VIDEO – Create and connect to Oracle in Azure

Wanted to record a demo of how to create Oracle 12 instance in Azure and connect with GUI tools from Windows client.   Video shows full processing (including troubleshooting) with TCP firewall, DBCA create command, system password, and all.    Great way to build personal dev environment to learn Oracle connection strings and syntax, while staying out of live production corporate Oracle system.

Cheers.

VIDEO – Validate Azure AD Username Password

Applications often need a way to validate current user account.   For example, completing online forms and provide signature with password.  With Active Directory on-premise, the [System.DirectoryServices] namespace can be used to validate username and password with [PrincipalContext] and [ValidateCredentials].

With Azure AD, different methods are needed.  Video demo below.  Source code available at https://github.com/spjeff/VerifyAzureAD/

Cheers!

VIDEO – HTTP Header Client Secret protected Web API

Watch the video below to see a demo of protecting WebAPI with HTTP header and a Client Secret.    By default, new Web API projects lack any security mechanism and are open to any anonymous user.    Protecting Dot Net methods with an IF() statement condition provides a simple security mechanism to ensure only users who know the Client Secret are able to run the API and execute the method.

NOTE – Check out http://www.spjeff.com/2017/10/05/video-azure-ad-protected-web-api-in-an-angularjs-spa/ for more complete WebAPI security with Azure AD.

Cheers!
