Passing user from unsecure to secure domain in asp.net

P: n/a
Hi All,

I have an ecommerce site that resides mainly on an unsecure server for
browsing the catalogue and only passes the user to a secure area when
its time checkout. The secure domain however is not located on the
same URL as the unsecure site - it is hosted on a virtual directory of
the ISP's secure domain.

The way i would have traditionally passed the user across to the
secure domain is by providing a POST form containing the users id as
well as a db stored, transfer string for security. The secure domain
application would then pick up the form values, verify the transfer
string and set up a new session on the secure domain.

However, in asp.net i cannot use a form to post to the secure server.
Most of the advice when it comes to posting away from a web form is
that you shouldn't have to post away from a form, but i dont see
anyway around this.

I'm sure that i'm just not think about this in the right way and there
is probably a simple answer - asp.net hasn't let me down yet!

Thanks in advance,

S
