Adam Freeman & Allen Jones With the spread of web-enabled desktop clients and web-server based applications, developers can no longer afford to treat security as an afterthought. It's one topic, in fact, that .NET forces you to address, since Microsoft has placed security-related features at the core of the .NET Framework. Yet, because a developer's carelessness or lack of experience can still allow a program to be used in an unintended way, Programming .NET Security shows you how the various tools will help you write secure applications.The book works as both a comprehensive tutorial and reference to security issues for .NET application development, and contains numerous practical examples in both the C# and VB.NET languages. With Programming .NET Security, you will learn to apply sound security principles to your application designs, and to understand the concepts of identity, authentication and authorization and how they apply to .NET security. This guide also teaches you to: use the .NET run-time security features and .NET security namespaces and types to implement best-practices in your applications, including evidence, permissions, code identity and security policy, and role based and Code Access Security (CAS) use the .NET cryptographic APIs , from hashing and common encryption algorithms to digital signatures and cryptographic keys, to protect your data.use COM+ component services in a secure mannerIf you program with ASP.NET will also learn how to apply security to your applications. And the book also shows you how to use the Windows Event Log Service to audit Windows security violations that may be a threat to your solution.Authors Adam Freeman and Allen Jones, early .NET adopters and long-time proponents of an "end-to-end" security model, based this book on their years of experience in applying security policies and developing products for NASDAQ, Sun Microsystems, Netscape, Microsoft, and others. With the .NET platform placing security at center stage, the better informed you are, the more secure your project will be.

Allen Jones, Matthew MacDonald, Rakesh Rajan & Adam Freeman This book features extensive coverage of all .NET 4.0 technologies that the reader is likely to come into contact with. It covers everything from the LINQ to the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) with clear explanations and fully working code examples.
Rakesh Rajan, Matthew MacDonald & Allen Jones Mastering .NET development is as much about understanding the functionality of the .NET Framework as it is about the syntax and grammar of your chosen language. Visual C# 2005 Recipes: A Problem-Solution Approach recognizes this fine balance. This book meets your need for fast, effective solutions to the difficulties you encounter in your coding projects.
The recipes included in this book have been chosen and written with emerging pros in mind. The book features an equal balance of code and text. The supplied code gives you everything you need to solve the problem at hand, while the accompanying text provides supporting information.
This is a fully up-to-date reference for .NET 2.0 programmers. All code comes as a stand-alone Visual Studio 2005 solution. The book even covers advanced concepts that take you past basic recipe solutions youll be able to distill entire concepts and theories.
Sam Bourton, Allen Jones & Sam Noble Windows Professional Foundation (WPF) offers amazing opportunities to .NET programmers in terms of the user interfaces they can deliver to their customers. But this significant technological advance comes with a steep learning curve, requiring the programmer to learn new classes, new syntax, and an entirely new approach to user interface development.
Although WPF has been generally available since 2008, commercial take–up has been relatively slow, and the publicly available body of knowledge has been weak in terms of real–world examples and best–practice information.
Using WPF Recipes in C# 2008, you'll find a simple and straightforward approach to solving the problems you face every day. Each solution contains a complete, working example that demonstrates how to make the best use of WPF. You can use the example as a template to solve your own problem or as a base on which to build a solution tailored to your specific needs.
Packed with well–structured and documented solutions to a broad range of common WPF problems, this book, will be a valuable addition to any C# programmer's reference library. Examples included provide you with a rich source of information as you begin to learn and will be an invaluable quick–reference guide once you're a proficient WPF programmer.
The emphasis on solving the day–to–day WPF problems that all programmers face frees you from needing to trawl through weighty programming tomes or sift through API documentation, allowing you to focus on the more interesting and innovative aspects of your project.
