I just begin creating a website for an organization. First page to be displayed in the login page. I dont have any knowledge in ASP.NET Security. On Login page, i want to display UserName field as disabled with the useralias of the user who currently logged into Windows. Password user has to provide and it should be that user's windows password.
How do i validate that password that user has entered is his windows password?
I am attempting to convert an online game i have written in ASP into ASP.NET,, but I am failing at a very early and probably a very amateurish stage.
I am using a Sample ASPX project. There is an ASPNETDB database included, when i register my username is added to the DB along with a userID and various other fields. This is stored in a table called aspnet_Users.
I have created a new table called tblClubs, which stores information such as ClubName, StadiumCapacity etc I added a field called 'Owner' and this is directly related to the UserName field in the aspnet_Users table
What I am trying to solve is to show user specific information from the database, based on their LoginID.
My username is Laclerque and my club is called Racing Mongoose, the stadium capacity is 9500.. the information for each User needs to be different and just show the information that is relevant to them.
obviously in the longer term, there is going to be 100's of these associations required for the full game, but not until i can get my head around the basics of how to set this information. I tend to work better when i can see a working sample, and then adapt things to suit my needs.
I'm trying to allow logged user who are in department XYZ to perform some task for my third party App. I have two SQL tables named Users & UserList. The third party app (GoldMine) graps the USERNAME from the Users table and store it as UserID which I then referecnce SessionID. The UserList table has two columns (GM_UserName & Department) which I'm interested in. When a user login into the 3rd party app (GoldMine), i then compare the USERNAME (from Users table) to GM_UserName (from UserList table) and see whether GM_UserName is in = 'Dept XYZ'. Take a look at the SQL query below.
sqlDept = "SELECT USERNAME FROM Users LEFT JOIN UserList ON UserList.GM_UserName=Users.UserName WHERE UserList.Department ='Dept XYZ'"
I'm able to do this.
If Session("Userid") = "TestUser1" Or Session("UserID") = "TestUser2" Then Do this Else Do that End If BUT unable to do this... If user's Department = 'Department XYZ' Then Do This Else Do that End IF
I´m building a home page where logged in users shall buy products. To be able to get to the buy page the user already has to be logged in. But when he shall execute the buy he has to reenter his password again to check the user a second time. How do I check if his entered password matches his user password? I´m using the ASP Membership library and I have passwordFormat="Hashed".
I'm using the ChangePassword method of membership provider to change the password and one of the requirement before calling the changepassword is to retrieve the current password. But I'm getting error:padding is invalid and cannot be removedbelow is my web.config:
I have an ASP.Net 4.0 application that is using Forms Authentication and ActiveDirectoryMembershipProvider. It authenticates against Active Directory running on Windows Server 2008 R2.I use ChangePassword control for changing passwords.When the user changes the password he can log on for some time with the old password. My client feels this is a security problem with the application. Is there any way to make sure the old password does not work after the user changes it?Also, if I do iisreset on the web server, the old password stops working. The password must be cached somewhere in the web app.
I am a newbie and using Visual Web Developer 2008 Express Edition developing a website with some SQL database and a membership folder.
The membership folder security was set via Website/ASP.NET Configuration and with Permission Deny for Anonymous users, and a user id and password was created.
However when running the website and login with the created userid and password, it failed to log in with error message "Your login attempt was not successful. Please try again." I suspect that the system could not find the ASPNETDB.MDF even though it is in the App_Data folder.
I have separately developed another website with Membership and User Login by following the example in ASP.NET Walkthrough in Learn Web Devbelopment, and it works ok.
Is there a way to reset a user's password while logged in as an administrator? I just had to delete a user and re-create him in order to achieve the same affect of resetting his password, so I'm wondering if there is a better way to reset a password.
I've created a login page but when I try to sign in with user name and password, it will not execute.I've gone over the process numerous times and have deleted the user (me) and re-created the user (me).Does anyone have any clues as to what I might be over-looking.
A question has been raised concerning password recovery revealing valid user ids. Stage 1 of the password recovery asks for a userid and when progressing to stage 2 will display an error message 'Invalid user id'. In theory this would allow valid user id'sto be identified.Is there a setting we are missing? Something that would allow the user id and question to be asked, then a message saying the 'User/Question combination is invalid'.
