ShowContextService

a posting on the developmentor list about troubleshooting web service to web service authentication problems made me release this code i wrote a while ago.
this is basically a port of keith brown’s showcontexts.aspx to a web service.

build the service and disable anonymous authentication on the virtual directory. the client shows several authentication variations including impersonation – you can also play around with web.config settings.

the service returns the three identitities we have to cope with in asp.net.

  • the managed identity (user.identity)
  • the process identity
  • the thread identity
