In 1997, Microsoft embarked on a "bet the company" strategy that was to reinvent the way the company did business. Even before its release, .NET made major strides in reinventing the way that software developers viewed the software they wrote.
Now that it is released, .NET and the .NET Framework will change the software development process for good.
.NET Framework Security provides the ultimate high-end comprehensive reference to all of the new security features available in .NET. Through extensive code samples and step-by-step walkthroughs of configuration techniques, the reader is taken deep into the world of secure applications. Demonstrations of creating custom procedures and a full explanation of each aspect separate this book from many other "lecture books." Many of the concepts expressed in this book are not only viable in .NET, but on the Internet in general. These factors combined make this the one reference that every developer and system administrator should have.
