Chapter 19. Using Forms-Based Authentication


  • Working with Forms Authentication

  • Working with Passport Authentication

In this chapter, you examine two methods of password-protecting pages in a Web application. Both methods use cookie authentication with HTML forms.

In the first part of this chapter, you learn how to use ASP.NET Forms authentication. When you use Forms authentication, you can store usernames and passwords in a custom data store, such as the Web.Config file, an XML file, or a database table.

Next, you learn how to configure an ASP.NET application to take advantage of Microsoft Passport authentication. Microsoft Passport is a centralized authentication service that enables users to use the same username and password across multiple Web sites.
