I am upgrading an existing framework to Enterprise Library 5.0 from (3.1) and have a whole Authentication project which includes DBAuthentication, LDAPAuthentication, etc. But, I don't see any Authentication block in Enterprise Library 5.0.
I'm not sure how to proceed in upgrading my custom Authentication providers. Is Authentication no longer needed because it's now built in to Windows or the .Net platform or what?
In doing this upgrade to Enterprise Library 5.0 I have found it extremely difficult but I've looked at how Enterprise Library used to do it and how it does it now in the source code to figure things out.
I have to wonder if I should change the authentication classes in the same way as the authorization classes are updated between the old and new versions of Enterprise Library or if I should scrap the authentication modules completely or what?
Microsoft should have really had an in depth upgrade manual that shows what you should change to what with examples. The migration document doesn't cut it at all!
Thanks in advance for your help.
