Security :: Accessing .NET WCF Authentication Service In Winforms Application?

Jul 30, 2010

I'm trying to use ASP.NET WCF Authentication Service from a Winforms Application.

I am referring to this article as a tutorial.

for silverlight clients, the WCF Auth service works well.

but for Winforms Apps,

[Code]....the AuthenticationServiceClient.IsLoggedIn() always returns false even after login.

what is the cause of this and is there another approach I should take when I leverage ASP.NET authentication from Winforms?

Security :: Custom Role Provider In WinForms And Web Application?

Feb 9, 2010

I have a custom role provider class that is currently being used by a web application. We are now in the process of migrating several windows applications from VB6 to VB.Net. From preliminary research, I understand that I can use the custom role provider in win forms as well and came across Client Application Services. I understand how the Client Application Services is setup, but can't seem to find how the custom role provider code will be shared between the web apps and the windows apps.

Security :: Login Contols And A Web Service - Web Service To Do The Membership Authentication And Authorization?

Jan 23, 2010

I am writing two ASP.NET apps. One is a web service that provides xml data and the other is a web client that will use the service to display and manipulate data. I would like for the web service to do the membership authentication and authorization. Is there any way to simply point the login controls in my client application to the web service instead of to a database. I assume I would have to provide the necesarry methods in my web service interface, which would then use the membership provider database I created and pass the results back through to the client.

Is this possible? I have seen many articles on security provisioin from a web service but none has really been what I am looking for. I was hoping that, since my service and my client are both written in ASP.NET, there might be some built functionality that would benefit me.

Security :: Running Application Under The Security Context Of The Logged In User (LDAP Authentication)

Mar 17, 2011

We are using membership provider for LDAP authentication. It is working as it should.

But what all configuration settings I have to do so that
all the future requests to this application run under the security context of the Logged in user account not through the some default user set in IIS.

We need to have this working because all the permissions on the database are based on the logged in user.

We are using form authentication for LDAP authentication. And having impersonation = true in web.config.

Security :: Accessing Reporting Application From External Network?

Dec 7, 2010

We have an issue with an internal application, where accessing it from LAN (private n/w) works fine, while access from external n/w throws up erratic behavior.

The Current System :

an aspx page (asp version 1.0) hosted on the IIS server (6.1). The front end is a vb form that connects to a sql 2000 database.

Users' credentials authorized using NTLM security.

Access from an external n/w - a reverse proxy configured with an ISA server 2006 to authenticate credentials.

Domain Controller - Windows Server 2008 R2 x64

The issue when accessed from external n/w :

everytime an entry from a drop-down is selected from an Ajax enabled control, instead of the fields populating, the page gets refreshed and the content of the box are cleared.

Also, clicking on other items that normally hyperlink to other pages, results in nothing happening.

Upon investigation, we realized that :

Everytime it fails, a string - "&AuthResend" followed by an alpha numeric string is attached, which attempts to authenticate the user's credentials everytime a request is made to the server.

ISA error logs yielded the following error msg :

"12210 Internet Server API ( ISAPI ) has finished handling the request. Contact your system administrator. "

This behavior is inconsistent except when accessed from Google Chrome, where it fails each time.

We have applied all the recommended hot fixes from Microsoft's KB pages.

C# - Using .net Credentials To Log In From A WinForms Application

Aug 9, 2010

We have an application but some screens are deemed too slow to use by our users.As a result, we are trying to provide a WinForms-based alternative to those data-input centric screens so we can use richer controls like Grids with immediate screen updates and feedback for the user.

Ideally, I would like the users to login to the WinForms application using the same credentials they use in the application?

Is it possible?I've found this post ( ) but it isn't really answering the question from my point of view... We are not using WebServices, or WCF at the moment and do not plan to use it unless it is really the only way to achieve this.
