I went to a presentation last night at the AZ ASP.NET User Group meeting. It was on Web Services Security with WSE 2.0. WSE is something that I have heard about, maybe even read a little about, but I haven’t taken the time to really learn about it so I figured this would be a good way to get into it. The speaker was $g(Michele Leroux Bustamante) and she did an excellent job. I didn’t nod off at all :) The timing on this was perfect. I was just writing a web service that I wanted to secure and I started down the road of using Forms Authentication in ASP.NET. That just turns out to be a big pain. WSE looks like it handles the problem quite nicely.

By the way, if anyone didn’t know, the guy on her t-shirt is Bob Dobbs from the Church of the Subgenius.
