C# 7 and .NET Core 2.0 High Performance

By: Ovais Mehboob Ahmed Khan

Overview of this book

While writing an application, performance is paramount. Performance tuning for realworld applications often involves activities geared toward fnding bottlenecks; however, this cannot solve the dreaded problem of slower code. If you want to improve the speed of your code and optimize an application's performance, then this book is for you. C# 7 and .NET Core 2.0 High Performance begins with an introduction to the new features of what?explaining how they help in improving an application's performance. Learn to identify the bottlenecks in writing programs and highlight common performance pitfalls, and learn strategies to detect and resolve these issues early. You will explore multithreading and asynchronous programming with .NET Core and learn the importance and effcient use of data structures. This is followed with memory management techniques and design guidelines to increase an application’s performance. Gradually, the book will show you the importance of microservices architecture for building highly performant applications and implementing resiliency and security in .NET Core. After reading this book, you will learn how to structure and build scalable, optimized, and robust applications in C#7 and .NET.

Protecting ASP.NET Core APIs

Securing web applications is an important milestone for any enterprise-grade application to protect not only the data, but also to protect it from different attacks from malicious sites.

There are various scenarios where security is an important factor for any web application:

  • The information sent over the wire contains sensitive information.
  • APIs are exposed publicly and are used by users to perform bulk operations.
  • APIs are hosted on a server where the user can use some tools to do packet sniffing and read sensitive data.

To address the preceding challenges and to secure our application, we should consider the following options:

SSL (Secure Socket Layer)

Add security at the transport or network...
