ASP.NET 2.0 Login Controls

Wed Nov 05, 2008 6:25 pm

I'm working on an ASP.NET 2.0 project that I would like to use the
ASP.NET Login Controls with. My problem is that my system includes a
smart client. The smart client needs to download the aspnet_users and
aspnet_membership table with the user information to a local database
because users will need to be able to log in while the smart client is
not connected to the Internet. My question is, how can I authenticate
against the downloaded user tables? The password column seems to be
either encrypted or hashed. So, how can I match it up against the
password entered from the login form on the smart client?

You have to manually generate the encryption and decryption keys in
ASP.NET 2.0's machine.config file. Each computer needs the exact same
encryption and decryption keys in its machine config file (normally
each would be randomly generated and unique). They use this technique
in web farm scenarios. Here is a link that should get you going.
hope this
