Welcome to the Microsoft Connected Services Framework 3.0 documentation. This documentation helps you understand Connected Services Framework (CSF) 3.0, and learn how to implement CSF distributed applications.

CSF provides a number of core services, including session management, identity management, and profile management. CSF also provides a service catalog Web service that is used to access a UDDI-based repository that contains definitions of all of the Web services associated with a particular application.

CSF provides order handling and billing services referred to as standard business events that are used to connect your CSF-based services solution to your regular order handling and billing systems. Web service interfaces are also provided to enable CSF-based solutions to interact with other third-party value-added services and products, such as Microsoft Hosted Messaging and Collaboration, Microsoft TV IPTV Edition, and Microsoft Office Live Meeting.
