What is the authentication mode available in ASP.NET? How do you set authentication mode in the ASP.NET application? How do you provide secured communication in ASP.NET? List out the difference between windows authentication and form authentication. ?
I'm using Forms authentication in ASP.NET MVC website and I store user account login name in AuthCookie like this: FormsAuthentication.SetAuthCookie(account.Login, false); I want to ask if there is a possibility that user on client side will somehow manage to change his login name in AuthCookie and thus he will be for example impersonated as someone with higher privileges and authorized to do more actions than he is normally supposed to have. Also is it better to save in this cookie user account login name or user account ID number?
I'm using Visual studio 2005 with C# on .NET framework 2.0.. I am implementing forms authentication in this project but the problem is when I'm on registration form ( outside login) and try to open any window on that form using java script (window. open) it redirects me to login page. How should i tackle this problem??
I have an old website running fine in Classic ASP with large customer base registered onto the site. The current site allows users to have their own user name(unique) registered against an ID assigned to them. They can change the User name later as well provided it is still Unique in the database(Database is SQLServer2005).
The Problem: Now i want to move the website to .NET and want to use the .NET Membership. I know how to create the database structure in SQL Server through aspnet_regsql script but my problem is how should i import the existing username and passwords as the password stored in MembershipDB is Hashed (salt). Also i might want to allow admins to impersonate as users later.
I have a web application that requires two separate authentication and authorization.
In the root webconfig i configure the security for authenticating and authorizing public users
I also need authentication and authorization for the back end. That is the administrator who will manage the web application.
For this i have a subdirectory "admin" that will contain all the functionality for the back end. In the "admin" subdirectory i have a second web.config and i tried to add all the security for the administrator but it does not let me
Is it possible to have to separate authorization and authentication for a single web application. All the details will be save in microsoft's sql tables generate (for example aspnet... tables)
I have an application which is installed on local pc and is using SQL db. It is a client management system where I want to add capability to register new clients and give them access to my web site which is sharing the same SQL database with local application.
At the moment clients can register on the web site and I have ASP.NET authorisation system set up with aspnetdb_user, aspnetdb_membership and etc tables. But sometimes it happens that I need to register clients on my local application on PC and ideally would like that registration to create online account for the client as well. Then I want to be able to send him user id and password by email and let him know that he has been registered in my database and online account is ready for him as well.
Basically I want to have full synchronization between asp.net membership service and local application through SQL db. As I said both online and local apps are shareing the same SQL database. what would be the best practice to implement it.
I've just started a small ASP.NET web application. In this project, I need to authenticate the users with Active Driectory. I managed to authenticate the users successfully with Active Directory. But with Authorization with Custom Role Provider, I'm so confused.You see, the user name and password are stored in AD. So, my approach is that after the LoggedIn event of the Login Control, I check if UserName is not yet stored in the Users table yet, then I will store the UserName there. Eventually, I have all the UserName of the AD users store in the Users table so I can assign Roles to the users.
Let's say I assigned UserA to RoleOne. After he logs in successfully, I do some query to look for his Roles.
Where do I keep the Role ticket? In the Cookie or in the session? How does the authorization of ASP.NET role provider work? I want to store the authentication ticket like ASP.NET role prover does too.
In my asp.net website in VS-2005 with SQL-Server 2005 as db, I need to implement role-based Authentication/Authorization.
I am familiar to the practises used in role-based authentication..as I have previously worked on projects that used this method. However, my project lead used to design the database. Now I have an existing website where authentication has been set to anonymous by setting 'allow users="?"' in the authentication tags in web.config.
If I use the createUserWizard control and use the Membership.creatUser(.....) method in code behind will the asp.net security tables, like users, roles, userinrole etc get created on its own?
I am trying to implement a simple role based authorization using forms authentication in ASP.net. It works perfectly fine in my local system but fails when I deploy in production (shared hosting). Whenever I try to log in, rather than taking me to the default page in specified directory it throws me back to the login page. I suspect that there is some issues with the configuration but not sure where the problem is. The code is provided below:
Web.config (Member directory):
Works fine in local machine but shared hosting is not taking the authenticated user to the pages inside the secured folders. What can be the issue?
I am using ASP.NET MVC 3 and am trying to do something that should be really straight forward...
My application uses Forms authentication and that is working perfectly for controllers/actions. For example if I decorate either a controller or an action with the attribute below only members of the administrators group can view them:
However I have a folder under the default Scripts folder called Admin. I only want members of the Administrators group to be able to access scripts within this directory so I created a new web.config in the directory with the following inside:
However no matter whether a user is a member of the Administrators group or not they receive a 302 Found message and are then redirected to the login page.
If I change the web.config to allow user="*" then it works. It also works if I add an allow users="Username" for a specific user I am testing with.
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.
I am going through the Security Tutorials here on ASP.Net. I am currently working on the last part of the Membership - User-Based Authorization. The tutorial covers restricting access to specific pages or to directories using a second Web.Config file. I am running into a problem with the myLogin page DestinationPageURL. Here is what is happening: 1. When the website starts, the Login page opens. 2. If I log in with an existing user, I am sent to the Default.aspx page. That is what is in the yLogin.DestinationPageURL for the login page.
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.
When a user attempts to directly visit the url admin.aspx, and they are not an admin, they are redirected to the login page. However, the user then attempts to visit ViewWeek.aspx, it indicates that they are still logged in. Why does this ASP.NET authorization boot the user to the login screen, yet keep the user logged in? I'd rather it just direct the user to the default URL specified in the forms tag.
There has to be a simple way to send a confirmation email to new users. Every article that I've read really doesent tell me how to use the sendingmail event. In addition when I had it working, it wouldnt send emails to places like gmail or aol.

I'm looking for a way to create a login control without the use of web admin tool
Here are my system requirements
Windows 7 Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition ESET Anti-virus but SQL and Studio files excluded from being scanned. I have got a database. I've created the front end of the user login control manually not using the toolbox. Basically what I need is that once a user has registered. He then logs in. when he enters his username and password how do I code it so the database realises it's him/her and takes them to their LOGGED IN user
I am using CreateUserWizard control on my admin page.After successfully creating a user with the control, it displays "Complete Your account has been successfully created."After clicking on continue button it sets the ActiveStepIndex Correctly.The problem is, while it sets the ActiveStepIndex correctly, it retains the old user account credentials.
We are using membership provider for LDAP authentication. It is working as it should.
But what all configuration settings I have to do so that all the future requests to this application run under the security context of the Logged in user account not through the some default user set in IIS.
We need to have this working because all the permissions on the database are based on the logged in user.
We are using form authentication for LDAP authentication. And having impersonation = true in web.config.
Our team has recently implemented a role permission based authorization so that we can have granular control. This is similar to what Rockford Lhotka suggests herehttp://www.lhotka.net/weblog/PermissionbasedAuthorizationVsRolebasedAuthorization.aspx I have also read about the Claims based authorization which to me looks very similar to what we have. Can some one put in simple terms what the advantages of claims based authorization are.
