Securing iOS applications using ACS 2.0

You can have your iOS applications such as those running on iPhone integrated with ACS. The Microsoft Developer and Platform Evangelism (DPE) team has released Windows Azure Toolkit for iOS, which allows the iOS application developers to easily integrate their applications with ACS and access Windows Azure Storage Services from native iOS applications.

Getting ready

You can download the iOS toolkit from https://github.com/WindowsAzure-Toolkits/wa-toolkit-ios.

How to do it...

To create an ACS-integrated iOS application, perform the following steps:

  1. First, configure ACS. Configure the relying party application, the identity providers, and the rules as described in the Configuring Access Control Service for an ASP.NET MVC 3 relying party recipe. The only difference, with respect to configuring the relying party application, is that this time you don't have a URL for the website. You will provide some ID, for example uri:wattoolkitiosdemo and for the token format use SWT instead of SAML 2.0.
