Security :: Login Form Rejecting Valid Login With Forms Based Security And Membership Service

Jan 21, 2010

I've set up a system with forms based authentication and using the asp:Login control. When I put in an invalid password I get the approriate invalid password message. However when I put in a valid password, it does nothing...just returns to the login page again. I'm triple checked the login info. There is no error message, and the invalid attempts counter doesn't increment. When I put a break point in the Login_LoggedIn event of the Login form, it hits it, but User.Identity.IsAuthenticated is false. I'm not 100% sure it should be true at this point, as I'm pretty new to .NET but it seems kind of odd.

My user database is stored in a sqlserver 2005 db that already existed. I've added a new connection for it.In the authorization I have

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 :: Allow Clients To Login To Website And Connect To Specific Server Based On Login

Jul 5, 2010

We have created a windows application which is distributed amongst our clients. The application uses SQL Server 2008 as the back end and each client uses their own database on their own server. The databases are all exactly the same but each clients data is specific only to them.

We would like to offer our clients the ability to log-in to our website which would then login to their own database so that when they are out in the field they can perform similar tasks to what they can do with the windows app.Each of the clients databases has a user table containing their login details, permissions etc.

Our server is running on IIS and has SQL Server 2008 installed but it only contains our data and nothing of the clients.How should we go about this?

What I mean is do we need to make each client have an additional login to our main server which would then hold each clients individual connection strings etc which would then be used to connect to there specific database and then they would need to login again?? Seems like a nightmare for the user.

Security :: Secured Site Using The Login Control / Do Not Want Them Redirected Based On Their Login Status?

Mar 24, 2011

I am doing a simple secured site using the login control. I would like users to be redirected to their dashboard page once they log in, but after that if they choose to browse I do NOT want them redirected based on their login status. I am using the generic template provided in VWD with the basic login setup in the template including the tabbed ASP menu control - nothing fancy, nothing custom. This is intended to be something very simple and quick. Here is the code I am using for the page load...


So if I do this code WITHOUT the "IsPostBack", logged in users are always redirected to their dashboard and cannot see the hompage. However with that IsPostBack test, the redirect after initial login doesn't work.

I know this is extremely basic and simple, but I am restarting with this stuff after a year away, and I need a nudge.

Security :: How To Replace Login Form With Login State

Mar 16, 2010

I'm new to ASP.NET. I have a custom login form on my web with login and password fields and OK button. I use my own MembershipProvider to authenticate user. The login control form is in the upper right corner of page and if user is successfully authenticated, I need to display his name and html link "Logout", instead of it.

How can I get programatically user status and use it in condition for displaying login form/login status?

Security :: Use A Different Table In Membership Login?

How this line if (usrInfo! = null) add another variable that will be used to login.

This line (usrInfo! = null) works, but I have a database table "confirm". If I change in the Admin to "true", the user successfully logged on. If the base table "confirm" set to "false", the user will not be logged.

The following code works if (null! = & usrInfo & usrInfo. IsApproved), but instead of ' IsApproved ', I want to use table "confirm".

Security :: Membership Provider Changes After Successful Login?

Nov 8, 2010

I have a site in which I'm intending to use multiple membership providers. I'm using my own custom membership provider to provide access to several data stores depending on the section in which the user's information resides.

The actual login functions correctly using the built-in ASP.NET Login component in which I've manually specified the membership provider it should validate against. When I run a trace on it's actions, I can see that it attempts the 'validateuser' against the correct data store and continues to redirect the user to their applicable section.

The problem is that once they are logged in and the site (or I) call 'GetUser' to get the users information or permissions, the membership provider reverts to the site's default provider.

In my custom membership provider I'm only overriding the methods for GetUser and Validate user which is working perfectly fine for a singular membership provider, but not when using a different provider.

How can I ensure that the correct membership provider is retained with the user's membership details? Is there a method that I need to override/append in order to achieve what I'm looking for?

Security :: Store Last Implicit Login Without Membership Api?

Jul 25, 2010

we use forms authentication for a community website with about 200k users with a simple login like this:

Private Sub btnLogIn_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnLogIn.Click
If CheckPassword(txtEmail.Text, txtPassword.Text)
FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage(txtEmail.Text, chkRememberMe.Checked)
End If
End Sub

which checkPassword reads from a MS SQL users table. it has worked without major problems for 3 years but we need to store the login date of users in a table, both when they login explicitly and when they had selected "remember me" and come back (we store login once per session)

since we have a complicated profile system and database it will be practically impossible to switch to membership API. last time I was told we could user an auditing system to do that but I have no idea how to do that.

Security :: Login Control And .Net Membership & Role?

Oct 28, 2010

I am currently working in an ASP.Net application where i need to implement ASP.Net Membership and Roles. I have used Login controls in my pages. Also I am using a menu in the master page, which is getting data bindings from database. For data bindings I am using XMLDatasource and a transform file (.xslt file). I need to bind the data to the Menu based on the user roles.

My issue is that the generated Menu is not behaving consistently. Sometimes it will show the correct menu for a particular role and some times it will show previously loaded data.Providing my code here:

private void LoadMenuItems() {
System.Security.Principal.IPrincipal User;
User = System.Web.HttpContext.Current.User;[code]....

Security :: MemberShip Provider - Lock On The Page Login?

Jan 6, 2011

I have a problem with a login module in my website.

I use a membership provider custom on my website.

My login page is the default page. When I go in [URL](the root) I see my login page.

When I try to connect with my user and password, I'm not redirect to my url destination and reload the login page.

BUT if I go in the url : [URL] (my login page), I'm correctly redirect to my secure page.

Are you a idea of my problem ?

Security :: Membership.GetUser().UserName On Login Page?

I have tried creating the employee in the page load event when it is a post back. I have tried doing it in the Login1_LoggedIn event. For some reason I cannot pull the username in either one of these places, but if I redirect after logging in and do the same thing on another page, it works.

How can I get it done on the login page?

Security :: Protecting A Folder Using Membership But No Login Control?

Jun 23, 2010

I have a business site that I want to use to show clients their projects I am working on. I don't want these projects to be visible to anyone but the clients, so I give them a user ID and password. I want to use membership to manage the login IDs and passwords, but I want to use jquery to submit the login form (it's lighter and leaner than the login control). Here is what I have: Page with an html form for login .js file with the jquery calls & code in it httpHandler to process the information from the formI have the user to entering their ID and password, I am using jquery.forms.js to process the form, which calls the httpHandler and passes the form values to the handler. I have the handler check to see if the user ID and password are correct, if not, it passes back a message to be displayed to the user. If the user is valid, then I have it passing back the role of the user, which also happens to be the name of the folder the client needs to view. I have the page redirecting via javascript to the client's folder once they are authenticated. I have the location of the client folder setup in my web.config.

The problem I'm having is the page just redirects back to the login page, with the return url included (?ReturnUrl=%2fCTS%2f2010+Design%2fLasmer%2findex.aspx). I want it to go to the client folder (Lasmer in this case) once the user has been authenticated. Shouldn't it send me to the folder's default page once it knows the user is authenticated? Do I have a problem in the way my web.config is wired up, and do I need anything in the client folder's web.config?Here is the code for the web.config:


Here is the code for the handler:


Here is the code for the .js file:

Security :: Login Controls And Custom Membership Provider?

Oct 11, 2010

I am working on implementing a custom membership provider that works against an existing schema in my database and have a few thoughts/question.The login control will automatically call the ValidateUser method of the membership provider, so no matter how I implement the provider the only thing the login control cares about the bool value returned by this method. What I am confused about is there could be numerous reasons why a login attempt failed; user is locked out, too many tries in a period of time, etc. There is no way that I see to convey that to the control so it could display the proper message. Other properties of the membership provider such as PasswordStrengthRegularExpression have absolutely no effect on the login control as well (out of the box), I would have hoped that it would automatically somehow translate into regular expression validators, but that doesn't seem to be the case. So it seems that I need to initialize the login control properties with these settings out of the provider configuration if I want them to take on the control itself.

If the only thing that the Login control does out of the box (without manually handling events and doing the initialization as described above) is call the ValidateUser method on the membership provider, I see no way to convey back to the Login control why the validation failed or even doing things like throttling the validation requests based on a certain time window. Ultimately my question is why would I even use the membership provider then in conjunction with the login control? It seems like it was only designed for a Yes/No type response, which is very restrictive. If I want to build in logic with different messages back to the user I need to handle the login control events and call my own authentication classes that will handle all of my business requirements as well as return a custom error message back to the Login control to display to the user so they know why their attempt is invalid.

Unless I am wrong in my assumptions, it seems that the interface between the Login control as the membership API is too restrictive to be useful. Perhaps the API works better for other auth controls like ChangePassword better but for the actual Login control I don't see the point.

Security :: How To Create A Customized Login Control And Calls For Membership Authentication

Mar 18, 2010

I just like to know how can i create my own authentication(calling the ASP .net membership, role) page with the same function as the LOGIN Control. Your wondering, why not use the Login control instead. I have my own design and i don't know how to pattern my design to the built in Login Control. I tried editing the login template, but it's pretty hard to pattern it to my design.

This is my design

Basically what would like to know how the Login Control calls for the authentication, and when authenticated, it will pass the user(full name) to my LoginView Control without any coding. Or is it possible that I remove default login button in the LOGIN Control then create my own button and trigger the authentication or validation? But if you have other suggestion that can follow my design and call the authentication, i would be happy to know.
