I develop primarily in ASP.NET and really like using Windows authenication with the sqlroleprovider as the authorization.

I like the built in methods like Roles.IsUserInRole("Admins") etc.

What are the available options for WPF regarding authoriztion? For example allowing a person to make edits only if they are in a specific role, etc.

I am a newbie to WPF (and Winforms).

Thanks very much,

Thanks for responding, I have seen the second one but not the first one - Thanks!

Do you happen to know about NetSqlAzMan? -  http://netsqlazman.codeplex.com/ - It looks like an approach for using windows authentication and sql stored authorization. Any experience or opionions about it?
