MVC :: Storing User Information In Session With AspNetMembershipProvider?

Jun 4, 2010

i m developing an application in .NET mvc2. i m using aspnetMembershipProvider for User registration and related activities. i need some custom information about user that i stored in a separate table (sysUser for example) and linked it to aspnetUser table through foreign key. after Login i need to fetch user's credentials from sysUser table and push it to the session. For this Account controller's Logon method seemed best to me and i pasted following code in my Logon ActionResult


The code is working perfectly for me and put my desired information in the session but the thing is that if a user selects Remember me and on his next visit he won't have to Log in and i would not find my desired information in the Session. where should i put my code that stores the user information in the session.

Security :: Storing Profile Information Into Session

Feb 10, 2010

I have created a custom user creation wizard to store custom user information, This is working fine. I am now trying to create a new page to give the newly created user to create users in there own company, so i need to retrieve the company information from the user profile created and automaticlly fill that information into the new create user wizard. ie User from A company logs in. (company_id from profile is stored in session)
User A wants to make another user in company A (but cannot make a user in company B) User A fills in details for new user, Company A information is autofill into new user info. (possibly from session)

I have read alot about storing membership. info into session but i cannot find any code examples of how to do this. I need to find a way to store Company_id into session and then use that for creating a new user with the same Company_id.

VS 2010 - Storing Sensitive Information In A Session Variable?

Dec 17, 2010

I am creating a website that allows users to login to their gameserver remotely and send / receive commands. The connection happens via an UDP socket and requires simply the IP of the gameserver, and a password.

On my website, users can add servers to their accounts, where the server IP and password are stored in a database. Then they can connect to any of their servers, which creates a new Socket object and connects to it using the IP and password of that server.

This Socket object, embedded in an object that also stores the server IP and password, is stored in a Session variable when the user connects, and is retrieved on every page. For example, there's a page where the user can view a list of the players on the server (and kick/ban them), a page with server settings, a page with messages, etc. All these pages require the Socket connection to get their information (they send a certain command and parse the response). When I need to send a command via the socket, I need to send the password of the server each time (otherwise it does not work). My question now is: how secure is this? The password of a server is sensitive information*, but I am storing it in a session variable and sending it (using the Send command of the Socket object) to the server.

i think the Session variable is stored on memory on the server, so I don't think so, but I'm really unsure about these kind of things and I'd like to be certain that my website is secure. Well, I think it will never be 100% secure but I want it to be at least not worth the effort for someone to hack the password. If it takes a lot of trouble then people wouldn't bother, but I don't want to find out that people's passwords are being thrown out on the street (so to speak) and that my website is completely insecure...

WCF / ASMX :: WCF Storing Authenticated User Information?

Jan 15, 2011

I am building a RESTful service using WCF. I basically want to save information about a user when they authenticate to the WCF service. For example I want to save their first name, last name, account number , and password in order to access the information in other requests in the same session. Since this information is sensitive I can not store it in a cookie.

I don't want to use session state because I plan to run this WCF as a Windows Service. Is there something (class, Assembly) I can use that can save user information and retrieve it per request or do I have to create a custom solution that will create an entry in a database every time a client authenticates to the WCF service.

Storing User-id In Session Variable?

Aug 30, 2010

When a use is logged in (Through open-id) we are creating a session variable named "UID" and storing the unique user-id in it. Later we are checking the session to see if the user is logged in. I think this is not the right way, but I could not force the team to change this, as I cannot show how this implementation can be cracked. why (If yes) this implementation is bad?

Storing User Variables In Database Versus Session In C#

Jul 28, 2010

I'm working with an application that stores most data in a database and not session. I'm wondering of the pros and cons of each and which is the better way to go. For example, you have a pretty busy site and instead of storing user specific variables in session, there is a DB table called user data and it can store all user specific data that can be accessed from any page by querying the database. Which is the better way to go, session or database?

C# - Storing Dictionary In Session?

Jan 29, 2011

How do you create a dictionary of objects in the session? More specifically, I have a list of objects: MyList stores MyObject as the result of a linq query with the date as a parameter.

List<MyObject> Mylist;
MyList = GetObjects(TheDate);

Now I'd like to store MyList in the session object in a dictionary with the date as the key. When the page needs a MyList for a specific date, first search the dictionary and if it's blank for that date, get the data from the GetObjects query and store the result in the dictionary in the session.

C# - Storing A Collection Into A List And Session - Front End

Jan 29, 2011

I have this program in which I am trying to store a collection of values into a list and session


valueCollection = (List<Values>)Session["Value"];

I want to do the front end in a way which will show a table with each row showing a label and textbox. This would be too simple to do obviously but I want it to show 4 rows of the table by default and then the user can select "add another" this will then add another row onto the table with a label and textbox exactly similar to the 4 default. Everytime the user selects "add another" the table increments by 1.

Storing Large Amounts Of Session Data?

Feb 16, 2010

Im in the process of developing a web application, and I wish to store a reasonable amount of data for each user.

This data will be accessed each time the page is refreshed.

The only 2 options that I have come up with is:

* Session Data
* Storing the information in a text file with random file names for each person
* Database

The first one I do not really want to use as it would bog down the server - the second one is cumbersome

Is there any other options?

If possible i was thinking using the database, but am hesitant because of the amount of times the accessing of the database would need (every refresh for every user)

I dont want to store the information inside the viewstate (i dont know what MS was thinking when they thought of viewstate)

Storing A Reference To The Parent Control In Session?

Aug 24, 2010

I have an ASP.NET web form that has a "container" usercontrol that hosts several custom user controls on the page. The controls can be hosted directly in the container or can be children of other usercontrols. The container usercontrol has several public properties exposed that I sometimes need to get to from within the child user controls. I've been using some form of "this.Parent" or "this.Parent.Parent" to get back to the base control.

What would be the impact of storing a reference to "this" into Session from the base control so I can access it from within the event handlers within the user controls?

C# - Storing Classes In Session Variables - How It Works (memory)

Mar 31, 2011

I've read that you can store classes directly into a session variable i.e.

Session["var"] = myclass;

My question is how the memory management works. Does it automatically serialize this into the session on the client side?

Or does it hold the data for the instance of the class in server memory, and just holds a reference in the session object?
