Security :: LDAP Throws Invalid Credentials With Valid Credentials Supplied?

Feb 1, 2011

I'm working on an ASP.NET project for the first time in about three years; in the meantime I've been working with Python/Django, PHP and Obj-C. Anyways, picked it right back up... except something that is totally killing me right now, and I have a feeling it must be staring me in the face:

I'm trying to bind to an LDAP server, for the purpose of authenticating users. The way it works here is, you bind on your own credentials, use that to find the Distinguished Name of the user you're authenticating, then you bind again on their DN and their password. If the bind is successful, the password was correct and the user can be authenticated.

Here's the problem - the first bind (on the fixed credentials, the ones with the ability to search for users and their subtrees) works fine. The search works fine. The second bind fails, no matter what, with the LDAP error INVALID_CREDENTIALS. This happens even when completely valid credentials are supplied.

Here's the code, with the usernames and passwords redacted, of course...

VS 2010 - 401 Unauthorized / Access Is Denied Due To Invalid Credentials

Nov 3, 2011

I'm setting up a new site on a new server. I created the site in the IIS manager and pointed it to my site directory. But, I now receive this error each time I try to navigate to the site.

I didn't receive this error on the other server, so I'm a little confused. I looked this up, but most of the information I've found is about configuring the users that people have setup. But, this site won't be secured like that. No one will need to log in.

Security - Secure Way To Validate The User's Credentials Against AD?

Mar 1, 2010

In my environment, we use Active Directory as our password repository. I'm writing an app that uses the users windows session (windows auth) to authenticate the user. This is working well, but I need to provide a way for users to log in as a different user. I setup a web form to accept a username and password. My question is this, I need a secure way to validate the user's credentials against AD. I cant have the credentials passed as clear text. Ive come across the impersonate user functions, but i'm leary because you have to pass a clear text password into the password field. I know I could also use LDAP, but without a certificate, I know plain LDAP is relatively insecure. Can someone point me in the right direction of a more secure solution to query AD with the credentials?

Security :: Creating New User Changes Logged In Credentials

Nov 23, 2010

In my application, I have users request accounts, and then an admin goes in to approve or reject the account. When the admin approves the account, the create user wizard is used. After the user is created, I set the new user's role, and update a few other items in my database for user tracking, and send out an email to notify the new user of their account status. Here's the kicker: Once this new user is created, the admin, is now logged in as the new user. How is this happening? And how do I stop it? Here is my CreatedUser code, scrubbed of non-pertinent code.

Security :: How To Make An IIS Page Prompt For AD Credentials

Apr 1, 2010

We have an IIS/ASP web page from a vendor that we have just dropped onto a webserver within our company. The ASP pages do not come with any sort of authentication built in, so I am trying to configure the site to prompt for credentials before being accessible. I would like the site to prompt for the credentials in all cases (ie. I don't want Internet Explorer to pass through the credentials of the logged in user). I want authorization to this site to be allowed only to members of a certain security group with Active Directory.

Is there a way to do this? I'm not really an IIS guy, nor an ASP developer, so I'm kind of feeling my way through the dark here.

Based on some searching, I have tried adding the following to the web.config file:


I have also installed the IIS URL authorization role service, and have tried playing around with the authentication settings within IIS, to no avail.

I am using IIS7 on Server 2008.

Security :: Get The System To Actually Prompt The User To Login With Credentials?

Feb 5, 2010

I am the web developer at a medical clinic. I have 2 scenarios going on:

First, I have a physicians only component of our employee portal to allow access to only physician shareholders or physician non-shareholders. My structure is built like:

Physicians Only

The Affiliations folder is only going to be accessible by the physician shareholders. Therefore, I have security roles set for Physicians Only and Affiliations. When I test, the security is set correctly on the folders. However, when I try to login as different people, all with different roles, I have to login with user name and password, twice, before the system allows me in.

Secondly, I have secured areas within the employee portal also. However, when I navigate to them, the system doens't usually prompts me to login. If it does prompt me to login, it too, is on the second try. So how does it know who I am? And more importantly, how do I get the system to actually prompt the user to login with their credentials?

Security :: Using Different Windows Login Credentials Whithin A Webpage?

Is the above possible? Basically i need it as I am creating a site where users can upload files to a shared network drive which is secure and has a system account

When a user clicks on upload file, If possible I would like the page to automatically kind of log in with the system account, copy the files and then log off. I know I could achieve something similar mapping a drive but would prefer not to do that for these reasons;

- Security risk if the mapped drive for some reason isnt removed by the code

- User may not have the drive letter free.

Security :: Writing A Login Page That Checks Against AD Credentials?

Sep 8, 2010

I'm trying to write a simple login page, that will allow my users to login to my site using their Active Directory credentials (using their username / password we give them through AD).

I want to do 2 things with the login:

1. I want to check the username / password against our AD and verify the person is a valid user within the directory.

2. I also want to store the entry within a global variable so when the user fills out one of the forms within the site it can Insert the data into a SQL table i have running.

** we are using this site to do Setup Change Request Forms / Termination forms etc. and I just want to verify the person signing off on the form is the person logged into the machine -- use it as an "electronic signature per say".

I'm using a 2.0 approach - as i only have access to visual studio 2005 and i'm more of a vb programmer then a c#.

If anyone has any examples or can walk me through how to go about writing out this page that would be great.

Security :: IIS6 User Credentials Not Passed To SQL Server?

Jan 20, 2010

I have an 2.0 application on an IIS6 server with a second server running SQL.

The problem I have is that I can't use Integrated Windows Authentication to authenticate against the SQL server, instead the IIS passes its machine name (DOMAINMachineName$) to the SQL server. Of course I can add the necessary permissions to the machine name account on SQL, but I want to use the local user credentials in Integrated Windows Authentication to authenticate against SQL.

I have tried to find some reading/articles online but apart from a basic understanding I can't find the details I need to implement into my application. All I have found is that IIS doesn't pass the credentials onto a remote machine when using Integrated Windows Authentication, and Kerberos should be used instead. I have no experience of Kerberos or how to use it in so I am hoping it can be done using Integrated Windows Authentication or be pointed to some good easy to understand articles on using/implementing Kerberos.
