Custom DDNS update script on ASUS router with merlin firmware

While I was looking for guidelines regarding implementation of WCF REST services with Federated Authentication I found this nice TechNet article with number of scenarios. It aggregates number of possible scenarios with pretty good explanation. And if you are looking for some more info in this topic, there is this nice free book from MS A Guide to Claims-Based Identity and Access Control.

Have a nice reading!
