Web site content determined by login credentials?

P: n/a
We are an architectural firm, and we would like to integrate a secure area
with a username and password on our web site that would allow our clients to
view progress information pertinent to their projects. I'm the only guy
here, and I'm more of connection/server guy than a web designer, so please
excuse my ignorance. Any guidance will greatly be appreciated. We're using
Win2k and IIS for a web server, but we will soon be upgrading to Server
2003. I think I can handle the actual content pages, but I'm getting stuck
on how the username relates to the content being viewed and how to pass that
data.

Do you have a particular problem or are you after the big picture ?

Generally this is done using a database. For example a database could hold
the list of projects and users as well as each valid (project, user) couple
(assuming a user could take part in multiple projects and a project could be
viewed by multiple users).

When a user is connected on the site, a query retrieves all projects for the
current user (the user identity being a parameter of this query). The page
uses the retrieved information to create the final HTML page that contains
only allowed projects
