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?

Configuration :: Webservice WebConfig File Not Recognized By Windows App?

Mar 2, 2011

I have created a webservice, which debugs fine with no errors, and published this on my localhost server for testing.

I have created a windows app which calls the webservice but am hitting problems as soon as I reach the point where the webservice tries to connect to its database.

The connectionstring is held within the web.config file of the webservice as

<add name="MyConnectionName" providerName="System.Data.ProviderName" connectionString="server=MyServerName; database=MyDataBaseName;uid=MyUser;pwd=MyPassword;"/>

and called within the code by using the statement

>> System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["MyConnectionName"].ConnectionString

, and as I said before, this works perfectly when debugging the webservice application directly.

However, the windows application is not seeing the connection properly, if I use the statement as above I get a debug error stating that it is a NULL reference. If I change it to

>> System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings[0].ConnectionString

I no longer get a debug error, but the connection is not made. On testing the above code it believes the name for connection 0 is "localSqlServer" and in both the web app and the webservice the error below is returned.

>>An attempt to attach an auto-named database for file \MyServerMyDirectoryMyProjectMyProjectApp_Dataaspnetdb.mdf failed. A database with the same name exists, or specified file cannot be opened, or it is located on UNC share.

why the windows application see's the correct connection string code as null? Is there additional security I need to add for the web.config file to be accessible? Or does the connection strings need to be relicated within the app.config of the windows app?

Both applications are written in C# and I use Visual Studio 2010, ASP.Net version 4.0.30319

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 :: Load Balancer / How To Make Cookie As Secure In Site

Oct 28, 2010

I have a doubt regarding secure cookie.

I have four servers 2 App Server(behind firewall) and 2 webservers and each server is accessing through Load Balancer.

App Server is a modules for Data Access layer and webserver is for Presentation layer.

My Issue is My Load Balancer has Secure certificate installed but certificate is not installed on servers and I want to make cookie as secure in site , as per my understanding " cookie should be set as secure only for SSL site other ways new session will get create every time" so should I install SSL certificate on webserver to make my cookie as secure or will it work properly even if only Load Balance has SSL.

Configuration :: Xml File To Store User Credentials?

Oct 6, 2010

I'm looking for a way I can store username and password credentials in a web.config file & use these values to re-direct to another web service, once these are authenticated.

The process is as follows:

* User logs into our website with required credentials

* There is a link on our website which invokes a new webservice

* The webservice is a paid for subscribed service (which requires authentication)

* Usually, there is a web form for this type of web service but since we need to steam-line the process from initial application logon, the logon page is not required.

* So when the link on our website is clicked, the new webservice is invoked. Authentication should be done by using the credentials in the web.config file and user is redirected to webservice (avoiding logon page)

Could someone tell me using pseudocode or a small code example how we could achieve this process?

The key goal is to avoid user going into the Logon page and redirecting directly to the URL for usage of the webservice.
