Single Sign On Web Site

P: n/a
Hi

I am investigating the possibility writing an application which uses single
sign on with ASP.Net / VB.Net and was wondering if anyone has endeavoured to
do this yet.

I will most likely be using Site Minder as the single sign on engine, and
building the ASP.Net front end to drive it.

Does anyone know where I can find some code on how to manipulate standard
LDAP through vb.net / ASP.Net, as siteminder (to the est of my knowledge)
uses LDAP only.

Also, does anyone have a better idea of how I should do this - if there is a
tried and tested method of implementing single sign on - please let me know
where to find it so that I can investigate.

Many thanks

Rodney Lane.

You can use Forms Authentication. If you have several sites within the same
domain, and if they keep their <machineKey> settings the same, and use Forms
Authentication cookies with the same name, path and domain, then signing
into one site will effectively sign into them all.

Forms Authentication doesn't care whether you validate your users through
LDAP, a database, or by pure guessing.
