Part III.  Web Development Techniques


  • Learn the basics of Web-related security

  • Use forms-based authentication

  • Authorize authenticated users

When you refer to security in a Web application, you're generally considering two basic issues: authenticating users (verifying that a user is someone you want to allow into your site) and authorizing users (granting rights based on the current logged-in user's identity). This chapter introduces both of these topics, providing an example based on the project you've been creating throughout the book.


Security is a huge topic in ASP.NET, and in .NET in general. Because Microsoft has built security into every area of .NET, from code access to application deployment, full coverage of all the .NET security issues and their implications is far beyond the scope of this chapter and this book.
