One of the things lacking in the Silverlight framework is any kind of user principal or constructs for authenticating the user inside the Silverlight app and having a security context that tells you who the user is and what they are allowed to do. Also if you want to start customizing the application on a per-user basis, you are on your own. WCF RIA Services comes to the rescue with a great infrastructure for doing those things with minimal code and effort.

In this webinar, you will see how you can secure both the server and client sides of your application. You will see how your Silverlight application can join a secure session of a hosting web site or set up its own security context by logging in the user from the app. You'll see how you can use a RIA Services authentication domain service even if you are not using any other features of RIA services to perform user authentication and get roles and identity information back to the client to perform client side authorization such as disabling features based on the rights of the individual user. You will also see how to add user-specific settings and preferences and have easy access to those on the client side and persistence on the server side.


  • Securing a Silverlight App by joining a host site session
  • Securing WCF RIA domain services
  • Getting authentication and authorization context into the client
  • Setting up personalization and leveraging it on the client

The live session includes a short Q&A part at the end. A recording of this session will be emailed to all registrants.
