Combining Shared Secret and Certificates
As discussed in the introduction article this walkthrough will explain how you can implement WCF security with the Windows Azure Service Bus to ensure that you can protect your endpoint in the cloud with a shared secret but also combine this with certificates so that you can identify the sender of the message. Prerequisites As in the previous article before going into the walk through I want to explain a few assumptions about the scenario we are implementing but to keep the article shorter I am not ......

Combining Shared Secret and Username Token – Azure Service Bus
As discussed in the introduction article this walkthrough will explain how you can implement WCF security with the Windows Azure Service Bus to ensure that you can protect your endpoint in the cloud with a shared secret but also flow through a username token so that in your listening WCF service you will be able to identify who sent the message. This could either be in the form of an application or a user depending on how you want to use your token. Prerequisites Before going into the walk through ......

TransportWithMessageCredential & Service Bus – Introduction
Recently we have been working on a project using the Windows Azure Service Bus to expose line of business applications. One of the topics we discussed a lot was around the security aspects of the solution. Most of the samples you see for Windows Azure Service Bus often use the shared secret with the Access Control Service to protect the service bus endpoint but one of the problems we found was that with this scenario any claims resulting from credentials supplied by the client are not passed through ......

Azure Service Bus - Authorization failure
I fell into this trap earlier in the week with a mistake I made when configuring a service to send and listen on the azure service bus and I thought it would be worth a little note for future reference as I didnt find anything online about it. After configuring everything when I ran my code sample I was getting the below error. WebHost failed to process a request.Sender Information: System.ServiceModel.Service... System.ServiceModel.Service... ......

Service Bus random thought for the day
Its been really nice to see that over the last few weeks since we implemented our Dynamics CRM connecting via Azure Service Bus to backend line of business applications solution how much interest this has sparked within the rest of the organisation and other subsiduaries and how many people are coming up with ideas elsewhere on how they can leverage what we did and how simple it could be to connect their applications to the cloud. Im currently working with one of these companies and its refreshing ......

Build & Deployment Guide for Service Bus Relay Project
Ive recently published a sample guide based on a real-world project where we implemented an on-premise WCF routing solution to connect SAAS applications to our on premise line of business applications. The guide will discuss: How we configured and setup the infrastructure How we setup the on-premise server to listen to the service bus What software we used How we configured Windows Azure This contains some useful contextual information around the reference scenario and hopefull this will be very ......

WCF Routing Service Filter Generator
Recently I've been working with the WCF routing service and in our case we were simply routing based on the SOAP Action. This is a pretty good approach for a standard redirection of the message when all messages matching a SOAP Action will go to the same endpoint. Using the SOAP Action also lets you be specific about which methods you expose via the router. One of the things which was a pain was the number of routing rules I needed to create because we were routing for a lot of different methods. ......

Resources for Service Bus Projects
Having recently been involves in the Windows Server Service Bus TAP and also working on a project using Azure Service Bus I thought it would be useful to bring together some of the excellent community resources which are available into the technet wiki to help people have a single place to access most of the material. I thought something like the excellent job done with the BizTalk part of technet wiki would be ideal. The links are below: Azure Service Bus - http://social.technet.micro... ......

Challenges and Lessons Learnt from our Windows Azure Service Bus Project
Recently one of the clients I work with completed a project which put live a solution using Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online using the Windows Azure Service Bus to do a hybrid integration solution to integrate with on-premise applications. From a technology perspective it was relatively simple but for a company doing their first serious cloud project, and in addition integrating the cloud with on-premise applications there were many challenges which had little to do with technology. Although some of ......
