Security :: Identity Impersonate + Integrated Security(DB) And Programatically Impersonating The User?

Nov 19, 2010

I have identity impersonate = true in the Web.config file. I have integrated security = true in the DB connection string in the Web.config file.Before identity impersonate was true,users were able to access the DB through the web service account (seemingly).Now I get an error which says " Login failed for ... " because I am aware there is no specific account for that user in the permissions for that DB instance.I needed to set identity impersonate = true because the web service does not have access to the Active Directory,which I need to retrieve certain user information.

My question is,does identity impersonate = true override the integrated security and attempt to user the authenticated user's account to connect to the DB? Is there a simple way to prevent this in the Web.config itself?If not,would programatically impersonating the user within the Active Directory query functions and setting identity impersonate = false do the trick here?

Security :: Windows Integrated Security And Application Pool Identity?

Aug 9, 2010

My website security is configured with "Windows Integrated Security" only (anonymous is disabled).

I also want to set a specific account to run the w3wp.exe process using the
Application Pool Identity to a domain account.

Running directly from the server works without any problem but from remote computers I always get the authenticaion window then the 401.1 error (after 3 attempts).

It seems that its the combination of "Windows Integrated Security" along with the "Application Pool Identity" that causes the problem. When I disable one of the two it works properly.

My server is Windows Server 2003 R2, running IIS 6.0.

Security :: Identity Impersonate - False And IIS In Windows Mode

Feb 21, 2011

I have a webpage stored on a local server (Site A) which when I browse to it is given my windows account details, this site then checks within AD to get my email address. My email address is then passed to another website (Site B) and consumed. The Website A is set in IIS to Integrated Windows Auth Only, WebSite A has

<identity impersonate="false"/>

set in the web.config What I dont understand is what user is accessing AD from site A - with impersonate = false that is telling the site not impersonate the windows user, but this seems at odds with the setting in IIS.

Security :: Opening A Webpage Impersonating The User?

Sep 16, 2010

I have a WebApplication1 running in a port (let's say 4000) and I'm trying to build a website (WebSite1), running on IIS, that is running on the same server. I have no control over the WebApplication1, it's a packaged software, WebSite1 is built by me.

The WebSite1 will do a custom user validation and then will let the user access the WebApplication1:4000 under the impersonated user under which the website is running, not the user in the client machine. Sort of like changing the user in the session.

I have implemented Forms authentication in an ASP.NET MVC 2 website

By using <%: Page.User.Identity.Name %> on the Site.Master page I can display the userid of the logged in user.

I would like to use this value and display other information about the user that is stored in a User table in a MsSQL database, like:

Security :: User.Identity.Name In Global.asax

Jun 1, 2010

In the website we have several folders, some folders are accessible by anonymous users, others are accessible by members only, some by administrators or a both administrators and members can view this folder. Each folder contains some forms; these forms are based on the role as well. We'd like to add "user.identity" as to authenticate the user based on the user_id from table websit_ users.

However we are not sure , wither we need to specify each and every form, folder or this will be done automatically once authentication is applied. And where do we put the user.identity and what is the exact format of it. Do we include it in our Global.asax after the authentication part?! This is the code in global.asax:

Security :: Unable To Retrieve Current.User.Identity.Name In II7

Feb 26, 2010

I'm in the middle of moving a web application from IIS6 to IIS7. I've enabled "Windows Authentication" and added <deny users="?" /> to the authorization section of my web.config file. When the app was running on IIS6 my users where able to access the web app without logging in because their windows login was automatically recognized. This does not seem to be the case in II7. I can not get a value for "Current.User.Identity.Name" in my ASP.Net code.

Security :: User.Identity.Name.ToString() Is This Secure And How To Store It

Feb 10, 2010

I have created an site with anonymous access turned off. Its for an internal (intranet) system which uses User.Identity.Name.ToString() to get the users login windows ID and then displays some records from a datagrid depending on their login ID. Is this secure? Also i am struggling to workout how best to store the result of User.Identity.Name.ToString() as I am not keen on storing it in a hidden text field and would rather not call it all the time unless this is the best way?

Security :: Set When Using The Login Controls?

To avoid going to the Databse to get the user Id, Id like to append userId to the field. This way I can split the returned string to get the UserId without going to the database.

Where can I do this when using the login controls?

Is there some event handler where I can add:

FormsAuthentication.SetAuthCookie(NamePlusUserID, false);

Security :: Passing The User.identity Object To Shared Code?

Dec 13, 2010

I have a shared module in an web app which gets various information about a group or user. Since the Iuser account on the web does not have enough rights to query the AD, I need to supply an appropriate userid and passcode for the directoryentry in the shared code. Since my credentials so the have the appropriate rights to query the AD I like to impersonate myself(user.identity). This works fine for a webpage, but I can't pass the user.identity object to shared code. I get an error. Is there a way to pass the user.identity object to a shared function in another module?

Security :: Forms Authentication Cookie Not Changing Current User Identity

Jan 21, 2010

I am having a problem with security in a web application I am building using Visual Web Developer 2008. I am using Forms Authentication:

<authentication mode="Forms">
<forms name=".MYAUTH" timeout="20" enableCrossAppRedirects="true" />

And a SQL Server database with ASP.NET Membership and Roles. I am using the LoginView control with the AnonymousTemplate and LoggedInTemplate to manage the user's interaction with logging in and out. The problem I am having is that I am authenticating the user against the database:

If Membership.ValidateUser(_userName, _txtLoginPass.Text)
Then returns True and:
FormsAuthentication.SetAuthCookie(_userName, False)
sets the cookie correctly:
FormsAuthentication.Decrypt(FormsAuthentication.GetAuthCookie(_userName, False).Values(0))
{System.Web.Security.FormsAuthenticationTicket} CookiePath: "/"
Expiration: #1/21/2010 1:42:27 PM#
Expired: False
IsPersistent: False
IssueDate: #1/21/2010 1:22:27 PM#
Name: "jaymo "
UserData: ""
Version: 2
but when I check
HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.IsAuthenticated it always returns False.
If done this before and it worked fine. I cannot find any mistake I might have made or where something might have changed between ASP.NET 2.0 and 3.5.

Security :: User.Identity.IsAuthenticated Returns True But Session Has Expired

May 24, 2010

I have a page where, when the user has successfully logged in, I store some values in the session.

I then use these values to load an application list page. This page is automatically refreshed after 20.1 minutes, with the sessionstate timeout and forms timeout in web.config set to 20 minutes (with sliding expiration). This means, if the user does not use any page for more than 20 minutes, he is timed out.

My problem is that the User.Identity.IsAuthenticated sometimes returns true, when the session has expired.

Why is this happening, and how can I fix it?

Security :: IIS7 Recycle Results In Context.User.Identity.IsAuthenticated = False?

Nov 22, 2010

I need an app pool recycle to be completely transparent to the users of my web app. I use ASP.NET 3.5 MVC 1.

Currently, upon an IIS 7 App Pool recycle all users logged into my web app are kicked out and are required to log back in (Context.User.Identity.IsAuthenticated is set to false). I employ SQL State Server, I use forms authentication and both are configured to use cookies. I was under the impression that .NET and/or IIS handles authentication of cookies.

However, every time the app pool is recycled Context.User.Identity.IsAuthenticated is set to false my users are kicked out and are required to log back in. I can see that the session id remains the same throughout logins, I can also view this session information in the database/state server.

Logon method:
