To implement forms-based security, you need to follow three steps:
1. Set the authentication mode to forms authentication in the web.config file. (If
you prefer a graphical tool, you can use the WAT during development or IIS
Manager after deployment.)
2. Restrict anonymous users from a specific page or directory in your application.
3. Create the login page.
You define the type of security in the web.config file by using the <authentication> tag.
The following example configures the application to use forms authentication by using the
<authentication> tag. It also sets several of the most important settings using a nested <forms>
tag.
Namely, it sets the name of the security cookie, the length of time it will be considered valid (in
minutes),
and the page that allows the user to log in.
<configuration>
<system.web>
<authentication mode="Forms">
<forms name="MyAppCookie"
loginUrl="~/Login.aspx"
protection="All"
timeout="30" path="/" />
</authentication>
...
</system.web>
</configuration>
To control who can and can’t access your website, you need to add access control rules to the
<authorization> section of your web.config file. Here’s an example that duplicates the default
behavior:
<configuration>
<system.web>
<authentication mode="Forms">
<forms loginUrl="~/Login.aspx" />
</authentication>
<authorization>
<allow users="*" />
</authorization>
...
</system.web>
</configuration>
The asterisk (*) is a wildcard character that explicitly permits all users to use the application,
even
those who haven’t been authenticated. But even if you don’t include this line in your
application’s
