While not an instant answer for you, I found the book Learning WCF very useful; in it there's a small section on versioning (which is similar to Craig McMurtry's advice posted by Espo). If you're looking for a general intro book, it's very good. Her website has lots of good stuff too: Das Blonde

Edit: No sure why her site isn't responding; it's been a while since I've visited, so maybe she shut it down. No sure.

I guess you'll want to check WCF Membership provider. I posted a few months about it http://sgomez.blogspot.com/2007/12/wcf-membership-provider-sample.html follow the links and also I'd recommend the book Learning WCF by Michele LeRoux Bustamante.

Good luck! (you're gonna need it)

Use WCF.

It allows you to expose a service using multiple protocols and multiple security contexts.

A very good resource for learning WCF is Michele Bustamante's book Learning WCF.

http://www.amazon.com/Learning-Hands-Michele-LeRoux-Bustamante/dp/0596101627 Note: If you do get this book, she has an updated version of Chapter 1 and an appendix on her website.

Her website is also a good source of up-to-date information: http://www.dasblonde.net/default.aspx
