Owin model and Kestrell request handling

  • OWIN – Open Web Interface for .NET
  • allows web apps to be decoupled from web servers
  • defines standard way for middleware to be used in a pipeline to handle requests and provide responses
  • ASP.NET Core applications can interoperate with OWIN-based applications, servers and middleware

Microsoft.AspNetCore.Owin package provides two adapter implementations:

  • ASP.NET Core to OWIN
  • OWIN to ASP.NET Core

This allows ASP.NET Core to be hosted on top of an OWIN compatible server/host or for other OWIN compatible components to be run on top of ASP.NET Core.
