Recently I had blogged about SharePoint’s Business Connectivity Service. Another service which goes hand-in-hand with BCS is SharePoint’s Secure Store Service. I talk in more detail about the Secure Store within part three of my SharePoint BCS overview series. However, Secure Store is not limited to just BCS. It can be used for Excel Services, Access Services and even custom applications.
Today I am going to take what I have discussed already about Secure Store and show you how to create and configure a new entry that you can then consume with another system\service. I plan to show you how to create your secure store entry.
