ASP.NET MVC 6 support

Dec 17, 2014 at 1:54 PM
Hi,

Are OWIN Middlewares supported in ASP.NET MVC 6 (vNext)? (specifically "Microsoft.Owin.Security.Jwt").

I want to secure a Web API backend (implemented with MVC 6) using JWT tokens.

Thanks.

OWIN middleware in general, yes, but not all of the security middleware will work. I haven't checked JWT specifically but I think it will work.

We'll be porting the JWT middleware to ASP.NET 5 soon so it can be used directly with MC6.
