thinktecture Security Token Service Starter Kit - or: "Look ma: even *I* can have a STS!"


We are happy to announce the thinktecture Security Token Service (STS) Starter Kit. It shows how to build a basic yet powerful STS based on Geneva Framework (Beta 2) which integrates with all the nice and powerful ASP.NET-isms like membership, roles and profiles.

The heart of the STS is configured with a simple web.config entry like this:

<starterSTS siteName="thinktecture Security Token Service Starter Sample"
              issuerUri="http://sample.thinktecture.com/trust"
              claimsBaseUri="http://sample.thinktecture.com/claims"
              requireEncryption="false"
              requireSSL="false"
              enableMessageWSTrust="true"
              enableMixedWSTrust="false" />
