Unworkable article

by chriswfl In reply to Secure custom Web service ...

The whole point of a web service is to be called by another application, NOT Internet Explorer. This article is only (mostly) about using IE.

More specific article title

by aspatton Contributor In reply to Unworkable article

The point of the article was to point out that existing security structures utilized by ASP.NET developers may be utilized in applications utilizing .NET-based Web Services, so you are probably correct that the article title may have been a bit misleading.

A more generalized approach to security will be covered in an upcoming installment, so please stay tuned. I appreciate your feedback.

When referring to other resources, like "last week's article", it would be really nice if you provide a link to those.

Thanks very much.
