To validate a user against the Membership framework, use the method into its equivalent encrypted or hashed state and then compares it with what was returned from the database.If the password stored in the database matches the formatted password entered by the user, the credentials are valid.Let's update our login page (~/ tutorial, creating an interface with two Text Boxes for the username and password, a Remember Me checkbox, and a Login button (see Figure 1).The code validates the entered credentials against a hard-coded list of username and password pairs (Scott/password, Jisun/password, and Sam/password). Figure 1: The Login Page's Interface Includes Two Text Boxes, a Check Box List, and a Button (Click to view full-size image) The login page's user interface can remain unchanged, but we need to replace the Login button's Label is displayed, informing the user that their username or password was incorrect. To test that the login page works as expected, attempt to login with one of the user accounts you created in the preceding tutorial.The Membership API includes a method for programmatically validating a user's credentials against the user store. NET ships with the Login Web control, which renders a user interface with textboxes for the username and password and a button to log in.We will also look at how to customize the login control's appearance and behavior. For web sites that use forms authentication, a user logs on to the website by visiting a login page and entering their credentials.Or, if you have not yet created an account, go ahead and create one from the .
Much like with creating user accounts, credentials can be validated programmatically or declaratively.
method, and then examined using the Create User Wizard Web control.
However, the login page currently validates the supplied credentials against a hard-coded list of username and password pairs.
Unfortunately, there is no built-in tool for unlocking a user account.
In order to unlock an account, you can modify the database directly - change the table for the appropriate user account - or create a web-based interface that lists locked out accounts with options to unlock them.
To prevent this, it is essential to encrypt the network traffic by using Secure Socket Layers (SSL).
