Book Description

Pro ASP.NET Web API Security: Securing ASP.NET Web API

ASP.NET Web API is a key part of ASP.NET MVC 4 and the platform of choice for building RESTful services that can be accessed by a wide range of devices. Everything from JavaScript libraries to RIA plugins, readers to smart phones can consume your services using platform-agnostic HTTP.

With such wide accessibility, securingyour effectively needs to be a top priority. You will quickly find that the security protocols you’re familiar with from .NET (WS-* and similar)are less suitable than they once were in this new environment; proving themselves cumbersome and limited in terms of the standards they can work with.

Fortunately, ASP.NET Web API provides asimple robust security solution of its own that fits neatly within the ASP.NET MVC programming model and secures your code without the need for SOAP meaningthat there is no limit to the range of devices that it can work with – if it can understand HTTP then it can be secured by Web API. These SOAP-less security techniques are the focus of this book.

What you’ll learn

·         Identity and cryptography

·         HTTP basic and digest authentication and authentication

·         HTTP advanced concepts such as web caching, ETag, and CORS

·         Ownership factors of API keys, client X.509 certificates, and SAML tokens

·         Simple Web Token (SWT) and signed and encrypted JSON Web Token (JWT)

·         OAuth 2.0 from the ground up using JWT as the bearer token

·         OAuth 2.0 authorization codes and implicit grants using DotNetOpenAuth

·         Two-factor authentication using Google Authenticator

·         OWASP Top Ten risks for 2013
