I’ve been playing around with Authorize attributes in .NET Core as of late. With a custom (derived) authorization attribute, it seemed like it wasn’t always being evaluated. This caused me to pause and take a step back to examine using the built-in policy-based authorization.

I’ve previously blogged about dealing with SSL in a .NET Core application. Well, I wanted to expand upon this a bit when debugging in Visual Studio 2017. In the case of working with a development environment, this needs to tie into the launch profiles. Without handling this properly, IISExpress integration is broken which becomes an annoyance.

.NET Core doesn’t have built-in support for LDAP (Active Directory). This can be a show-stopper for a lot of projects. It was a bit of a show-stopper for me earlier as well.

So, references to these libraries won’t be available:

System.DirectoryServices
System.DirectoryServices.AccountManagement
System.DirectoryServices.Protcols

But, there are alternatives to mitigate the problem.

Microsoft’s guidance, in regards to deploying .NET Core applications to IIS, is a bit lacking. Throw in a continuous integration tool, like Team City, and it becomes a bit of trial and error to get a .NET Core app deployed to an IIS hosted instance.

It seems like only yesterday when I setup an OWIN OAuth server to provide single-signon capabilities for all of my apps. Since that time, though, OWIN has kind of fallen to the wayside in favor of newer security mechanisms in .NET Core. However, it is possible to make an OWIN application play nice with a .NET Core application to share cookie-based authentication.

At Build last week, the possibility to have global filters applied to a context opened the possibility to support multi-tenancy scenarios directly. Multi-tenancy is the concept of having specific users, or “tenants”, having access to, or ownership of, only their data. In the past, I have simply checked a user’s role and conditionally added filters. Pushing this into a global filter, though, seems a bit more practical.
