Simpler question

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

  1. Alright - here's a simpler part of my previous questions.
    If I have an application that uses forms authentication,
    is it possible to have one Login.aspx file for the root
    application, and a separate Login.aspx file for a folder
    within the root application, only to be used when someone
    tries to reference that folder?

    From what I can tell, I will have to use the same
    authentication cookie for both folders, and utilize some
    kind of role based security to identify who can access the
    root and who can access the folder (in my case, it will
    likely be one or the other but not both). Right?

    Thanks,

  2. I'm not a doctor :) but I do recall reading you can have a web.config in
    each folder and hence it would make sense that you can have another
    authorization & authentication section in that sub folder's web.config.
