Re-architect application / security issue

Discussion in 'ASP .Net Security' started by Avonelle Lovhaug, Aug 21, 2003.

  1. I have an ASP.NET application that is currently split into
    3 separate VS.NET projects. One project is the
    administration interface for creating web-based surveys
    (uses windows authentiation). One project is the user
    interface for providing surveys (forms authentication).
    The last project is the user interface for checking survey
    status (forms authentication). Each of these projects has
    a separate group of authorized users. The projects
    utilizing forms authentication verify users from a table
    in a SQL Server database. The admin interface is only
    available to a few internal users, which is why Windows
    authentication was used - no reason to create a new table,
    etc. just for internal users.

    I would really like to rearchitect this application in
    such a way that I can combine the app into one VS.NET
    project. Right now, this application is deployed on a
    single web server. The project for providing surveys is
    installed in the root folder for IIS, and the other two
    projects are installed in virtual directories off of the
    root. I'd like to keep a similar structure in the new
    architecture - placing the status and admin interfaces in
    separate folders off the main application.

    The problem I'm running into is that I can't mix Windows
    and Forms authentication. I'm thinking that I may switch
    to Forms authenticatio for the admin application, and just
    set up a limited # of users in the web.config itself. But
    is there a better way? And if I use forms authentication
    for both the root project and the files in the two
    folders, do those folders have to be set up as virtual
    directories in order to have their own Login.aspx? Or will
    everything go back to the same Login.aspx in the root
    folder?

    Has anyone else tried to do anything similar? Thanks.
