Security :: LDAP The Authentication Mechanism Is Unknown?

I am working on Web application which get the authentication details from the Active direcoty using LDAP

when I am using the function DirectorySearcher.FindOne() it gives this error message (The authentication mechanism is unknown), and I relized that I should put this line in the web.config file ( <identity impersonate="false"/> ), then this problem will be solved.

but at the same time I should put true value to the same attribute to get the correct result when I am calling this function


otherwise the returened value will be (NT AUTHORITYNETWORK SERVICE) not the authenticated user name.

Active Directory/LDAP :: .net And Ldap Unknown Error (0x80005000)?
I am trying to connect to my college LDAP directory using ASP.NET. This LDap does not have security as it returns only user demographic information.What i am trying to do is, i am trying to look up all the information for
the user with user id 'testuser'. The following is the code for my aspx page:

Dim oRoot As DirectoryEntry = New
Dim oSearcher As DirectorySearcher = New DirectorySearcher(oRoot) [code]...

The above code fails at the line "oResult = oSearcher.FindOne" and gives me an error which is useless: "Unknown error (0x80005000)"

Security :: Running Application Under The Security Context Of The Logged In User (LDAP Authentication)
We are using membership provider for LDAP authentication. It is working as it should.

But what all configuration settings I have to do so that
all the future requests to this application run under the security context of the Logged in user account not through the some default user set in IIS.

We need to have this working because all the permissions on the database are based on the logged in user.

We are using form authentication for LDAP authentication. And having impersonation = true in web.config.

public bool IsAuthenticated(string domain, string username, string password)
// string domainAndUsername = domain + @"" + username;
string domainAndUsername = "http://localhost:389
// DirectoryEntry entry = new DirectoryEntry(_path, domainAndUsername, password);// _path = LDAP://localhost:389/dc=example,dc=com
DirectoryEntry entry = new DirectoryEntry("LDAP://localhost:389",domainAndUsername,"rJsmitH");
Object obj = entry.NativeObject;
DirectorySearcher search = new DirectorySearcher(entry);
search.Filter = "(SAMAccountName=" + username + ")";

SearchResult result = search.FindOne();

if(null == result)
return false;
_path = result.Path;
_filterAttribute = (String)result.Properties["cn"][0];
catch (System.Exception ex)
throw new Exception("Error authenticating user. " + ex.Message);
return true;

I got exception at line Object obj = entry.NativeObject; and error message is: Invalid dn syntax specified. how can i take a right dn syntax? I tried some domain name such as: LDAP://localhost:389, [URL], ... but I still get this error

Difference Between Client Browser's Submit Mechanism And Postback Mechanism?
While going through MSDN I found that in button properties useSubmitBeheviour there is written that if useSubmitBeheviour is true then it cause the Button control to use the browser's submit mechanism and false then the ASP.NET page framework adds client-side script to the page to post the form to the server.

C# - Set Up Silent Authentication Using LDAP / AD
We're using a CMS product called Immediacy, which claims it can handle silent authentication using LDAP / AD but just can't get the thing to work.

point me to a good article or post that lays out the steps to do the above (assuming it's achievable)?

Basically, we need to secure pages on our intranet, and, as our firm is full of 'very important people' who 'don't have time to log in' this is an almost essential requirement.

LDAP Authentication From .NET Using Proxy User?
We want to use a "proxy user" to connect to an LDAP server (Active Directory, Novell, or otherwise) and then make sure that the user trying to log into the application has typed in an acceptable user name and password. I have got the code for connecting to LDAP just fine, but I'm at a loss as to how to check the user name and password. Can you do this through an LDAP query?

Here's the guts of my code so far:

Public Function Authenticate(ByVal UserName As String, ByVal Password As String)
Dim LDAPServer As String = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("LDAPServer")
Dim proxyUsername As String = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("LDAPProxyUser")
Dim proxyPassword As String = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("LDAPProxyPassword")
Dim entry As DirectoryEntry
entry = New DirectoryEntry(LDAPServer, proxyUsername, proxyPassword)
'This performs the LDAP authentication'
Dim obj As Object = entry.NativeObject
Dim search As New DirectorySearcher(entry)
search.Filter = String.Format("(SAMAccountName={0})", UserName)

'How do I check the password now?'

Dim result As SearchResult = search.FindOne()

If result Is Nothing Then Throw New Exception("Unable to find SAMAccountName")

C# - Forms Authentication Against Active Directory - LDAP Protocol
I need to create a web page that authenticates users against an existing active directory. The domain is actually a cloud computing configuration where there is a domain controller and multiple other servers on the stack.

I understand that objects from the System.DirectoryServices namespace can be used. However, I cant seem to path the code to the active directory through the LDAP:// address. There doesnt seem to be any communication going on. I suspect there is some initial configuration necessary or security measures blocking the communication.

I am working with this example from MSDN:

I get an error that says the server is not operational.

Active Directory/LDAP :: AD Authentication Using Forms - Dealing With Roles
I am not really sure if this post should go in the Security section or the Active Directory / LDAP section....with that being said I am looking for advice on how to best accomplish my goal(s), I am working with FORMS authentication, using active directory (across 2 domains). I have got authenticating working correctly based upon the article at: [URL] now - my questions:

1. What is the best way to deal with roles? What I would like to do is restrict access to my application so that only the users that are authorized to use the application can login - not everyone in the AD. My gut feeling tells me I would use an AD group for this. Furthermore, a subset of these users in this group will be allowed to access the data maintenance forms

2. Ideally, in a perfect world, I would like to write this authentication piece as a separate project - this way it could be used for multiple projects - the only thing different would be the AD groups it would be checking. Is there a way that I could set which AD groups or roles in each projects web.config?

Am I approaching this the correct way? What is typically done?

I have sharedand given security access to everything under the sun on this server to that particular folder and still no luck. My dev workstation with VisualStudio 2010has no probelm saving a file to that directory.So it has to be something with the web server account. I am using Windows Authentication.

This could be very straight forward for some of you, but I got caught up. I am doing very simple test - browsing from IIS Manager to see the default page or "under Construction", however I am being challenged to provide my login credential . When I provide my login credential, I am able to see the default page. I wanted to see the default page without providing my credential since Enable anoymous access + basic authentication I am simply wanted to see the default page asit is working on other servers except this one. I have included screen print to make sure may question is clear.

I'm developing an internal booking sytem. Users log in to the sytem and can view existing bookings and search for bookings. They can also create new or edit existing bookings. When completing such actions I need a confirmation prior to completing the booking or updating the recorded.

How can I achieve this? The system is internam and I'm using Forms Authentication. I an also using roles as som of the admin forms can only be viewed by administrators.

Security :: Windows Authentication - Get Role Security In Web Config File To Coincide With Controls
We useSharepoint to control our websites. We build the sites,then load them into the sharepoint server. My question is if I use windows authentication, how can I get my role security in my web config file to coencide with the controls that use the Forms authentication. Is there a differenence?Our security uses a session variable for security but there is no where to set up their permissions except in active directory. I hope this makes sense because I would like to implement the LoginView with Role groups but how can I give them the role="administrator"? Do I have to go into active directory and give them these permissions(would take awhile due to the size of the company)? Or do I have to set up priveladges in the web.config file for each user(difficult I think)?

Security :: Web.sitemap Security Trimming And 3rd Party Authentication?
I understand that we can easily secure the menu pages by enabling SecurityTrimming and putting role information in web.sitemap.

But my problem is that we have to use a 3rd party authentication piece. The ASP.NET application gets the UserId and roles from the authentication module.

I need to show/hide ASP.NET pages based on the incoming user's roles.

Is it possible somehow to use web.sitemap with these roles?

Or should I come up with my own way to map a web page to role/s?
