1. Designing the User Authorization application
The application requires users to log in to gain access to the application’s content pages which do not contain any content because this application is made to demonstrate only the User Authentication features in ASP.NET 2.0. If the user hasn’t registered, the application allows the user to create an account. And if the user forgets his or her password, a password recovery feature can send the user’s password via e-mail. The application also includes a page that lists the name of each user that’s currently logged in. And finally, the application distinguishes between ordinary users and administrators, who can access a special administrator’s page.
As mentioned before, the User Authentication application uses ASP.NET 2.0’s inbuild authorization features. The following are some of the authorization features used for the User Authentication application.
