Security :: Creating A Validateuser (username) Function - Validation Without A Password?
Mar 22, 2010
I have an application with a custom mebership (I'm still working on it). There is some funcionality in the application for asociating users. This means that (if already associated) one user could switch to some other user with just a click.
My question is:
Can I do a function that would allow me to authenticate one user without sending the password as a parameter?
I want to validate Username and Password in a database. My database name is UsersLogin. The database table name is UsrLogin. The users are Mary with password: acd222 andJohn with password: dbd445 (field names : Usersand UserPassword)How can these 2 users login using their individual account details? And how can i lock them out after 3 wrong attempts
I have create a masterpage and add content page include user (firsname,lastname,password,new password,confirm new password adn etc..)detail update field. i try to give a client side validation all the function work,but in confirm password its not hide wen give a correct password.. anybody give correct solution..code are below..
I have successfully created a SQL Server database that is holding the ASP.NET Membership data for my site. I have also created two textboxes and used them for user authentication after he/she keys in a user name and password. I would now like encrypt the password before comparing to the value stored in the Password field of the SQL Server database. However, I have been unable to do this so far.I have consulted the MSDN page for the embershipProvider.EncryptPassword method but I do not understand how to implement it. I have also tried searching Google for this method but I have only found a couple of examples and I don't understand those either.
I'm creating an LDAP class that contains a function that returns the managers username of the current user.
I know that I can use the "manager" attribute to return CN="name", OU="group", DC="company" etc.I specifically want the managers username, does anyone know if there is an attribute string that I can send to LDAP that specifically gets the managers username only? If not, is there an alternative method to do so?
I have created a test user/password on my web site. The intent is to have prospective clients login and try out the tool. Instead of telling them the userid/password of the test user, I'd like to tweak the Login wizard.
In the Load event, I was able to specify login1.UserName = "test user"
But when I try to specify the password, I'm told it is a readonly field. How can I 'force' a specific password? Or, how can I call the login event directly and pass the needed values?
I am trying to implement a small site which requires users to login using Forms based authentication. I have followed the tutorials found on various sites on the net and in particular the one at [URL] This enabled me to get a sample environment in place but it seems as though I am having a problem authenticating a user for which I know the username and password are correct.
I have a ASP.Net 3.5 site with my login.aspx form in a folder named login, my default.aspx in the root of the site and my protected content in a folder called main.
I am authenticating against a SQL Server Express database, so I have ran the aspnet_regsql.exe command to populate my database.
I have added the following authentication/authorization lines to my web.config
I believe that my connection string and my database are ok because if i use the ASP.NET Configuration from within Visual Studio I can create and manage my users and I can also see them in the tables in the SQL Server. Also if I do enter any incorect credentials in my login page the page tells me that the password is incorrect.
I am trying to login usng form authentication from my web.config but it does not work. In the web.config i have the following: (i am going to make the password secure but just need to work with the basics
so I will admit this is a pretty stupid question. To my defense, I have never done it before. So take pity. I followed Joe Stagner's video on using the built-in authentication. Now, I would like to query a database using VB.net codebehind to verify if the user exists. I am clueless. Yes, I have a connection string already.
I had created an application which authenticate the user from the Active Directory,I had published the code on the server but when the page executes it ask for the username/password.i don't want this to happen, how to suppress this username/password screen.
I am writing a simple plugin for IE. I need to store a password and username setting for the user who uses the plugin. I know that I can store the username/password in the registry, I can manually encrypt it using the encription classes with .NET, or I can store it in a config file and encrypt the config file. I was wondering if there is a specific pattern/mechanism that I should use to store password and username.
I have a website that uses master page. I want a pop up to display so that user has to enter valid user name/psw in order to see pages. There will be only one username/password so web.config will store that info.
how to display pop up and check username and password.
Currently I am storing my username and password (passwordFormat="SHA1") credientails in my web.config. I would like to figure out how to access them in an xml file that I have stored in my App_Data directory rather than the web.config file because I do not want my application restarting everytime I manually add a user (small list of 5 authorized users for the CMS section).
