Security :: Windows Auth - Allow Anonymous Access To 1 Page?
Nov 23, 2010
I am working on a site that uses windows authentication, but I have one page for password resets that I want to allow anonymous access to.I have tried doing authorization, allow users="*", but it doesn't appear to work with this.Do I need to have another seperate site for this section?
We're running IIS7 and have windows authentication enabled. Everything else is disabled. When we go to the page though, we aren't prompted for a windows logon, but are redirected to the default forms authentication login page (Accoun
I need to create an application with Forms Authentication and/or Windows Authentication. If the application is set to use mixed authentication (Forms + Windows Auth) and the user don't have a Windows user account, the login will fail and he must be redirected to a forms login page. How can I do this?
Are there any different way to provide mixed authentication?
I'm trying to setup my IIS 7.0 MVC2 site but having problems.I want to use Integrated Security so that the app can obtain the user's credentials. We can then do a look-up of some AD groups to determine what they can do from that point onwards.The problem is - Every time we browse to the application, instead of navigating to our main page immediately, we get a login prompt provided by IE. I've read that we need to make sure that in the browser's Tools->Options->Advanced-> (Securiy-> ENable Windows Intagrated Security) must be checked - which it is on ALL 3 machines where I try this.
The machines AND the server are all in the same domain.My config file states <authentication mode="Windows" /> and I've tried every combination for <identity...> and <authorization...> but to no avail. I can only get the "login" prompt to go away if I enable Anonymous Authentication - but then I can't detect the windows user or their group membership.
Is it possible to request an X509 certificate from a client without configuring the application to use Windows Authentication? The purpose would be to press an asp.net button and "digitially sign" a web-form's contents. I do not need any login information, just the X509 cert.
if it is possible to use a WCF Dataservice as the MemberShipProvider for a forms auth application. I have written code for a provider (below), but I do not know what to do as far as a connection string, or any other web.config properties. Please Help!!! Here is the code for my provider, anytime it says Odbc that is because I based this off of the custom Odbc provider on the msdn site. The only ACTUAL references to any odbc connection are in the comments:
We have a weird issue found during setting up a new Windows 2003 Server with IIS6.0 & ASP.NET 2.0, our site is built using ASP.NET forms authentication with general authorization to deny access to all users & allow explicitly to static, home pages etc, -- web.config setting for forms auth looking as below:
I am using windows authentication in my web application. All we need is when the application will be executed it will launch login.aspx page. If users put correct userid and password(checked from active server directory) it will be redirected to a difference page. But if any unauthenticated user tries to access any other page in the application by typing the Url on the address bar it will be again redirected to the login page. We have to do this by changing our web.config file.I can achieve this using form authentication but not windows. But our requirement is windows. The requirement is very basic but all effort is just not working.
Been scratching my head on this one today quite a bit. Time to ask the guru's.Implementing your basic Forms Auth for a 2.0 web app in conjunction with SQL Membership Provider and Role Provider. Web.Config from virtual directory root
All other subdirectories do not contain web.config files but rather wanted them to just work off inheritence from the root web.config. Upon publishing of this setup - I am having one hell of a time maintaining the user 'authenticated' state. (Not sure if that's the best explanation of what is going on.. but)
I have developed asp.net 2.0 website with crystal report now what my problem is whenever i go to crystal report page its by default going to login.aspx or default.aspx though i didt set any login to my asp.net page..
I talk with my hosting provider they said that the asp.net impersonate is enable..
I think in IIS 7 authentication if i set anonymous access enable, will it work fine?
so i need to know how to enable anonymous access from my webconfig ..
I have a web site that is using Windows Integrated Security for authentication. Under the site in the IIS there is a virtual directory that inherits these security definitions. Assuming I have several pages under the virtual directory, is it possible to apply anonymous access on on 1 (one) of them?
I have a folder called /Error in the root directory for an ASP.Net site. The site is completely public, so there is no authentication of users. Inside the Error folder, I have a file called errorlog.aspx, where I log unhandled exceptions. I don't want the public to be able to view this file. I created a web.config file inside the Error folder.
However, I'm still able to view errorlog.aspx by typing the URL into the browser. What am I missing?
I set authentication mode to Windows in the web.config and I enable Windows Authentication and disable the Anonymous Authentication in IIS 7 on win 7, but HttpContext.Current.User is always null.It works fine when I host the web app in IIS 6.0.
I deployed a website where a logged user or an anonymous user can select data and download a XML file. The website generate the XML file in the server and then deliver it.
It works fine in my development environment, but after deployment, the anonymous user can download the file, but the logged user receive this error:
System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path 'd:HostsLocalUserheringerwebsiteUpload20110107094051.xml' is denied.
It is weird that as anonymous i can do it.
The website server help states this:
"Grant write, modify, delete access rights on website's folder
Your website executes under unique user account that by default has full control over the website's folder. So your application can create, open, read, write and delete files and folders inside of your root folder.
There is no need and no way to change this permissions.
If, when running ASP.Net application, you still unable to create file or update it, you have to check your Web.Config file for "<Identity impersonate..." tag and remove it.
The only exception is when the application tries to modify a file or folder in "Application_Start" event of Global.asax file. This is by design that user authenticated only after the Application_Start even. Before the user is authenticated your website runs under an identity of Application Pool which is "Network services". That account doesn't have access to the folder of your website.
To make it work you eather have to move the code that tries to modify files or folders out of the "Application_Start" event of the Global.asax file or inside the event you'll need to impersonate your user by code."
But i am not using impersonate and the tag is not in my web.config.
I'm writing a simple Intranet application using windows authentication. I want to restrict access to Safe/UCantSeeMe.aspx. I am aware of the AuthorizeAttribute, but this only works on methods. I also found a good post on doing this with the MVC pattern, but I'm not using MVC. This can be done with roles in forms based security. I read on MSDN that using windows based security means roles are based on groups, but it doesn't go into any detail. how can I restrict access to Safe/UCantSeeMe.aspx?
Our code relies on checking the Context.User.Identity value in the Global.asax Application AuthenticateRequest(...) method to retrieve some information about the logged in user. This works fine in classic mode but when I flip IIS to use the Integrated Pipeline "Context.User" comes back as null, but only intermittently.I have < authentication mode="Windows"> and only Windows Auth enabled in the Virtual Directory.
I have done some research and tried to find answers on how to integrate forms authentication with ASP.NET but all I can find is for 2.0. I don't mean to sound ignorant or annoying about it, but does anyone have a quick link to somewhere where I could find out how to integrate a custom SQL Server DB (with username, password, id, etc columns for user) with ASP.NET 4.0?My application is actually a Silverlight Business Application where I am trying to log in/register users in a separate Database in a SQL Server 2008 engine
I want to access membership and profile objects and wants to access profile properties that I have defined in my web app web.config file, from a windows service. Anyone have any idea on how to do this?
Let's say I'm currently authenticated in an application (namely: applicationA) and I click a link that will take me to another application (namely: applicationB). Is it correct that in order to bypass authentication of applicationB, I'll just create a ticket for that application telling the web server that I'm already authenticated?
