MSDN Webcast: Dave's Top Ten Ways To Secure Your Desktop App
Next Monday from 9am to 10:30 (PST) there is going to be a security webcast on MSDN that relates to how you can secure a desktop application using the architecture in .NET. In this webcast, you will see some practical best practices for securing your .NET desktop application.
The following topics will be covered:
- Store non-volatile user-specific data in isolated storage
- Use Integrated Security and Role Based Authorization through Windows Groups
- Use COM+ Role-based security as a middle-tier solution
- Assign strong-names to your re-usable assemblies
- Use Link Demands and strong names to secure what code calls your assembly
- Use Remoting as your middle tier via HTTP Channel, IIS and SSL
- Run your code from a restricted code group especially when using LoadFrom()
- Create an AppDomain to achieve a security boundary within your application
- Use Impersonation to allow code to run under an account that can access specified resources
- Use the Framework - DON'T REINVENT THE WHEEL!

If you can't make it don't fret! They will have it available later for download. Of course, I will summarize the experience when I am done if you just want the highlights!
