ASP.NET Core 1.0 and MVC 6 are bringing many changes to how ASP.NET developers write web applications. Security, as always, is an important part of any platform. In this session we will see how some aspects of security in ASP.NET Core 1.0 will look familiar to the prior versions, but other features are brand new in an attempt to improve on the approaches from the past.

This session will bring you up to speed on everything you need to know about the security features in ASP.NET 5Core 1.0 and MVC 6.
