    I have an asp.net site and I want to provide automatic login when a user
    returns to my site, similar to amazon.com.

    Currently my site authenticates the user and generates a token when the user
    has been validated, this token is unique per login and is valid unitl the
    user logouts or their session has timed out.

    How would I achieve automatic login? Do I have to store the username and
    password in the cookie?

    please advise....

    Cheers in advance

    At what point is the token invalidated? Can you just persist the token and
    store the token itself in a cookie?
