Making secure ASP.NET

P: n/a

I am writing a small ASP.NET application, and I need to make it secure.

define "secure":
- no eavesdropping on requests or responses between server and client
- users can't access each others data
- even with server access, you can't read user data
- etc...

only the first will benefit from using SSL, the rest is application design.

Hi,
Sorry if I did not define myself will with 'secure'. Let me explain
with my scenario.

I will be having a login screen. Users will have to enter username and
password to prove themselves. Now I need to maintain the username and
password private, that is if a users tries to hack someone else personal
data, the data that he will get is garbage and so cannot impersonate
himself as the proper user. In the system I will have other data that
will be transmitted between the server and the client, and also this
data needs to be maintained private.

Now the main reason I was thinking of SSL is because SSL is built into
almost all web browsers, and so through out a session a symmetric key
can be negotiated where both server and browser use this key to
communicate confidentially.

Can someone help me out, to do this scenario secure.
Thanks in Advance
