This chapter continues the topic of security and applies it to the protection and security of ASP.NET web applications. Whether you are building a small ASP.NET application for your corporate intranet or an e-commerce application that will accept tens of thousands of transactions per day, you will at some point be faced with the questions: How do I protect my website? Ensure the privacy of my users? Protect and secure the data for my website?
This chapter will get you thinking about those questions and provide some design patterns for solving those problems as well as walk you through some sample code that shows you some of the ways in which ASP.NET and the .NET Framework can provide varying levels of security and protection for your users, your data, and your server.
