Forms Authentication Against a Database

posted on 2004-12-12 at 16:09:43 by Joel Ross

We are currently using forms authentication in my current project. The Tourney Pool Manager also uses forms authentication. Both go against a database to determine if the user is authenticated.

It took me quite a while to figure it out on my own. This article would have made things a lot easier! While the sample they show is flawed in a few ways (the database stores passwords in an unencrypted fashion, and the code is susceptable to a sql injection attack), it is a good demonstration of how to use forms authentication with a database.
