On Thursday afternoon, Stefan Schackow gave a talk on ASP.NET and IIS: New Developments in Web Security with IIS 6.0 and ASP.NET. I decided to attend this talk not only because I’m interested in the subject matter, but also because I’m the technical editor for his new book, Professional ASP.NET 2.0 Security, Membership, and Role Management by Stefan Schackow
Some of the security features of IIS6 are very cool. There is an new feature called wildcard mapping that will let the ASPNET runtime process a request before and after another request (like asp or html).
It was a great presentation on web security.
