Authorization with custom AtomPub service


  • Hi,

    I've been working lately on my own WCF AtomPub (REST) service for using WLW with my custom written blog. All basic actions such as adding, updating, retrieving and deleting an entry are working "fine".
    Although, right now I'm a little stuck when trying to implement the authentication. I can't seem to understand how WLW manages the authentication.

    I've tried to implement it on my side by checking the Authorization header. If not present sending the Unauthorized header etc... but their fails WLW on me.
    I also checked all headers send by WLW (for exemple when adding an entry) but I can't seem to find anything related to authentication.

    I must say that the WCF service currently is hosted in the same site as my website. And the IIS authentication is set to Unauthorized and Forms. All others are disabled.

    Can anyone help me into the right direction? Some interesting websites for example explaining this? (something I have missed in my searches on the web).

    I'd be very greatfull for it ;-)
