    Hi People!

    I'm building a SOA style application that contaisn a DB->Data Access
    Layer->Business Logic Layer->WCF service. From there I will have three
    types of clients: a web application, a win forms application, and a
    compact framework application.

    My question relates to authentication between the web application and
    the WCF application. Currently my users are stored in the SQL database
    and I'm using a custom authentication policy as suggested by P&P. The
    part I'm having difficulties with is how to pass the username and
    password to each instance of the WCF client created by the website and
    where to cache the credentials (or even if to cache them). I wonding
    if anyone had experiance with this and could offer some insight?

    Thanks!
