Windows Azure Toolkit for Windows Phone 7 1.2 will Integrate with Access Control (ACS)

Oscar and Toni are working on how to move from EF1 to EF4 in order to get the REST api for iFacturas apps. Doing that, Oscar also are looking into Access Control for authentication. As I personally so focused on Single Sign-On just now, these news open up nice possibilities for us. Possibilities to open up our API in a convenient and user-friendly way. Vittorio Bertocci – MSFT blog tells:

Since the toolkit release (and since WP7 developer tools, actually) we heard loud and clear that you guys want to take advantage of claims-based identity on the phone too. Last April we added a new lab to the Identity Developer Training Kit and the Windows Azure Platform Training Kit, a lab which shows how to take advantage of ACS for handling sign-in and authorization via Windows Live ID/Facebook/Google/Yahoo in your phone apps. That lab is great (I’m told ) for understanding how the integration works, but if you want immediate satisfaction and just get the feature in your app the lab is not the right delivery vehicle.

…If the user happens to pick an account that was never used before, the sign-in operation morphs into a sign-up. Note, the screenshots below do not include the UI elements for installing the HTTPS certificate used for securing the communications with the service.
