Sample Code for Vittorio Bertocci’s WP7 with Access Control Services Demo at PDC 2010 is Available for Download

Vittorio Bertocci’s (@vibronet) ACS and Windows Phone 7 post of 11/6/2010 commented on Caleb Baker’s post (see below):

Caleb just released the code of the WP7+ACS demo I’ve shown last week in my PDC session (direct link to the WP7 demo here). If you didn’t see it: in a nutshell, the sample demonstrates some early thinking about how to leverage both social and business IPs (Facebook, Windows Live ID, Google, Yahoo!, ADFS2 instances) to access REST web services (secured via OAuth2.0: part of the OAuth2.0+WIF code comes from the FabrikamShipping SaaS source package) from a Windows Phone 7 application.  What are you doing still here? Go get it! :-)

Caleb Baker announced Access Control for Windows Phone 7 Apps in an 11/5/2010 post to the Claims-Based Identity blog:

image[106] With the U.S. release of Windows Phone 7 around the corner, I’m excited to share a sample that shows some of our early thinking around how ACS in LABS can be used to enable sign in to web services… from the phone apps.

This makes it simple to write REST services, for Windows Phone 7 Silverlight applications, that can be used millions of users, including those at Live ID, Facebook, Google, Yahoo and AD FS accounts.

To see it in action, check out Vittorio’s PDC talk. The sample appears in the last few minutes, but I recommend watching the full talk.

As an early sample of how mobile apps may be supported, your feedback is very valuable. Download it and try it out!
