Security :: Alternatives To ADAM & AzMan For AnA?

Dec 20, 2010

we are developing an ASP.Net website for a client and were intending to use ADAM and AzMan for AnA,having successfully used them in the past.Reading the existing documentation it seems to suggest that this is 'old' technology and that neweralternative solutions are available that ought to be used in preference.

Bearing in mind that using SQL server as a user store is not an option for us what should we be considering as an alternative to ADAM & AzMan?

Roles Authentication Works Using Authorization Attribute But Not Via Authorization In Web.config?

Mar 29, 2011

I am using ASP.NET MVC 3 and am trying to do something that should be really straight forward...

My application uses Forms authentication and that is working perfectly for controllers/actions. For example if I decorate either a controller or an action with the attribute below only members of the administrators group can view them:


However I have a folder under the default Scripts folder called Admin. I only want members of the Administrators group to be able to access scripts within this directory so I created a new web.config in the directory with the following inside:


However no matter whether a user is a member of the Administrators group or not they receive a 302 Found message and are then redirected to the login page.

If I change the web.config to allow user="*" then it works. It also works if I add an allow users="Username" for a specific user I am testing with.

Authorization - Why Does Authorization Boot The User To The Login Screen

Jun 28, 2010

When a user attempts to directly visit the url admin.aspx, and they are not an admin, they are redirected to the login page. However, the user then attempts to visit ViewWeek.aspx, it indicates that they are still logged in. Why does this ASP.NET authorization boot the user to the login screen, yet keep the user logged in? I'd rather it just direct the user to the default URL specified in the forms tag.

Here's my Forms Authentication:

<authentication mode="Forms">
<forms name=".ASPXFORMSAUTH" defaultUrl="ViewWeek.aspx" timeout="50000000" />

Security :: AzMan Throws Access Is Denied On Win2008 Server From Website

Mar 22, 2010

We have been using AzMan in development and all was going well until we tried using it our QA website (Windows 2008 Enterprise SP2) and I get: Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))

System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation. ---> System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))
--- End of inner exception stack trace ---

at System.Web.UI.Page.RaisePostBackEvent(IPostBackEventHandler sourceControl, String eventArgument)
at System.Web.UI.Page.ProcessRequestMain(Boolean includeStagesBeforeAsyncPoint, Boolean includeStagesAfterAsyncPoint)

This is when the call to GetRolesForUser(username) is made to the AuthorizationStoreRoleProvider. The website is running under it's own machine service account and when I look at the Security tab in AzMan.msc I can see the service account has Administrator access to the store. I've tried adding to the Reader rights but this doesn't do anything.

This error has not shown up in development on Windows 7 Workstation and interestingly the local store was created in the same way from the website code, so the website service account has full access. I've checked file permissions and played around with the security settings in AzMan.msc and I cannot get it going. At one stage the error changed to "Invalid Handle". There is nothing in the event log so it's very tough to troubleshoot an obscure COM error like this. I guess it could be anything! :)

I also tried impersonating a domain account for the call based on some other posts I read on the net but this didn't work for me. The other interesting thing to note is that the website creates the store (first time) and it actually mnages to create the store without any problems at all. It's just this call to GetRolesForUser that blows out.

Security :: Claims Based Authorization VS Role Permission Based Authorization?

Apr 26, 2010

Our team has recently implemented a role permission based authorization so that we can have granular control. This is similar to what Rockford Lhotka suggests here I have also read about the Claims based authorization which to me looks very similar to what we have. Can some one put in simple terms what the advantages of claims based authorization are.

Architecture :: Best Way To Implement Online Ordering For A Store Store Already Built?

Mar 19, 2010

hey folks I got a general question that maybe some of you can just weigh in. I developed an online store for a client and people place orders online for a food ordering place however I am trying to find the best way to have the orders show up for them at the store. Currently I am sending an email and an autoprint software prints it out which works most of the time but not good enough sometimes it doesn't print. Anyone had similar issues or have other alternative solutions you may have heard off? Like I said the site sends an email to the customer and the store's email account.

C# - Web Service Design - Error Code (store In Source Code Or Store In Database?

Jan 19, 2011

Web service error response (code/message etc) would you store it in a database? or would you keep the error response in a method.By the time I'm done with this, there will be hundreds of error response, maybe in the future, thousands? (I dont know yet, depends how large this web service grows).EDIT: error response is the response returned back to the application via the web service, (not to be confused with error logging).

IIS Ignores Authorization In Web.config?

Sep 2, 2010

I have a problem using windows authentication and the authorization-tag in web.config for my application. When I host the application in IIS (both in IIS 6 and IIS 7) the authorization-tag is ignored. When I run the application in development server that comes with visual studio 2010, it works perfect.

Why will it not work in IIS? And how to solve it?

Authentication And Authorization Options?

Sep 4, 2010

I have the usual requirement of implementing Authentication and Authorization. I used to implement it using custom code where I have Users, Roles, Role_Pages, User_Pages, and User_Roles. So this way we can give a certain user roles (that group multiple pages) and/or directly define access to certain pages. All that with the ability to specify fine grained permissions like the ability to Add/Edit/Delete records in those pages.

My question: How easy is it to implement this using Forms Authentication and what advantage does that give over implementing a custom solution. I am also concerned with knowing if there would be any advantage when it comes to securing from session hijacking and against spoofing where an attacker could replay requests and impersonate legit users. Would Forms Authentication have any advantage there, or is it only SSL that can secure against that (which makes both approaches equal in that regard).

ASP MVC Elegant UI And ModelBinder Authorization?

Apr 29, 2010

We know that authorization's stuff is a cross cutting concern, and we do anything we could to avoid merge business logic in our views. But I still not find an elegant way to filter UI components (e.g. widgets, form elements, tables, etc) using the current user roles without contaminate the view with business logic. same applies for model binding.

Form: Product Creation
Role Administrator

Is allowed to see and modify the Name field
Is allowed to see and modify the Price field
Is allowed to see and modify the Discount

Role Administrator assistant

Is allowed to see and modify the Name
Is allowed to see and modify the Price

Fields shown in each role are different, also model binding needs to ignore the discount field for 'Administrator assistant' role.

ASP MVC Authorization For Dynamic Path

Dec 6, 2010

I am using forms authentication with ASP.NET MVC. Within web.config at application level I can set the paths that I require authentication to as follows;

<location path="subdir1">
<allow users ="?" />

subdir1 is folder name within the Views folder. This works for the web page routing as [URL] However, if my subdir1 is under another dynamically created route, this setting does not work. For instance; [URL] does not request authentication. dynamic is created at runtime and web.config does not know about it at application start but it should not care about it, I just want it to ask for authentication whenever there is an access to subdir1 route. Is there any way that I can set the location's path attribute for this case? or do you have any other way to solve this issue?
