Solution Architecture with .NET

By: Jamil Hallal

Overview of this book

Understanding solution architecture is a must to build and integrate robust systems to meet your client’s needs. This makes it crucial for a professional .NET software engineer to learn the key skills of a .NET solution architect to create a unique digital journey and build solutions for a wide range of industries, from strategy and design to implementation. With this handbook, developers working with the .NET technology will be able to put their knowledge to work. The book takes a hands-on approach to help you become an effective solution architect. You’ll start by learning the principles of the software development life cycle (SDLC), the roles and responsibilities of a .NET solution architect, and what makes a great .NET solution architect. As you make progress through the chapters, you’ll understand the principles of solution architecture and how to design a solution, and explore designing layers and microservices. You'll complete your learning journey by uncovering modern design patterns and techniques for designing and building digital solutions. By the end of this book, you'll have learned how to architect your modern web solutions with ASP.NET Core and Microsoft Azure and be ready to automate your development life cycle with Azure DevOps.

Chapter 7: Securing ASP.NET Web Applications

In the previous chapter, we explored the architecture considerations that should be taken into account when designing and implementing a solution architecture. Why do we need to learn this? Because creating an innovative and robust software solution requires us to plan for various aspects and consider different attributes for balancing short-term and long-term product goals and priorities. Paying attention to the quality of attributes, logging, and tracing, along with a proper deployment strategy, will help you deliver a good-quality product that is scalable, maintainable, and secure.

It is exciting for any solution architect to design and build a fancy product; however, this achievement can be ruined if we don't pay attention to the security risks involved. Security is an integral part of any software solution, especially ASP.NET web applications. By nature, these applications are exposed to a large number of users, therefore security...
