SSL on single page within ASP.NET application?

P: n/a
Is is possible to make just a single page within an ASP.NET application use
SSL?

I've written an e-commerce application and want to make just the checkout
page use SSL for secure transmission.

If it's not possible to do this, and I have to put the checkout page in it's
own application, what's the best way to pass data between the two
applications? If at all possible, I'd like to avoid using querystrings.

Thanks

Session is out: the SSL part is a different application from the non-SSL part.
(even if it's possible to have both in a single application, the *browser* treats
the SSL site as different, and will not send the session-cookie).

A shared Database is a good option, pass a GUID (difficult to guess correctly)
in the querystring to point to the correct data.

There is a great module on the code project (www.codeproject.com) called
"Secure Webpage Module". I recommend you check it out.

Couldn't find that article on CodeProject.

Thanks
