Question on the FormsAuthentica tion.Encrypt method

I want to encrypt the values of my cookies. I found out that I could
create a FormsAuthentica tionTicket, and use the
FormsAuthentica tion.Encrypt method to encrypt the cookie.

However, I do not want to use FormsAuthentica tion feature. I already
have custom code to redirect the use back to the login page if they
haven't signed on.

My question is can I use the FormsAuthentica tion.Encrypt method to
encrypt my cookies without using the FormsAuthentica tion feature of
ASP.NET?

Tommy,

I think that you could but why not encrypt the cookies with a normal
encryption object? Then you won't have to tie in to all the forms
authentication objects which you may have to code around. Just encrypt the
data you're putting into the cookies and you're all set.

There are many good articles about how to use the encyrption object in .Net,
but if you want a quick and easy to use set of encryption methods I've
developed some. I'm offering all the object's I've built and their source
code on my web site, www.aboutfortunate.com, for free.

Just go to the code library and click the "Encryption " button in the left
menu.

Sincerely,

Everything is working in my authentication process except for the fact that I can't retrieve the "UserData" property from the "FormsAuthenticationTicket". Write before I do a "RedirectFromLoginPage", I check the "UserData" property of the "FormsAuthenticationTicket". It's set to the value "Admin" (a role for the user) which is what I want. Here is the code:

When you call FormsAuthentication.SignOut(), is the FormsAuthentication cookie supposed to be destroyed automatically? I'm creating my FormsAuthentication cookie by doing: HttpCookie oCookie = new HttpCookie(FormsAuthentication.FormsCookieName, sTicket); where sTicket is an encrypted FormsAuthenticationTicket. When I create the FormsAuthenticationTicket, I set its isPersistent property to false.

Hi, i am using forms authentication in an ASP.NET project I am setting the Forms authentication cookie by using: FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage(UserName.Text, false); Now when i review my trace on my page, there are two cookies created that look identical.

I setup FormsAuthentication on a couple websites where it has been working as expected for a long time. I used this code to setup the same type of authentication on a new website I am working on and the Cookie Name is not getting setup the same way. In my Web.config file, I use the following basic settings on both the old and new websites: <authentication mode="Forms"> <forms name="SiteAuth" loginUrl="Logon.aspx" protection="All"

We want to use FormsAuthenticationTickets as part of our ASP.NET security. The current design stores the user's ticket in the db, and later uses the ticket to extract other data from the database. When the user logs out, we use the ticket to delete the ticket from the db, using the encrypted ticket as the key. Problem is, the tickets don't seem to match between being encrypted and then decrypted. For example, the following returns two...
