Forms authentication accross applications

Fred

Hello,

With forms authentication, we can share the authentication cookie
accross applications.
Is it possible to do the same for the role management ?

I have a web service which uses customs MemberShip and Role providers.
The client app first authenticate calling this service, then will
connect to other services.
The user identity is correctly retrieved in the other services, but not
the roles (cacheRolesInCookie is set to true)

Forget this.
The role cookie can be deleted at any moment.
So I wrote another «readonly» custom role provider to ask the
authentication web service when necessary.
