Abstract

On one hand, forms authentication solves the critical fundamentals for implementing secure, custom login forms for your ASP.NET applications. On the other hand, the tasks you have to accomplish for implementing the login forms and communicating with the underlying credential store are almost always the same for every web application, and they’re tedious. You should keep in mind one more point: forms authentication provides the infrastructure for authenticating users only. If you are using a custom credentials store, you have to write administration applications for managing users, which need to implement functionality for adding users, removing users, resetting passwords, and much more. Implementing such functionality is fairly similar for every web application and gets boring quickly.
