Keep That Password Encrypted In Code While Checking It Against A Data Store?

Jan 18, 2011

Even with https enabled, you can write a password to the event log in code-behind. Any way to keep that password encrypted in code while you're checking it against a data store?

(using Login control)

(couldn't add comment to Andrew's answer, so I'm putting it here)
NTLM uses the username/password of the machine the user is logged into right? For this, I was thinking using ActiveDirectory on the server as the data store. It would have a diferrent un/pw than what the user is currently signed in to their machine as.

DataSource Controls :: Save Encrypted Password Into Database Table?

Jun 14, 2010

I'm using ASP.NET 3.5 and Visual Studio 2008 C#.

I'm creating a website and currently making tests for registration. I've manage to create a registration form in the web site and save what the user inputs in the textboxes into a sql server 2008 database.

One of the fields is Password. What I want know is how do you save the password into the database but the database stores it encrypted. That way I'm just able to see the password encrypted. Then when I make a log-in form how to validate the password input by the user with the encrypted one and give a succesful login.

Security :: Encrypted Password - Sort Of Encryption Or Decryption In Order To Verify The Credentials

Jun 16, 2010

For our website, we have decided we would like to maintain our user passwords as encrypted binary data in our database. We are using ASP.NET 3.5 to host our site and SQL Server Express 2008 for the database, both running on the same server. When a user logs in and submits a username and password, there will need to be some sort of encryption or decryption in order to verify the credentials. To me, it would appear that there are 3 ways to do this:

1)[C# Encyrption] On User creation, perform encryption in the Web App and submit the encrypted password to the database. To verify credentials at Login, perform the same encryption on the submitted password and ensure that it matches the value stored in the database.

2)[SQL Encryption] On User creation, submit the plain-text password to the database and have it perform one of the SQL encryption variants during INSERT. To verify credentials at Login, have the database perform decryption on the password during the SELECT statement, and compare the plain-text submitted password to the one in the database.

3)[Mix] On User creation, submit the plain-text password to the database, and have it perform one of the SQL encryption variants during INSERT. To verify credentials at Login, perform the same encryption algorithm used by SQL on the submitted password ( is this possible? ), and ensure that it matches the value stored in the database.

Does anybody have an opinion as to which of these options is best? Number 1) is the most familiar to me, and would be the easiest to use with LINQ to SQL ( which is our current data model ), so I am leaning towards that. But if there are better options I would love to know about them.

Security :: Convert Existing User Database From Hashed To Encrypted

Aug 12, 2010

I've taken over a website which has around 3000 users registered using the standard membership provider on a SQL database. When the website was set up there were a lot of gaps in the system and we have a lot of tidying up to do of users with the same email addresses etc and invalid addresses so i'm just starting to look at how i can wrap all of this up and make administering the user accounts easier.

At the moment the account passwords are stored in "Hashed" format set in the web.config and obviously this doesn't allow for password retrieval. I want to know whether there is a way of converting all of these passwords from a hashed format to an encrypted format thus allowing me to create a password recovery page that doesn't then send the user a new password which is quite often something like "a*ns7#<3lx"

Ideally i'd like to convert all of these if that is possible so that I do a much simpler password retrieval system. If this is not possible can you tell me how i go about setting the passwordreset value not to contain all sorts of non-alpha/numberic characters?

Security :: Best Way To Store A Users Password And Username?

Jul 8, 2010

I am writing a simple plugin for IE. I need to store a password and username setting for the user who uses the plugin. I know that I can store the username/password in the registry, I can manually encrypt it using the encription classes with .NET, or I can store it in a config file and encrypt the config file. I was wondering if there is a specific pattern/mechanism that I should use to store password and username.

Security :: Database Password Encryption?

Mar 8, 2011

Can anyone help with best practice for storage of database passwords/connectionstrings for ASP.NET applications? Most tutorials suggest storing the connection string (along with the password) in Web.config. I don't like this solution because the connectionstring is visible to anyone working on the application (although I appreciate it is secured from the consumer). You can use aspnet_regiis to encrypt sections of Web.config, but then surely anyone with access to the web server could easily decrypt it anyway. For an enterprise level application what should I be doing?I could store it in Web.config and encrypt with my own key, but then would that offer any advantage over aspnet_regiis, because the key would have to reside on the web server anyway?

so I will admit this is a pretty stupid question. To my defense, I have never done it before. So take pity. I followed Joe Stagner's video on using the built-in authentication. Now, I would like to query a database using codebehind to verify if the user exists. I am clueless. Yes, I have a connection string already.

here is the decrypt function

byte[] cipherBytes = Convert.FromBase64String(cipherText);
