Managing Users

  • Patrick A. Lorenz


With the hrst version of ASP.NET, you already had the option to authenticate users against several services. This served as the basis for allowing individual users access to specific areas of a web site. For intranet solutions, you could rely on Windows Authentication integrated by IIS. In the case of public web sites for the Internet, you could use Forms Authentication. The latter offered the possibility to place user-specific data in the web. conf ig configuration file. Additionally, custom systems could be used to check user data against a database, for example. If your application required individual roles in this context, the situation started to get a little bit complicated.
