ASP.NET and SSL

Discussion in 'ASP .Net Security' started by Jaime Stuardo, Nov 6, 2005.

  1. Hi all..

    I'm developing an extranet site using ASP.NET and IIS 5.0 under Windows
    Server 2000.

    Some information is very confidential so I need to implement some secure
    mecanism in order to protect it while trasmitted over the network.

    Should I purchase an SSL certificate such as Verisign or does .NET framework
    provide a way to implement SSL comunications without the need of a
    third-party component? I am new to .NET so I am wondering if .NET has a
    built-in support for SSL. If it has, do you recommend to use it or do you
    advice me to use a third-party certificate because it is more reliable?

    Thanks
    Jaime

    The latter is pretty much like everyone being able to create his or her
    own id card or passport. It's OK for test purposes, but no good in real
    life (production) ;-)
