How To Set Cookies And Session Variables

Jan 27, 2010

Am trying to design login page for my website and I am looking for methods other than forms authentication. The way in which I am trying is to have a table in the database that stores user information and check for the user validity.

The point where I get struck is how do i set cookies and session variables and how will I carry it through out the system. Can anyone tell/suggest me where I can relevant material so as to move forward. And also is my idea of negating traditional forms authentication and going for a model I described, is it good also does any other better method exist?

I use some session variables to get the job done(shopping cart, etc) but it is not stable..manytimes I get no items in session object and other times(refreshing the page) I get missing data...I downloaded the entire site code to my local pc and debugged it and run it succesfully without any session data missing...When I run it in the server, I get bad session again: no products in shopping cart or products with missing quantities...

The same website runs smoothly in our production server too....The problem is with our development server...

State Management :: Session Variables And Tabs / Is There A Way To Reset The Session Variable

Nov 11, 2010

I have some code in my page load event where I just want to fire once when the user opens the Browser. The only issue is if you open a new tab with the same website the session variable does not reset. Is there a way to reset the session variable when you open a new tab or do you have to take the whole web browser down for it to clear the session variable.

IIS InProc Session Variables Randomly Not Written To Session

Nov 12, 2010

There are reams of info out there about things causing InProc session to drop session objects, but that's not what's happening here. We're missing individual variables within stable InProc session objects, and are not sure whether they're not being written or being lost after a successful write. I've confirmed with WinDBG that the sessions are live and contain some, but not all, of the data written to them.

Guid g = System.Guid.NewGuid();
this.Context.Session.Add(g.ToString(), result.ImageData);
output.Write("<img src="display.aspx?id=" + g.ToString() + "">");

This code is pretty straightforward, and it works flawlessly in Test. In Production, under heavy load, though, it fails ~1% of the time. If Mr Smith visits the site and attempts to display 4 pieces of image data, 2 of them might be saved in his session and two of them be lost. The InProc session object for Mr. Smith exists. The traffic logs show he clicked 4 times, each with a different id param. But there are only 2 guids in his InProc session object, instead of 4. The 2 session objects we did capture do correspond to 2 of the id's shown in the traffic log (his 1st and 3rd clicks.) The traffic logs for his 2nd and 4th clicks, though, show a guid id that's not in his InProc session object.

Lines 1&3 of the above code obviously worked for those 2nd and 4th clicks, or he'd not have had the id in the URI for him to click. Line 2, however seems to have failed silently in some way. If any exception had been thrown, I'd expect we'd not ever have arrived at line 3. I can't see any way for the user to receive the guid id, but the session to fail to have it. The other possibility is line 2 worked successfully, but the variable later disappeared, how I cannot even imagine.

We're running a web farm, but users constantly return to the same server. I'm researching now whether there's any way users might be slipping off to the other server.

Cookies And The Session State Object?

Mar 29, 2011

my main concern is using Session. I've always been under the impression that if you use the following statements (not that I would):

Session["newVar1"] = "a new session variable";
Session["newVar2"] = "a new session variable";
Session["newVar3"] = aLargeVariableThatHoldsLotsOfData;

You would be creating 3 new session cookies that hold the particular value. But I think my asp book is indicating that you would actually create 3 new variables in your session state object and ASP would only pass a unique Session ID (as a cookie?) in the response, and would get this ID upon the next request and associate that ID with your Session State Object (that IIS has stored in memory..?):


That doesn't seem ideal for a website with lots of traffic. A server that is storing and maintaining thousands and thousands of instances of session state per website seems like way too much overload.
I'm trying to see what's going on on my own, but I'm having trouble.. I can't find my site's cookies anywhere on my machine (IE/windows xp). I've checked C:Documents and Settings icholasrCookies and C:Documents and Settings icholasrLocal SettingsTemporary Internet Files which, according to this yahoo answer, IE cookies are stored as well. I'm using ticket authentication in my app which stores a auth cookie on the client, so a cookie from my site has to be somewhere..

C# - Converting From Saving In Session To Cookies?

Mar 5, 2011

So, I am working on a demo web dashboard. Previously, I had been using Session to store settings about the dashboard, but I would like to move it to a more persistent means of saving settings.It seems to me that using cookies would be my best bet. I'm not entirely positive I have the time to work everything out for writing to/from a database properly.That being said, I might be in over my head on some assumptions I had made about the similarities between Session and Cookies. Currently, I have some code like this:

public Dictionary<string, RadPageViewSetting> PageViewStates

State Management :: Set Session Using Cookies?

May 12, 2010

i have 3 pages, lets say pageA, pageB and pageC.

1 . From "pageB", i'm sending some data to "pageA" and and retriving the result with using HTTPWebRequest and HTTPWebResponse classes. I have no problem with this

2. pageA fills some session data, like Session["CustomerInfo"] .

3. After retrving some data from "pageA", I'm redirecting from "pageB" to "pageC".

At PageC, i want to use session variables which i fill at "pageA":

At pageB, i get the CookieContainer of the HTTPWebRequest object and it retrives correct SessionId.

And here is the code that redirects pageB to pageC:

foreach (Cookie cookie in SessionCookieContainer.GetCookies(new Uri(http://localhost/bla/bla)))
Response.Cookies.Add(new HttpCookie(cookie.Name, cookie.Value));
Request.Cookies.Add(new HttpCookie(cookie.Name, cookie.Value));

At pageC , Request.Cookies and Response.Cookies are set truly, as i sent them from pageB, but there is nothing in the session. Session.Count is zero. And SessionId is different from the value which is stored in cookies.

Security :: Internet Explorer 8 Denies Session Cookies

Jul 22, 2010

i am having this weird problem only when i deploy my site [localy Everything works fine] when you try loging in from IE 8, the page simple refreshes! and no authentication takes place After lot of research, i found out that Internet Explorer 8 denies session cookies and to confirm this, i unchecked Enable protected mode (can be found in, internet options, security), and then tried logging in, it worked perfectly fine just like it did in other browsers [Firefox and google chrome]. I have found one solution which is to lower the security level, but i cant tell every visitor on my site to do that since its not practical.

Security :: Using Cookies And Session To Store Login Information?

Feb 11, 2010

It has been a while since I've built an entire ASP.NET web application from the ground up but I'm about to jump in again. I've built many individual pages, controls, web parts, etc. recently, but nothting 'soup to nuts' for a couple of years. My question is in regards to login security control. I do not want to use the built in ASP.NET Memberhip functionality for various reasons and already have custom code that authenticates the user, controls passwords, login attempts, etc. I am really concerned though about how to validate that the user is logged in (and the best way to do it). For instance, right now I use a Base page that all of my .aspx pages inherit from. In the OnInit() method, it executes code which includes:


I set the Session["LoggedIn"] object to "true" after the user has successfully been authenticated at the Login.aspx page. So, when a user attempts to access any page in the application, if that Session object isn't true, they will be redirected (you can't visit any page without being logged in). This all works great, but I'm thinking I need something more and that brings me here. First, do I need more? Is this enough? I was thinking about creating a cookie with a GUID value and the SessionID (both encrypted perhaps?) and adding that to my Base page so it checks both the current Session["LoggedIn"] value
and the values in the cookie.

How Does Session Handling Work / Sessions Eat Up All Memory If Cookies Are Disabled

Oct 28, 2010

In my project I have configured .NET's sessions to go into database.

I also have a global.asax which implements Session_Start().

In Session_Start() I write three things to the session:

The time the session started.

The user's host address.

A serializable device object wrapping the user's agent.

The problem is now that users which don't allow cookies won't allow session cookies either.

(Easily reproducable by putting the site URL to the restricted sites of IE).

If I keep on refreshing (put finger on F5) a new session is created for every request (-> no session cookie). Shortly, the web server process grows to some hundred megabytes.

It does not matter if you use IIS7 or Cassini Local Webserver.

The issue is now: the memory does not get released until the sessions time out. What is the logic here if sessions should really go to database? How long will .NET keep them in memory? Eventually, you'll even get Out Of Memory exceptions!

Anybody know? How to detect and prevent such (almost malicious) "attacks"?

How To Use A MembershipProvider To Carry Over Users' Session Data Stored In Cookies Set By ColdFusion

Feb 15, 2011

I'm working on adding a new webapp to an existing website. I've been directed to write the webapp in ASP.NET. The existing website is written in ColdFusion. For the most part, the ASP.NET webapp is completely stand-alone, but it needs to interact with the ColdFusion code in one important way - if somebody logs in to the ColdFusion site, we don't want them to have to log in again when visiting an ASP.NET page.

When someone logs in to the ColdFusion site, their username is stored in a cookie, along with a login token that can be looked up in our database. My .NET is a little rusty, so I'm having trouble visualizing how the ASP.NET code should use this data. I've already written a simple MembershipProvider that can be used to log in/out out the ASP.NET app using the data in our existing database tables, which are shared with the ColdFusion code.

What I'd like to know is - how can I make sure the ASP.NET app detects the cookies set by the ColdFusion app (I imagine they'd be sent to the ASP.NET pages, since everything is hosted on one domain), and automatically logs the user in using the MembershipProvider and Forms Authentication, using the credentials supplied in the cookie? I'm thinking that putting some kind of cookie check and log in function in the Global.asax file, set to run every page load for every page... but that seems kind of clunky. Also, do people still use the Global.asax file anyway? I had thought there was a more modern method.... Also, how can I manually log someone in using Forms Authentication and a custom membership provider? Currently my code allows the user to log in using the provided login control, but I'm not sure how to log the user in without them having to do anything.Looking over the MembershipProvider tutorials and the MSDN documentation it seems to me like the answer should be staring me in the face, but for some reason I just can't see it. Maybe not enough coffee....
