Adding Secured GP Services in Silverlight

Idea created by LANDVEST on Mar 1, 2012
    I canont believe what I'm seeing. Everywhere I turn there is another problem with secured services: ArcGIS Online Viewer doesn't support secured services; ArcGIS Android app. does not support secured services. I had been working with Flex Viewer, until I learned that Silverlight was providing a robust set of editing tools. So off I went down another path and today find out this. I do apologize for this being more of a rant than a technical article, and just maybe I have a warped sense of reality having worked in the private industry for the last decade, but I cannot fathom why ensuring secured services are availabe isn't a top priority across the board. Is ESRI catering more toward those who can afford to share their data with the public?
