Could you rephrase the question? I know what maintaining state is, but I
have no idea what maintaining state between a public and a secured site is.

for instance, we have a payment page that rests on our secure site (SSL 443)
but the rest of the site is on our public web server. what if some summary
info needs to be passed to the secured site how does that work? Or would you
not want to pass info that way?

thanks,

Ah, you don't want to maintain state. You want to pass data from one web app
to another. So, the real issue is messaging. If the data is not sensitive,
you can pass it via QueryString or Form Post. If the data is sensitive, you
may want to encrypt it, if the 2 apps are on different servers. You could
use Windows Messaging Services to send the data securely. You could pass
data via SQL Server database. That's a few ideas.
