Securing Your Application With Visual Guard – Part 1

On 4 June, 2013 01:00:52, in Reviewed, by Dirk Strauss

Visual Guard Features
Installation
Start Visual Guard WinConsole and create a Repository
Integrate Visual Guard Runtime with your Application
Connecting to your Repository / Set up your Application
Creating a User
Edit Password Policy

I think any developer will agree with me that adding security features to an application can be an absolute pain. This is especially true if you don’t have a set template or module that you can slot into your application.

Novalys Visual Guard

Well with Novalys Visual Guard, the integration of security features is no longer a slog. Visual Guard makes this process very easy to do indeed. In this post we will look at using Visual Guard with a plain simple Windows Forms Application, but Visual Guard can be integrated with .NET 2.0 and above, C#, vb.net, asp.net, Winforms, WCF, WPF, Silverlight, MVC3, MVC4, Windows Azure, PowerBuilder 8 and above, Microsoft Sharepoint and any technologies Supporting HTTP Requests (Java, C++…).

I have to admit that while much of the integration processes should be quite straight forward for most developers, the extensive help files and Developer’s Guide do warrant a read though in order to grasp some of the more advanced features of Visual Guard.

The Daily Six Pack

Today Simon Cooper talks about creating partial-trust appdomains and then Brian Harry discusses Visual Studio 2012.3 and reacts to a comment about VS 2012.3. Installing it should be quite smooth, so just run the installer for Visual Studio and TFS. If you have any questions, ask them on the Visual Studio Forums and if you encounter any bugs, you can log them on Microsoft Connect.

Sean Sexton shares another excellent bit of C# ambrosia (if you’re not following his blog, do so now) and the Code Inside Team shares a tip with the rest of us. After installing the Windows Phone SDK you will receive 36 Icons. The Code Inside Team tells us where to find them.

As a closing note, from time to time I write for BitRebels too. I thought it would be nice to (unashamedly) promote share one of my latest posts with the rest of you. The Daily Six Pack is primarily a Technology post, but from time to time, I like posting content that sides with the geek in me. That’s it for today folks! Be good and make it an excellent one! Here is The Daily Six Pack!
