Security :: IE7 Privacy Settings Preventing FormsAuthentication.SetAuthCookie From Working?

Mar 29, 2011

Problem: I am using FormsAuthentication.SetAuthCookie(UserId, False)[Snip]Response.Redirect("~/login_pages/home2.aspx") ' Force round trip so that logon works OK to logon a user. It all works fine with other browsers, and IE7 provided that IE7's PRIVACY (originally I had written "Security") setting is Low. However it doesn't work when the PRIVACY setting is Medium (the default).

How do I solve this problem? I would have expected that FormsAuthentication.Authenticate(Userid, password) was the solution, but this doesn't seem to work at all.

Security :: FormsAuthentication RedirectFromLoginPage Change Default.aspx

Oct 14, 2010

I know this post is the same than other around but I can't get it to work the way I want, the thing is that the Login.aspx page have it in a folder not in the root of the directory, also the page that I want to redirect the user to is in the same folder, so far I got this in my web.config file


All pages contained in the Admin folder want it to be protected, the administrator needs to authenticate first, so my question is what I am doing wrong? need to take the Login.aspx and the admin.aspx out of the admin folder?

FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage Does Not Return To Orignal URL?

Jan 5, 2010

I reach my login page with the parameter "returnUrl" set to the URL I was on. Then, I login via OpenID (DotNetOpenAuth), and call FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage(). The login is successful, however I am not returned to the original page I was on.

I'm having the same problem on logout - when I log out I don't remain on the same page, even though the logout link contains the correct "returnUrl" parameter.

What am I doing wrong?

Here is the code snippet. I am returning EmptyResult() after the call to RedirectFromLoginPage, because I don't really know what to do (see this related question)

using (var relayingParty = new OpenIdRelyingParty())
var response = relayingParty.GetResponse();[code]....

Call FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage 10'000 Times?

Dec 30, 2010

Is it OK to call FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage many times?

On login page we test if user is already logged in, and if it is we just redirect him to default page with FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage...

Question is if user sets a script that loads login page 10'000 times, would calling the FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage that many times make problems?

FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage - Fragment Not Preserved On Redirect?

Mar 3, 2010

I have a page, URI looks like this:

When that fragment (#blahtab) is present, some jQuery picks up on that and displays a different section of the page initially. However, that page requires a user to authenticate first. Coming back from the authentication step using FormsAuthentication, the fragment is discarded, regardless of the UrlEncode step.

I don't see the fragment actually sent to the server when I use a debugger on my local machine. Is this standard fare and the fragment is only for the client side?How can I keep that tacked on without writing my own redirection code on the login page?

Alternately, should I use another method to preserve the view of the page?

C# - ASPX FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage Function Is Not Working Anymore

Mar 23, 2010

I have an ASPX web site and I have code in there to redirect from the login page with the call to

"FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage(username, false);" This sends the user from the root website folder to 'website/Admin/'. I have a 'default.aspx' page in 'website/Admin/' and the call to redirect works on a previous version of the website we have running currently, but the one that I am updating on a separate test server is not working. It gives me the error "Directory Listing Denied. This Virtual Directory does not allow contents to be listed." I have this in the config file:
<allow users="*" />

under the "authentication" option and...

<location path="Admin">

for the location of Admin.Also, there is no difference in the code between the web.config, Login.aspx, or the default.aspx files on the current server and the one on the test server, so I am confused as to why the redirect will not work on both. It even works in the Visual Studio server environment, for which the code is also identical.

How To Pass FormsAuthentication.SetAuthCookie From Data Access Layer Class To WebService To JavaScript

Jan 29, 2010

I am using DotNetOpenAuth in my ASP.Net Website. I have modified it to work with Facebook Connect as well, using the same methods and database structures. Now I have come across a problem.

I have added a Facebook Connect button to a login page. From that HTML button, I have to somehow pull information from the Facebook Connect connection and pass it into a method to authenticate the user. The way I am currently doing this is by:

Calling a Javascript Function on the onlogin function of the FBML/HTML Facebook Connect button. The javascript function calls a Web service to login, which it does correctly. The web service calls my data access layer to login. And here is the problem: FormsAuthentication.SetAuthCookie is set at the data access layer. The Cookie is beyond the scope of the user's page and therefore is not set in the browser. This means that the user is authenticated, but the user's browser is never notified. So, I need to figure out if this is a bad way of doing what I need or if there is a better way to accomplish what I need. I am just not sure and have been trying to find answers for hours.

Security :: Password Encryption Using Formsauthentication?

Dec 1, 2010

Just a quick question i've been asked to look at enhancing security but encrypting passwords we store in a db table, essentially the data thats linked to the user account isnt sensitive however its more to stop someone reading passwords out of the table directly etc

I've read multiple ways of implimenting hashing etc i've started using FormsAuthentication.HashPasswordForStoringInConfigFile
//create new salt and update the password
Hashtable newInfo = new Hashtable();
newInfo["salt"] = GenerateFriendlyPassword(5);
string tmppass = FormsAuthentication.HashPasswordForStoringInConfigFile(txtNewPass1.Text.ToString() + newInfo["salt"].ToString(), "SHA1");
newInfo["passwordHash"] = tmppass;

Generate friendly password returns a 5 char string based on a random position in a valid char array containing a - z and 0 - 9At present the functionality is at page level in the code behind, re this is the forms authentication HashPasswordForStoringInConfigFile function thread safe? Or do i need to look at implimenting this in a different wayCheers appreciate your response as im always jubious about multi threading etc,

Security - FormsAuthentication - Unable To Redirect After Login?

Aug 9, 2010

I am using Forms Authentication in my VS-2005 website.In case of wrong credentials or while explicitly requesting protected pages the website is able to redirect user to login page. However, when correct login credentials are provided the application is not able to redirect the user to the desired page.While debugging I found that 'Request.IsAuthenticated=False' just before I redirect the user to the desired page.While coding I thought that this property will be set to true automatically after I generate the Authentication ticket. So do I need to set it explicitly inside the submit button click on Login page after validation?BTW I have not used the 'GetAuthcookie', 'SetAuthCookie' or 'RedirectFromLoginPage' methods.
I am posting the code inside the submit button click on the Login page as well as the Authentication and Authorization tags in web.config.

<authentication mode="Forms">
<forms name=".ASPXFORMSDEMO" loginUrl="~/Login.aspx" cookieless="UseCookies" path="~/"/>
<deny users="?"/>

Protected Sub btnsubmit_click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnsubmit.Click
'here first validate if the user is valid user

Security :: Custom Membership Provider And FormsAuthentication?

Sep 9, 2010

I've implemented my custom membership provider. I use third server for authentication (call web method that validates user/password). I need this user/password for retrieve some additional data from this server. MVC uses FormsAuthentication and cookie for keep 'login state' by default. It works well when I login on site first time. But when I close and open site again sometime after, cookie keeps it 'login'but I don't have credential for access to server data. I can change cookieless attribute (to 'UseUri' for example) in configure file but in this case I should login again if I open second tab with this app in same browser.My questions:

Is way to call SingOut of FormsAuthentication (remove authentication ticket from browser) when user closes mvc app?Is secure way to pass user/password data through session? Because server is unstable and interrupt connection often and app should have possibility for silent reconnect.

Security :: Formsauthentication Timeout And 2 Login Pages?

Jun 29, 2010

My client wants 2 separate login pages for an ASP.Net app, one for regular users, one for support staff. I am using the standard FormAuthentication component for authentication. Is it possible to redirect a regular user to one login page after a timeout, and also to redirect an admin user to a different page after a timeout? The loginUrl attribute of <forms> in web.config is read-only, and cannot be edited at runtime.

Regular User -> Timeout -> Login.aspx
Support User ->Timeout -> SupportLogin.aspx
