Security :: Windows Identity Foundation Federation Utility Fails Saying HRESULT 0x80070002

Feb 10, 2011

I've been trying to set a STS project in my solution following these steps on Channel 9. Right after hitting "Finish", I get an exception saying: The system cannot find the file specified. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070002). After installing, uninstalling, rebooting, and so on, I still get the error.

My OS is Windows 7 Enterprise x64, both Visual Studio 2010 and Visual Web Developer 2010 Express are installed in my machine, the WIF SDK 4, the runtime 6.1 and the Identity Training Kit from January 2011.

Security :: Windows Identity Foundation For .NET Framework 2?

Jan 23, 2011

I have an requirement to implement single sign on solution using SAML 2. I had a look at a tirdparty toolkit in componentspace, but I would prefer some microsoft components.

the features provided in componentspace toolkit can be done using some Microsoft .NET libraries itself. identify the microsoft way to do this?. I looked at the Windows Identity Foundation SDK, but it is now supported only for .NET 3.5. My web application is built on .NET 2.0.

Is there any alternative for Windows Identity Foundation in .NET framework 2.0?

Cookies - Windows Identity Foundation - How To Get New Security Token

Feb 1, 2010

I'm writing an application that uses Windows Identity Foundation. My application uses claims-based authentication with passive redirection to a security token service. This means that when a user accesses the application, they are automatically redirected to the Security Token Service where they receive a security token which identifies them to the application.

In, security tokens are stored as cookies.

I want to have something the user can click on in my application that will delete the cookie and redirect them to the Security Token Service to get a new token. In short, make it easy to log out and log in as another user. I try to delete the token-containing cookie in code, but it persists somehow.

How do I remove the token so that the user can log in again and get a new token?

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 :: Authentication Using IIS's Windows Identity?

Jul 30, 2010

I want to know if this kind of authentication is possible.

We have an Active Directory account and that account we are using to log in to windows. I have a simple system that needs authentication using the IIS log in box (i dont know what do you call this but what I know is it only comes out when Anonymous user is unchecked in the IIS configuration.) Now, I want this box to appear before my page and the user will be authenticated and be compare to the user who logged in to the windows. If the user who have been authenticated is the same as the user who logged in to the windwos then we will let him in if not he must be denied in accessing the page.

The first problem I have in my mind is how to code it in to make an authentication when he will try to access my page.

Second is, let us say we have succeeded to show the authentication box, how can I get the username from the log in box and compare it to the user who logged on in windows. Of course we can get the user id of the logged in user from the windows using User.Identity.Name but how about the username from the log in box.

Note: I will not use log in forms even using https. Just the log in provided by the IIS according to the configuration.

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 :: Application Within A Sharepoint Web Part Using Impersonation But Need Windows Identity

May 12, 2010

I currently have a client with a SharePoint site that wants to incorporate an (already written) ASP.NET application within a webpart in the SharePoint site. The application currently uses an IIS impersonation account to connect to the SQL database.

Some added functionality the client is requesting would require me to grab the user's windows login identity to use the SharePoint UserProfileWebService to query the PropertyPages for that specific user. Because the (already written) ASP.NET application uses impersonation, when I grab the WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent().Name, I get the impersonation account and not the actual user's account.

Is there a way to keep the current setup (impersonation account on IIS to connect to SQL) and still grab the logged in user's credentials? Or would a better way about this be to change IIS to consume the Windows Identity of the logged in user and encrypt the connection string in the web.config?

Security :: Website Windows Authentication Fails When Enabling SQL Mixed Mode?

Oct 18, 2010

Just to describe the scenario. I have a website. This lives on a webserver. On that webserver is an SQL server. The website connects to this database using windows authentication. I have written a windows form application that connects to the SQL Server on the webserver. This application is being run from a location on out intranet. The Winform application use SQL authentication to connect to the database. The SQL Server didn't have mix mode authentication enabled. So I enabled it. The winform application could now connect to the SQL Server.

This is where it starts getting a little strange.

The Website that was already connecting find using integrated authentication starts failing with:


When you are enabling mixed mode authentication, you are adding another authentication method, why would the original Windows authentication fail?

Configuration->Security Page Fails To Create AspnetDB.MDF In App_Data Folder On Windows 7

Feb 12, 2010

I am having problems getting the security.aspx to load up on my primary development computer which is using Windows 7 Ultimate and Windows IE 8. Clicking on the ASP.NET Configuration icon from the IDE in the Solution Explorer within Visual Web Developer 2008 Express Edition loads up default.aspx with no problem. But when I click on the "Security" hyperlink to access "security.aspx" I get a message along the lines of "The configured SQL data source provider is not properly configured". It goes on to state a list of potential reasons for this problem. One that includes not having the proper credentials or permissions. Im almost 100% sure it has something to do with permissions because I can't even get to the "security.aspx" page from opening a new empty project. I have recently installed Visual Web Developer 2008 Express Edition on my laptop which is running Vista with all latest updates and this issue does "not" exists. I can click the "ASP.NET" icon, load up "default.aspx" and click "Security" and it loads the page with absolutely no issues.

I have discovered a weird workaround but I don't like having to do this. If I add the following lines to my "web.config" file from any given project I can get to the "security.aspx" page without getting any SQL messages about improper configuration or permissions.

<<remove "LocalSqlServer">
source=.SQLEXPRESS;Integrated Security=SSPI;AttachDBFilename=|DataDirectory|aspnetdb.mdf;User Instance=true"

Basically, what I have to do to get to the security page to load without error is add a remove statement and then I just cut'n'paste almost the exact same connectionString from machine.config in the Microsoft.netFrameWorkV2.0.5027config directory. This does away with the "Improperly configured SQL datasource message" and gets me a new error message along the lines of "Could not create a SQL instance". My memory is fuzzy on exact error messages since Im not at development computer right now. However, when I change the User Instance attribute from true to false, then I have success at last.

Security :: Signle Sign On Using Active Directory Federation Services - Session Timeout

Jun 29, 2010

I have an ASP.NET application that is using Signle Sign On using Active Directory Federation Services

When the user first logs into the application, Once they are "authenticated", their credentials remain active while their web browser is open.

Now, I want the "authentication" to "timeout" in 60 minutes. This way if they browse to another page after 60 minutes, they are prompted to "re-enter" their credentials again.

I know that in FormsAuthentication, you can "de-authenticate" someone by calling "FormsAuthentication.SignOut();" in the Session_End Event in Global.asax.

Is there anyting like that for ADFS?

WCF / ASMX :: Windows Communication Foundation Service Returning Xml / Json Data?

Aug 25, 2010

I Need by service contract to return the xml/json result depending on the request type. function which will convert my result set (i am using linq to sql) so that i do not need to create the xml format for the result set by iterating through the table row many times.What is the suitable way to do that.

I need a kind of short cut method which will convert the table data to xml result.Had i been using mvc i would have been able to generate the xml data by overriding the the ExecuteResult method in the ActionResult and giving Conetnt-Type = "text/xml" as OP.But since i am using Wcf i don't have the controller context(as controller context is the parameter that needs to be passed to Execute Result).

My present code for converting the table data to the xml format is below.

public XDocument UsersLists(string authToken)
bool IsAuthenticated = Authenticate(authToken);
XDocument xDoc = new XDocument();
XElement root = new XElement("Users");


I need to eliminate this way of generating xml for each table records.

Security :: How To Create User Form/ Configuration Utility

Apr 29, 2010

i have designed a website in my desktop and used WAT of visual studio 2008 from Website menu and then selecting ASp.Net configuration.

Now i have copied my website to a server in my local network, server name=isaserver.

i try to access WAT utility of my website at isaserver. when i change webconfig file to correct data source, utility is working but

if i create a user using my website's create user form, then that user appears in aspnetdb database of isaserver but i am not able to see that user using WAT utility.

if i create a user using WAT utility then i am not able to login into my website hosted at isaserver using that username.

no matter how i create a user, either through my website's create user form or through WAT which is mapped to isaserver, both the users will appear in aspnetdb database of isaserver.

C# - Windows Identity Getting Confused Between Users?

Mar 1, 2011

We are observing some strange behaviour in our web server logs where where the Identity of the currently logged in user seems to be getting swapped with another user. I will describe our set up before explaining further.

We are running an web site (v3.5 of the framework) on 2 Windows 2008 web servers and use forms authentication.They are load balanced using a separate server running Apache 2.2 on Linux (Cent OS 5). The load balancing simply attaches a cookie to a user and directs them to a particular server for each subsequent request.

We notice on occasion patterns in the log like this (details obfuscated)

First Log Entry

UserName -
UserId - 1111
WebPage - page1
IP - ip1
Time - 2010-06-29 12:56:20.750
SessionId - h3uyz2fsdfegugjy452sdz0far.........

We are using forms authentication using the standard forms authentication framework (the standard login control and we implemented a custom membership provider).

The UserName is the Windows identity retrieved using "HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name" The UserId is the database Id set in the session. The sessionId is retrieved using "HttpContext.Current.Session.SessionID"

As you can see the same Windows identity is the same for 2 different users, under different IP addresses and with different session id's, hitting the site about the same time. We checked and the IP's were from totally different locations. The wrong windows identity seems to be getting recorded. UserId 2222 should have a different username recorded.

Since it happens very occasionally, the code is standard and has not changed substantially for some time we don't "think" it is a coding error. We presume either a problem with the load balancer or some problem in the web server. I have never heard of such problems in before.

The forms authentication entry in the web.config is

authentication mode="Forms"

forms loginUrl="LoginPage.aspx" name=".ASPXFORMSAUTH"

If I browse to http://servername/site/ then Page.User.Identity.Name will return current windows logged in username.

Is there something else I need to configure to get the current windows logged in username when using host header?
