comment Identity and Access Control in Web API vs WCF
Now there is a good way to decide which to use. WS-* then WCF, no WS-* then Web API is an option with a lot of reasons supporting that choosing that route. Dominick Baier is the man, I am familiar with the thinktechture identityModel, it's great way to have a common ClaimsTransformation that transforms that initial claim into a common set of claims that is standard across both environments. It clicked, thanks!

comment Identity and Access Control in Web API vs WCF
Yes I understand all of those related posts, I use claims in both WCF and in Web API, usually through some claims transformation process based on some initial credential(initial "claim" in the generic sense). My issue is with that initial credential, WCF supports more secure credential protocols and I'm not sure if Web API does. If it has, I have never seen it used.

So what you and Dave are saying is don't use these complex security implementations basically? Web API is best used in simple situations?
