The key advantage of this Track is to help show how to implement oData with the Entity Framework exposed with WCF RESTful services and secured with Azure’s Access Control System (oAuth). Implementing this as an alternative to implementing WCF SOAP based services using x509 certs with TransportWithMessage Credentials as the security model. I was happy to see that this implementation was very seamless and straightforward to implement with the same level of security.
