation is not happening, code just executes despite the policy attribute I don't get any identity or security context so do not know who is calling the service I need: to know which user is calling the
method some degree of rejecting users if permissions don't match (ideally this should be performed
within the RoleProvider/MembershipProvider/WCF but can do it myself if I have to) SSL in transport

I have my service contract set up thus:

public interface ISupportService
[PrincipalPermission(SecurityAction.Demand, Role = "ThisRoleDoesNotExist")]
List<BaseInterestRate> GetAllBaseInterestRates();
the code is simple enough:
public class SupportService : ISupportService
public List<BaseInterestRate> GetAllBaseInterestRates()
OperationContext operationContext = OperationContext.Current;
ServiceSecurityContext serviceSecurityContext = ServiceSecurityContext.Current; // is always null
using (xxxEntities entities = new xxxEntities())
return new List<BaseInterestRate>(entities.BaseInterestRates);
My service configuration is thus:
<behavior name="SupportServiceBehavior">
<serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="false" httpsGetEnabled="true" />
<serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="false" />
<serviceAuthorization principalPermissionMode="UseAspNetRoles" roleProviderName="AspNetSqlRoleProvider" />
<userNameAuthentication userNamePasswordValidationMode="MembershipProvider"
membershipProviderName="SqlMembershipProvider" />
<serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true"/>
<serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="false"/>
<serviceHostingEnvironment multipleSiteBindingsEnabled="true" />

Having already configured the MembershipProvider:

<membership defaultProvider="SqlMembershipProvider" >
<add name="SqlMembershipProvider"
type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider" />
<roleManager enabled="true">
<clear />
<add connectionStringName="SqlMembershipProvider" applicationName="xxx"
name="AspNetSqlRoleProvider" type="System.Web.Security.SqlRoleProvider" />
<add applicationName="xxx" name="AspNetWindowsTokenRoleProvider
type="System.Web.Security.WindowsTokenRoleProvider" />

I have followed the instructions at these pages to the letter:

How to: Use the SQL Server Role Provider with Windows Authentication in WCF Calling from Windows Forms (MSDN)
How to: Create and Install Temporary Client Certificates in WCF During Development (MSDN)
How to: Use wsHttpBinding with Username Authentication and TransportWithMessageCredentials in WCF Calling from Windows Forms (MSDN)
Also quite useful found via SO: Use Asp.Net Membership provider with a WCF .svc service (Alkampfer's Place)

I would at lest expect an issue with certificates/transport/etc. to fail with exceptions, but I can debug right in and over the WCF call. I have no security context/ user context available to me and when I use a user not in the two mentioned roles (which I do in the code example above), I don't get "kicked out".

My client app is currently a Web App, but will ultimately also serve a Windows Forms app and Test suite. I'm currently using the ASP.NET WebDev server and am running .NET 4.0.

Am I missing something?

Mobiles :: Adding Web Service To Smart Device Project - Windows Mobile 6 Professional

Mar 31, 2011

I'm new to developing mobile apps and have hit a brick wall. I use Web Services all the time so I know I have created it correctly and it works. The issue is that i cant seem to add it to my class or form in the Smart Device Project.

When I right click I get the option to add Web Reference, I then navigate to the url and add as I normally would. When I then try to access the service I cant seem to navigat to it from code and it is not available. I have also tried adding a Web Service directly by 'Add New Item, but this file type is not available in the list of installed templates.

Forms Data Controls :: Enter Key Will Not Click The Form's Default Button On Mobile Browser, IE Mobile 5.0

Aug 10, 2010

I am developing a web based application for a Motorolla Mc 9090, it is a wireless barcode scanner running windows mobile 5.0.

The idea is to centralize the inventory in one database, by scanning items, serials, bins etc.

I have a set of pages each containg forms, where the user will have to scan an item, and automaticall the scanner has a carriege return (ENTER key) the idea was to have the user simply scan, and the page would automatically click the button posting to server for processing and then the server would reply.

For some reason i cannot get the focus() to work as well as the defaultbutton propperty of the form. There is also 1 more problem, the readOnly textboxes look the same as the non readOnly textboxes, even with the backcolor property changed.(guessing this is just MS)

Security :: Authenticating Through A Webservice?

Jun 9, 2010

Does anyone have an example of authenticating through a webservice ?I have a website that allows users to login in using the <asp:Login> control.After they are authenticated I want them to use a webservice to add records, modify records. (The web service will be used later by external sites).I have a webservice up and running which the aspx page "authenticates" to using Profile.UserName.Is there a way to get the aspx page to send the username and password used at log on without having the user enter it each time ?And then how do I authenticate them ? (maybe using Membership.ValidateUser ?)

Authenticating SQL Connection Using Certificates In .NET?

I've noticed that it is possible SQL Server 2005/2008 to authenticate replication accounts using certificates. Is it possible to authenticate .NET SqlConnection in the same manor?

Ideally, I'd like to do away with password authentication completely and have the aspnet user connect using a certificate stored against its account.

Web Forms :: User Name Not Authenticating?

Oct 20, 2010

I have a website that requires a login. I'm used the login wizard in asp.net 2008. The site is in vesion 2.0 as that is what the hosting company allows. The login scipt apprears to work appropriately in that if the the wrong username or password is entered the error appears and the url for the login page doesn't work. Once the correct identification info is entered, the user is taken to the correct url.

The problem is that the username does not seem to "stick" for lack of a better word. The site is used to order wedding photos. The user selects the photos and all the required date EXCEPT the user name is entered into the database. This is a problem since there is no way to filter the order when the person goes to the shopping cart therefore the shopping cart opens with no product in it. To make matters more frustrating, IT USED TO WORK! I don't understand why its not working now.

The hosting company, 1and1.com has looked over the code and can't find anything wrong with it. Their one suggestion was to add the following "patch" code to the web.config file as a "work around", and if that didn't work to try using vwd 2010. I'm hesitant to do that since I've not used it before and don't want to make matters worse.

I'm including my web.config page as well as a sample of the code behind to see

Security :: Authenticating Internal Users Against Active Directory?

Mar 23, 2011

I have a asp.net (3.5) web-app that will be used in an intranet. I need to enforce that users type in their network credentials (windows credentials) before they can log into this application. I intentionally need to disallow Integrated Windows Authentication. I need to authenticate these users against my company's Active Directory, that is obviously on the same network as my .net web app.

I have been reading a bit about Forms Authentication using ActiveDirectoryMembershipProvider - [URL]. I also stumbled upon this - [URL]. Based on what I can tell, both seem to do what I need to get done. Could somebody tell me what are the major differences, pros/cons and when you would use which method? Or are these exactly identical, and both achieve the exact same results?

From the security perspective...what do I need to watch for? I am assuming if I use SSL that will cover me for when I pass the username/pwd to AD for verification?
