What is Windows Azure?

Microsoft’s Azure Services Platform is a cloud platform (cloud computing platform as a service) offering that “provides a wide range of Internet services that can be consumed from both on-premises environments or the Internet (though the platform itself will not be made available for on-premises deployments.

What is Full Trust and why is it required?

Full trust (CAS - Code Access Security Level) allows ASP.NET applications to execute native code, to read from the Registry and Windows Event Log, and to read and write to files outside of the application’s virtual directory. In short, with full trust one web application could delete the entire contents of another web application.


Windows Azure and Full Trust

Windows Azure now offers the option of running the code in your Web and Worker roles under full trust. As a developer this opens up a lot of exciting and compelling options -

- Inter-process Communication via Named Pipes:
If you application spawns processes, you can communicate among them via named pipes.

- Invoking non-.NET Code:
Many developers have existing investments in native code or may choose to use native code for some specialized tasks. .NET full trust makes it possible to use native code via spawning processes or Platform Invoke (P/Invoke).

- Using .NET Libraries that Require Full Trust:
Certain .NET libraries, including libraries in the .NET Services SDK, require full trust and can now be used in Windows Azure.

To enable full trust, simply add the enableNativeCodeExecution attribute to your role in the Service Definition file and set the attribute value to true:

<?xml version=”1.0” encoding=”utf-8”?>

<ServiceDefinition name=”MyService” xmlns=http://schemas.microsoft.com/ServiceHosting/2008/10/ServiceDefinition>

 <WebRole name=”WebRole” enableNativeCodeExecution=”true”>

  <InputEndpoints>

   <InputEndpoint name=”HttpIn” protocol=”http” port=”80”/>
 
  </InputEndpoints>

 </WebRole>

Full Trust European Hosting :: What is ASP.NET Full Trust Hosting and a Few Good Full Trust Hosting Plans

clock April 17, 2010 05:45 by author Scott

What is Full Trust Hosting and What is Modified Full Trust Hosting?

A lot of web developers building web applications turn to web hosting companies to host their website. Web hosting companies offer a variety of plans.

Two type of plans largely offered are -

1. Shared web hosting or Shared plans
2. Dedicated web hosting or Dedicated plans

Shared plans, are the most economical and practical for low-traffic websites, can have anywhere from 25 to 150 separated websites hosted from the same web server. When hosting multiple websites on the same server, it is important that one website cannot affect or harm another site. For example, both the web hosting company and its customers want to prevent one website from, say, reading the connect string information from Web.config of another website.

Microsoft’s ASP.NET web technology / language allows for web hosting companies to define trust levels, which dictate what operations are permitted by ASP.NET applications. A web hosting company can either use one of the preset trust levels - Full, High, Medium, Low, or Minimal - or can create a custom trust level.

Full trust is the default, allows ASP.NET applications to execute native code, to read from the Registry and Windows Event Log, and to read and write to files outside of the application’s virtual directory. In short, with full trust one web application could delete the entire contents of another web application.

Now most web hosting companies run in medium trust, which greatly reduces the potential for harm by limiting the set of operations an ASP.NET application can perform. But Medium trust will place a number of restrictions on an application, including limiting an application’s file access to within the virtual directory where the application lives. While the protection granted by medium trust is reassuring, its limited functionality can be a cause of worry for developers. There are a lot of web applications and components in the market which do require full trust to work as desired.

Now what will happen, in this scenario. In this case a lot of web hosts run the web applications as modified full trust, which is a modified version of full trust and web hosting companies block certain modules or permissions of full trust. e.g. you can change this full trust to be effective only for the needed functionality (or vice versa, disable it for the File IO). This can be done through the .NET Framework Configuration tools on the server (caspol.exe etc) but it will require some additional setup.

Also, there are ways of allowing applications run in full trust while still keeping them in a sandbox. Many respectable shared hosts do allow this as its required for applications like FlexWiki, but is something that must be requested.

Full Trust European Hosting :: Disadvantages of ASP.NET Full Trust Security Level

clock April 10, 2010 04:49 by author Scott

Why shouldn’t we allow any domain to run Asp.Net application under the Full Trust level? Below are the reasons:

If the Asp.Net application is allowed to run under Full Trust level then it can:

1. Browse(create/edit and delete too) files in the Windows directory using the System.IO namespace.

2. Browse(create/edit and delete too) folders in the Program Files directory using the System.IO namespace.

3. Browse(create/edit and delete too) files in the System32 directory using the System.IO namespace.

4. Output of the OS name and version number using the System.Environment class.

5. Output of the server’s local IP address using server variables, etc.

In short, full trust Asp.Net application can do anything with the server since it gains the full access of the server when run under the Full Trust.

Therefore, do not ever offer any domain a full trust level in the shared server if your are a shared hosting provider.
