Security :: Forms Authentication Through The Membership Provider Sporadically Not Working

May 3, 2010

I have implemented the .Net Membership provider with my website which is, for the most part, working well. However, occasionally a user will try and login and nothing will happen. There will be no error, they will just hit "Submit" from the login screen and continue to the homepage as an unauthenticated user. This behavior persists until they clear their web cache, or restart their machine... which makes me think it's some kind of cookie expiration error?

Does anyone have any ideas on how to troubleshoot this?

Here is the relevant section of my webconfig:

<membership defaultProvider="AspNetSqlMembershipProvider">
<providers>
<clear/>
<add name="AspNetSqlMembershipProvider" type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider" connectionStringName="ASPWebAuthConnectionString" maxInvalidPasswordAttempts="10000000" enablePasswordRetrieval="false" enablePasswordReset="true" applicationName="nvpumps"
requiresUniqueEmail="false" minRequiredNonalphanumericCharacters="0" minRequiredPasswordLength="5" requiresQuestionAndAnswer="false"/>
</providers>
</membership>

Membership Provider Authentication Not Working Authenticating WCF Service

Oct 27, 2010

I have a SqlMembershipProvider store with Roles enabled. This is configured and has the user "devtest" in the roles "xxUser" and "xxAdmin".

I also have a WCF service, which I want to authenticate and authorize against. My problem is that:

the authorisation is not happening, code just executes despite the policy attribute I don't get any identity or security context so do not know who is calling the service I need: to know which user is calling the
method some degree of rejecting users if permissions don't match (ideally this should be performed
within the RoleProvider/MembershipProvider/WCF but can do it myself if I have to) SSL in transport

I have my service contract set up thus:

[ServiceContract]
public interface ISupportService
{
[OperationContract]
[PrincipalPermission(SecurityAction.Demand, Role = "ThisRoleDoesNotExist")]
List<BaseInterestRate> GetAllBaseInterestRates();
}
the code is simple enough:
public class SupportService : ISupportService
{
public List<BaseInterestRate> GetAllBaseInterestRates()
{
OperationContext operationContext = OperationContext.Current;
ServiceSecurityContext serviceSecurityContext = ServiceSecurityContext.Current; // is always null
using (xxxEntities entities = new xxxEntities())
{
return new List<BaseInterestRate>(entities.BaseInterestRates);
}
}}
My service configuration is thus:
-->
<behaviors>
<serviceBehaviors>
<behavior name="SupportServiceBehavior">
<serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="false" httpsGetEnabled="true" />
<serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="false" />
<serviceAuthorization principalPermissionMode="UseAspNetRoles" roleProviderName="AspNetSqlRoleProvider" />
<serviceCredentials>
<userNameAuthentication userNamePasswordValidationMode="MembershipProvider"
membershipProviderName="SqlMembershipProvider" />
</serviceCredentials>
</behavior>
<behavior>
<serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true"/>
<serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="false"/>
</behavior>
</serviceBehaviors>
</behaviors>
<serviceHostingEnvironment multipleSiteBindingsEnabled="true" />

Having already configured the MembershipProvider:

<membership defaultProvider="SqlMembershipProvider" >
<providers>
<clear/>
<add name="SqlMembershipProvider"
connectionStringName="SqlMembershipProvider"
applicationName="xxx"
type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider" />
</providers>
</membership>
<roleManager enabled="true">
<providers>
<clear />
<add connectionStringName="SqlMembershipProvider" applicationName="xxx"
name="AspNetSqlRoleProvider" type="System.Web.Security.SqlRoleProvider" />
<add applicationName="xxx" name="AspNetWindowsTokenRoleProvider
type="System.Web.Security.WindowsTokenRoleProvider" />
</providers>
</roleManager>

I have followed the instructions at these pages to the letter:

How to: Use the SQL Server Role Provider with Windows Authentication in WCF Calling from Windows Forms (MSDN)
How to: Create and Install Temporary Client Certificates in WCF During Development (MSDN)
How to: Use wsHttpBinding with Username Authentication and TransportWithMessageCredentials in WCF Calling from Windows Forms (MSDN)
Also quite useful found via SO: Use Asp.Net Membership provider with a WCF .svc service (Alkampfer's Place)

I would at lest expect an issue with certificates/transport/etc. to fail with exceptions, but I can debug right in and over the WCF call. I have no security context/ user context available to me and when I use a user not in the two mentioned roles (which I do in the code example above), I don't get "kicked out".

My client app is currently a Web App, but will ultimately also serve a Windows Forms app and Test suite. I'm currently using the ASP.NET WebDev server and am running .NET 4.0.

Am I missing something?

Disable SQL Membership Provider (ASP.Net Forms Authentication)

Mar 30, 2011

I have setup a trivial preview website for a client that needs basic password protection. I'm using Forms Authentication with the credentials specified in web.config.

Everything works fine on my box (famous last words)

However, when I deploy to a production website running Win2008, the authentication code attempts to open a SQL Server database (I have no reference to anything SQL in web.config). How can I disable this behavior so that authentication is based on the credentials I have entered in web.config?

Exception in Event Log

Unable to connect to SQL Server database. at System.Web.Management.SqlServices.GetSqlConnection(String server, String user, String password, Boolean trusted, String connectionString) at System.Web.Management.SqlServices.SetupApplicationServices(String server, String user, String password, Boolean trusted, String connectionString, String database, String dbFileName, SqlFeatures features, Boolean install) at System.Web.DataAccess.SqlConnectionHelper.CreateMdfFile(String fullFileName, String dataDir, String connectionString) at System.Web.DataAccess.SqlConnectionHelper.EnsureSqlExpressDBFile(String connectionString)
... at System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection.Open() at System.Web.Management.SqlServices.GetSqlConnection(String server, String user, String password, Boolean trusted, String connectionString)(URL)

web.config (relevant portion)

Iis6 - Application With Windows Authentication And Custom Membership Provider Advice

Feb 15, 2011

I've been asked to upgrade a few applications and I'm planning on merging all of them into one asp.net application. I'm fine with this decision and have spoken with fellow workers and they also think it's the best option to go with.

The application will be accessed from a small group of users which belong to a larger domain. I'm currently planning on using Windows authentication and only allow this small set of users to access the asp.net application. Also there must be some role management, so that only certain users can view certain functionality.

I really don't want to have many different windows groups; so I want to avoid having to assign different windows groups to different folders and control permissions in the web.config.

What I'd like to do is:

- Assign one windows group to the small group of users who will access the page.

- Create a custom membership provider and control the user who accesses the application. Depending on the user I will then assign his current set of roles.

- Add an application setting to the web.config, with the name of the current administrator, so if he logs in, he will be assigned all roles, and will be able to create and assign roles to other users.

Membership Provider ResetPassword Isn't Working?

Jul 7, 2010

I have encountered a very strange issue. Whenever I use the .NET membership provider to reset a password, it generates strange characters, which don't represent the password at all.An example of the password it generates is:

It does this on every password. Has anyone seen this before or know a fix?

Security :: Use Membership Provider In Forms Application Without Defining An App.config?

Feb 17, 2011

I have a small windows forms application that uses the membership provider that is defined in my app.config file. I want to get rid of my app.config file and initialize the membership provider completely from code. The reason behind this is because I want to be able to dynamically connect to different databases containing asp.net user tables and I want the user to be able to enter the desired database information into a text box at run time. Is this possible or is it required that I have an app.config file?

MVC :: AspNetDB Membership / Role Provider Not Working 'outside' Server?

Jul 6, 2010

I have deployed an MVC application that uses ASPNetDB for Membership and Role Provider.

now when i browse to the site on the actual server where it was deployed to i can use the login page to login on to the site and gain access to views that are restricted to users like myself by role.

However when i try and access the web application from any client computer who has access to sites on the server since the server is on the same domain - i experience the following strange behaviour:

when i navigate to my login page and enter my username and password (as stored in the aspnetdb database)

and click login

the page refreshes (looses my userid and name) and it does not go to the view i requested.

it also does not show in the top right links that i am logged on.

it is as though it spits out my username and password and refresh the page and that is that!

Why does it work on the server where the site is hosted - but not from external clients?

i can access all pages that do not require users to be logged on or haev a specific role - but cannot log on and view them since login is broken?

Security :: SQL Membership Provider Using .NET 3.5 C#?

Dec 13, 2010

I am using SQL Membership Provider to create user accounts for my web site and for some reason, the CreateDate and LastLoginDate fields are NOT saving the current time of my machine when I add a new user to the website. It is showing the previous day's date and the time is displayed as PM when it's AM and vise-versa in the CreateDate and LastLoginDate fields in aspnet_Membership table. I am developing and running the website via localhost on my laptop using IIS 7 (Windows 7). Does this have anything to do with my laptop's clock settings or is there something I need to configure in the web.config file or in IIS.

Security :: Webshop Security - Membership Provider Useful?

Aug 10, 2010

I have to implement a small webshop. Basically it's just a website with a huge backend ERP System and with the possibility to sell one (yap, really only one!) product on the website. The only requirement is a MySQL Server. The backend is almost finished (about 95%) and is secured with the .net MemberShip Provider for MySQL (the one in MySql.Web from the MySql Connector .NET).

Now to my question: I can set up the membership system easily but I do not need such things like username or password-question but I would need a reference to an address table to store the users home address. So, it is possible to change or customize the membership system to for eg. a unique customer id instead of the username column and set this in codebehind when the user is creating a new account? And is it possible to insert new users/customers from codebehind in an easy way? (I mean without checking each foreign key and inserting the customer reference to the userinrole table and so on...)
