Security :: Single Authentication For Multiple Applications?

Nov 10, 2010

I have three web applications

,Second and Third applications are accessed throught the first,So Authentication (form authentication) is happening from the first application only , all are deployed on same IIS with seperate virtual directory



1. Localhost/Hr


, I used the same Entires in both <machineKey> and
<forms> Elements in webconfig file of all applications,

Applications are working fine and Page.User.Identity are available in all applications but once loginUrl and defaultUrl entry is changed to actual name other than localhost

Multiple Applications On A Single Site - Session And Forms Authentication Scope?

Mar 7, 2011

We're using ASP.NET and IIS 6.0. I realise that the definitions of applications, websites and virtual directories are ill-defined in IIS 6, and changed a lot in IIS 7. However, I'm stuck with IIS 6.0 for now.

We have a single web site defined in IIS, and a number of separate sub-sites in Virtual Directories.

The scheme looks like this:-



site1, site2, ... are virtual directories in IIS 6.0, under the "Default Web Site".

I need to use ASP.NET sessions and forms authentication in most of these sites, and I don't want them to share authentication data or session information at all.

Both the mechanisms currently depend on cookies. However, the cookies created by default use the same name, and have a path of "/" in the browser, meaning the sites' cookies will clash with each other.

Without changing the default name for each cookie, how can I enforce separation between my sub-sites? Do I need to change the virtual directories for IIS 6 "Applications"? Or is there some way in code to enforce a more limited scope for the cookies?

Configuration :: Single Domain Multiple Applications?

Feb 17, 2011

We are having a project which is for various online application systems for an educational institute. (Asp.Net 2.0 Web Site)

initially we developed all applications in single project with proper folder structure. but now we want to make each application as separate product.

all applications share single authentication(Obviusly this is single project) want to keep that way only.

I want to split project in smaller projects but want to keep shared authentication so how should i orgnise this project in IDE.

Also i need guidence on hosting such project

i should make small projects within single solution file. and at the time of publish amke single virtual directory to host the root project(login.aspx etc) and in subdirectories i should host other projects. so this way SSO(single sign on) across applications is possible ..

Security :: Single Point Of Entry For 2 Web Applications?

Oct 29, 2010

I already have 2 web applications running. both of them are using membership and accessing the same database but their application names are different. so basically in my aspnet_Users table, i have users with different applicationIDs and in my aspnet_Applications table I have 2 records in there. so i have 2 separate login locations


What my the business wants is to only have a single point of entry. so they want something like this


and by verifying the username and password pair, my code should be able to route to the appropriate app and bypass its login form. (don't be concerned about the duplicate username between applications, it's been taken cared of)

so I'd like to solicit suggestions from you how should I implement this without modifying my existing setup? and where should I place this login web form in my website? this is the current site structure:

Security :: Share Authentication Cookie Between V3.5 And V4.0 Applications

Nov 6, 2010

I have a bunch of applications that currently share the authentication cookie in v3.5.

We're in the process of upgrading to 4.0 and also upgrading the applications as a whole. I have 1 done, and would love to deploy it. However, as soon as I do, I lose my sharing of authentication cookie in that application.

In each web.config, my machine key is declared. I removed the actual keys to protect the innocent. :)

<machineKey validationKey="..." decryptionKey="..." validation="SHA1"/>
<authentication mode="Forms">
<!-- DEV Server -->
<forms enableCrossAppRedirects="true" loginUrl="Logon.aspx" name=".COOKIENAMEHERE" protection="All" path="/" slidingExpiration="true" timeout="1440"/>

both applications are password protected using Windows authentication.

App1/default.aspx has a <img src="/App2/somefile.aspx">

Now what happens when i open App1 is that i get the credentials prompt, but because App2 is also protected, the HTTP GET for the img requires me to authenticate, in other words i get two prompts.

Is it possible to do something so that the authentication is for so that both App1 and App2 consider the user authenticated?

Now after authenticating under /v2 users keep getting redirected back to as doesnt see them as authenticated anymore.

Security :: Single Sign-On SSO With Forms Authentication?

May 20, 2010

I have this tutorial on Single Sign On with forms authentication.The following link:


I did item number 1 which is "SSO for parent and child application in the virtual sub-directory" and it works fine BUT I can't seem to stay logged in because each time I leave and reenter the application I get redirected to the login page.

Is this an inherent feature of forms authentication?

I am running this on IIS 6 on a windows server 2003.

Security :: Two Separate Authentication And Authorization In A Single Website?

Jul 8, 2010

I have a web application that requires two separate authentication and authorization.

In the root webconfig i configure the security for authenticating and authorizing public users

I also need authentication and authorization for the back end. That is the administrator who will manage the web application.

For this i have a subdirectory "admin" that will contain all the functionality for the back end. In the "admin" subdirectory i have a second web.config and i tried to add all the security for the administrator but it does not let me

Is it possible to have to separate authorization and authentication for a single web application. All the details will be save in microsoft's sql tables generate (for example aspnet... tables)

Security :: Refreshing Single Sign-on Forms Authentication?

Jun 10, 2010

I've had no problems implementing CAS however I have hit an issue with its timeout. It appears my Uni has the timeout set to about 15 minutes. Some forms (specifically ones for our HR department) take a lot longer than 15 minutes to fill out. The result being that when they click the Save/Submit/whatever button, CAS refreshes its login, sends them back to the same page, and resets the page to default (since it's essentially reaccessing it).

Is there any easy way to force my SSO to refresh at set intervals? I tried to use another page (embedded in an iframe that I added to all .Master pages) whose page load contained:

Security :: How To Authenticate Multiple Applications Within 1 Aspnetdb Database

Feb 9, 2010

I currently have a website up and running and working correctly with using the out-of-the box authentication with an aspnetdb sqlserver database. I have users on this site and am very hesitant to change anything with this database or the web.config file from the working site for fear of wrecking it

So, my challenge is that I need to authenticate a separate application using the same aspnetdb.mdf file without any crossover to my 1st application. I've noticed that the ApplicationName that is currently in my aspnetdb database for the working application is just "/". I know that I'll need to have 2 separate entries in the aspnet_Applications table to define these two applications and then somehow register those names within their respective web.config files - but wanted to have step by step instructions on how to this so as to not "break" the 1st working application that is already live.

Can anyone point me to a document on what changes I will need to make?

Also, with the default create user wizards I'm using, how will it know to create the new user information with the correct application ID so that the user information from one application is not visible to managers of the second application and vice/versa?

C# - How To Implement Multiple Login/logout-domains, Single Main Domain In Forms Authentication

Jan 25, 2011

i want to have several domains A, B, C where a user can enter his username and password to login to a common main domain D.

So the user goes to A, B or C, enters his username and password, clicks the "login" button, and is then on the main domain D in a logged in/authenticated state. Then the user does the things he wants to do, and then clicks the logout-button and is then returned to the original domain that he came from, be it A, B or C.

What is the best way to do this?

I currently use forms authentication in ASP.NET 4.0 (C#).

Security :: Single Sign On IIS 7 Multiple Application Pool

Oct 20, 2010

We migrated our web server to window server 2008, IIS 7.

We have single sign on application - that we login through one application called "users" and then no need to login to other applications, they all use the same machine key and cookie.

it works fine when all then applications under the same application pool.

but we have one application that is 2005. (the rest are 2003) the user application is in 2003 and that other application is in 2005.

so each application is in a different application pool. -

one pool to 1.1 and other pool to 2.

when I run the 2005 application

I get the login page and after I login I get the following errer:

HTTP 404. The resource you are looking for (or one of its dependencies) could have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable. Please review the following URL and make sure that it is spelled correctly.

Requested Url: /users/Unauthorised.aspx

Important: If I switch the "user" application (the login) to work under the same pool as my 2005 application, then it works fine with the 2005 application,but I get the above error for the 2003 applications

All this happened after we switched to IIS 7 Windows 2008, with IIS 6 it works great!

Security :: Forms Authentication In Multiple Servers

Mar 7, 2011

I have two applications with a single domain name ([URL] and [URL]). First one has been developed in .NET 2 and the other one with .NET 4. I have configured web.config as these steps:

1- I've set the same machine key for both of them.
2- I've set the coockie name.
3- I've set the domain name to "".
4- Also, I've set hardcoded coockie domain name to "" .

Everything was working fine when both of them were running on a single web server. Recently, I've been asked to move to another server. After moving, authentication ticket is not valid on the second server. I tested both of them on a single server again and everything was workinh fine, but in two servers users can't acces to (Authentication Ticket is invalid)

Edited: The second server is a virtual (VMWare) server. I don't have any problem in physical servers. I checked the server's time to be synchronized. I also used fiddler to see if the server does not get the auth ticket and ther ticket is sent to the 2nd server. Note: Servers are located in different networks and maybe proxy or firewall causes this (I've no idea)

Security :: .Net Windows Authentication, Multiple Log In Requests?

Mar 16, 2010

I have a small project I am working on using web developer express, and I am trying to get windows authentication to work with my intranet website project. This website is only to be accessed inside my LAN and not from the internet at all, so I figured windows authentication would be best.What happens when I turn it on (and I've tested this from multiple browsers: IE8, Firefox, Chrome, Safari) is that the website asks the user to log in (via pop up textbox). Not only does it request the user to log in (which I don't think it should, since the login is based on windows authentication and I am on a windows machine already logged into the internal domain) but it requests the user to login multiple times, sometimes I get asked to log in and type in the same username/password combination 12 different times. It seems to me that the asp page is requesting permission to view each individual element and requires authentication to load one object (like an image or text box).

I am severely annoyed. :( I just wanted authentication to work smoothly without any login requests, or at the mostone request.
