How to implement Windows authentication and authorization in ASP.NET

This step-by-step article describes how to implement Windows authentication and authorization in an ASP.NET application. To use the built in security of Windows and ASP.NET, implement Windows authentication and authorization on groups and users. To use Windows authentication, you must adjust settings in both Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) and the ASP.NET application Web.config file.

Requirements

  • Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional, Windows 2000 Server, Windows 2000 Advanced Server, or Windows XP Professional
  • Microsoft .NET Framework
  • Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS)
  • Microsoft Visual Studio .NET

Authentication and authorization

Windows authentication and Windows authorization are two terms that are frequently interchanged. However, they do not have the same meaning. Windows authentication permits the recipient to determine the user's identity. Windows authorization determines the resources to which a user may gain access.

Configure Web application for Windows authentication

To configure your Web application for Windows authentication, follow these steps:

  • Create an ASP.NET Web Application named ASPNETWinAuth. By default, theWebForm1.aspx file appears.
  • In the HTML view of WebForm1.aspx, replace the existing code with the following sample code:

    <%=User.Identity.Name%>

  • Click Start, point to Programs, point to Administrative tools, and then click Internet Information Services.
  • The Internet Information Services MMC appears. Expand Computer, and then expand a Web site that uses Windows authentication.
  • Click the ASPNETWinAuth Web site application.
  • On the Action menu, click Properties.
  • In Properties, click the Directory Security tab.
  • Under Anonymous access and authentication control, click Edit.
  • In Authentication Methods, click to select Integrated Windows authentication. Click to clear all other check boxes.
  • Click OK.
  • In Properties, click OK. The ASPNETWinAuth Web application is now configured to accept valid user accounts.

Configure the ASP.NET application

After you configure the IIS Web site for Integrated Windows Authentication, you must configure the ASP.NET application to recognize authenticated users. To do this, you must change the Web.config file. In the Web.config file, locate the <authentication> tag, and then set the mode attribute to Windows, as in the following example:

<authentication mode="Windows" />

Test authentication

To test your Windows authentication setting, follow these steps:

  • In Microsoft Internet Explorer, view the WebForm1.aspx page. This page is located in the Http://Localhost folder. For example:

    http://Localhost/ASPNETWinAuth/WebForm1.aspx

  • Because Integrated Windows Authentication uses the current Windows user information on the client computer for the authentication, it does not immediately prompt the user for a user name and password. However, if the authentication exchange cannot identify the user, a dialog box appears that prompts the user for a Windows user account user name and password.
  • Type a valid user name and password. When the page loads, your user name appears in the following format:

    Domain Name\User Name

Restrict access

In ASP.NET, you set authorization to the application by adding settings in the Web.config file. You can specify which users or groups are permitted to have access to what resources as follows:
To permit all users of an NT Group named Managers to have access to your resources, use the following code:

<configuration>
      <system.web>
        <authorization>
          <allow roles="domainname\Managers" />
          <deny users="*" />
        </authorization>
      </system.web>
    </configuration>

To permit only specific users to have access, use the following code:

<configuration>
      <system.web>
        <authorization>
          <allow users="domainname\user1,domainname\user2,domainname\user3" />
          <deny users="*" />
        </authorization>
      </system.web>
    </configuration>

Note You can specify multiple roles or users by using a comma separated list. Verify that you use the correct case when you specify the configuration file element and the associated attribute values. This code is case sensitive.

According to Donald M Clark (web developer) article, When a file gets deleted it goes to the trash, right? If you don't want anyone to restore these files, emptying the recycle bin seems to be the best way to make it unrecoverable. This is not the end of your file yet. Because what actually happens when you empty your trash, is it just removes the index of the file. In Windows Server 2003, Disk Management can not directly change partition size. But you can use other utility to realize it. One is the "disk part.exe" utility built-in Windows server 2003. It can manage disks both Basic and Dynamic, partitions, and volumes. This utility has a command-line interface, so users need to know the correct command.

Registries are Windows's internal database. All sort of information are stored there, from hardware and drivers info to applications' settings. After each removal of any device, like a printer or video card, pieces of information remain there. The biggest problem is when you uninstall a program. Unfortunately, many applications fail to erase all their data on removal. A solution for this is to run "regedit" and manually search for all references to the program and erase them. size is specified in megabytes (MB). If the user does not specify, the system will add all continuously space to extend the partition. For dynamic disk, if no disk number is defined, the volume will extend on the current disk. If the user type "no error", when an error occur, disk part will continue to process commands as if the error did not occur.

By hardware management I mean memory and hard-disk management. As you know, each program uses some of your computer's memory. Memory allocation is determined by how much the program needs and, of course, if the resource is available. When the application stops, the used blocks of memory should be freed. But this is not happening all the time. So, when a new programs requests memory to run, your computer will slow down because it will compete with other applications for the remaining resources.

The same situation appears when you remove files from your computer. They are not really erased. They remain on your hard-disk and affect other files that you want to read or write. It's the same principle as described above regarding memory usage. To avoid problems you should use at least once a month a hard-disk defragmenter, in order to clean remaining pieces of information.

Upgrading your computer - even after implementing all the methods suggested your computer does not speed Vista boot up, you might have to consider replacing some of your hard ware - may be the hard disk, video card etc. Just spending a few minutes to use the above methods can speed up my computer at ultra fast speeds! Click on the below link to get started with dependable registry cleaners to clean up your system.

The index is like the computer's table of contents. Every file has its own index, so the computer can locate whatever file you wish to show faster. If the index is gone, the computer won't be able to view the file, but the actual file itself resides somewhere in the computer's free space, waiting to be overwritten. The computer's ove.

Windows Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: Easy Steps to Reset Windows Server 2012 R2 Lost Admin Password?

clock October 24, 2016 12:36 by author Dan

According to Lan Lin Fan article, Is resetting Windows server 2012 r2 admin password difficult, if we lost the the privilege to logon or access server 2012 r2 computer or domain controller? The answer is not absolute. For example, if you have password reset disk or another administrator available, Windows server 2012 r2 lost admin password would be reset instantly. Or if you have backup Windows system status with disk, such as Windows system restore disc, you could restore Windows server 2012 r2 to early system point.

Even though there are not anything available for recovering server 2012 r2 password, Windows system 2012 r2 installation disk and third-party recovery tool would help you too. First, Windows system installation disk reset Windows server 2012 r2 admin password.

Preparation: a copy of Windows server 2012 r2 installation disk

The key step of resetting server 2012 r2 admin password with installation disk is to replace Utilman.exe.

1. Boot off Windows disk and select the "Repair your computer" option from the lower left-hand corner.
2. Get to the option to open the Command Prompt.
3. Type the following commands to back up the utilman.exe file:
MOVE C:WindowsSystem32Utilman.exe C:WindowsSystem32Utilman.exe.bak
4. Copy cmd.exe and rename it Utilman.exe.
COPY C:WindowsSystem32cmd.exe C:WindowsSystem32Utilman.exe
Now you can go ahead and reboot your machine. When it's done booting up again and you are at the Logon screen click on the Ease of access icon. Now you have replaced Utilman.exe with cmd.exe.
5. Command Prompt opens, type following commands:
net user administrator *

Once you press Enter, you will be asked to set a new password and then confirm it. When entering new one, don't worry if you can't see it, because it is invisible, however it has been remembered. Once you're logged in again, don't forget to delete Utilman.exe and then rename Utilman.exe.bak back to plain old Utilman.exe. Second, reset server 2012 r2 admin password with third-party Windows password genius.

Windows Password Genius has four versions available, standard, professional, advanced and raid. And the raid version is special, because it works for raid server Windows domain or local admin password reset. The advanced is general version, working on both server and client computers.

So choose appropriate Windows password recovery version to burn a password reset disk and then recover Windows server administrator password.

Preparation: Windows Password Genius Advanced/Raid, available computer and bootable USB drive.

1. Install Windows Password Genius Raid, and run it on available computer.
2. Insert bootable USB drive into this available computer and choose USB, click "Begin burning" to create password reset disk with USB.

Windows Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: Save Your Important Data Using Windows Server Backup

clock October 10, 2016 21:11 by author Dan

Windows Server Backup is a unique feature that enables regular backups and recovery solutions for computers running Windows Server 2008. The new backup and recovery technology was introduced to replace the previous NTBackup feature that was in earlier Windows versions. This program automatically performs back up operations for critical data and can also be used to restore the data for supported applications. In fact, the backup feature can be used for backing up a full Server or selected volumes according to user's needs.

With this server backup, it is easy to manage disasters when they occur. This is possible through recovery options for backed up volumes, folders, files, applications or even system state. A system recovery using Server Backup program can restore a complete server to a new hard drive in case of disk volume failures. This can be done using the full Windows recovery environment. Besides local computers, this new Backup also supports creation and management of backups for remote computers.

The server backup solution is an appropriate feature not only for system administrators but for anyone who needs backup solutions. It is suitable for small businesses as well as large companies. In fact, you do not need to be an IT professional to use new this new backup program. It is actually suited for individuals with basic computer skills especially in data recovery and backup. Technically, Windows Server Backup also provides APIs for cloud integration.

To run this program, you have to be in the group of administrators or Backup operators as a special consideration. Using the MMC (Microsoft Management Console) snap-in, you can actually manage the backups of another computer with Windows Server Backup. However, since the firewall is enabled by default in Windows 2008, you might encounter several security issues in the process. Luckily, these issues can be resolved by making relevant changes in the firewall. With these exciting new features included in this feature Backup program, it becomes much easier to perform and manage data recovery operations in a convenient manner; its few drawbacks outlined below notwithstanding.

One drawback with Windows 2008 is that current users of previous versions of Windows Server cannot upgrade old settings to the new Windows Server Backup feature. These settings have to be reconfigured after running an upgrade. A separate and dedicated disk is also required for running scheduled backups. Moreover, backing up data on tape is no longer supported in Server program and only locally attached disks can be backed up. To recover data from backups created with previous Server versions, you have to install NTBackup for Windows Server 2008.

With its faster backup technology, the backup software is a convenient and versatile backup tool in Windows server 2008. Restoration of items is much simpler as you can selectively choose what to restore. Backups can also be scheduled to run automatically without any user input. One-time backups can be performed to complement the automatic backups. With cloud integration, cloud backups can be synchronized with local backups through the MMC snap-in in Server Backup solution.

Windows Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: Demystifying the Windows Registry

clock October 10, 2016 19:40 by author Armend

Demystifying the Windows Registry

The registry is a key component of the Windows operating system. It is so important, that without it, Windows would not even run. When a new piece of hardware or software is installed in Windows, it stores its configuration into the Registry. This allows Windows to retrieve that information at later dates such as when it is starting up. As Windows starts it will read the configuration in the registry and know what drivers need to be loaded, what settings to be applied, and what resources need to be allocated in order for this equipment to work. Because this information is stored in the Registry on your hard drive, Windows has this information available each time it boots up.

The registry, though, is not only for operating system settings. User preferences and application settings are stored in the Registry as well. When you change your desktop background or screen saver, these details are stored in the Registry. Now when you shutdown Windows and start it up again at a later date, your preferences are available and loaded automatically. Application settings such as what directory you would like to download files to or what your default font is in a word processor are stored here as well. As you can see the Registry contains information that is not only vital to the use of the operating system, but also essential in allowing you to customize Windows to your particular tastes.

Structure of the Registry

The Registry is a hierarchical structure similar to what you see when looking at a directory/file tree on your computer. You have a main key, or Hive, with Keys, Subkeys and then Values. Each of these are discussed below:
Hives - Hives are the top most portions of the hierarchical data tree with each Hive containing a certain category of information. For example one Hive may contain the configuration that applies to the particular user logged on, while another Hive will contain information about the hardware installed in the computer. Depending on the version Windows that you are running there will be 5 or 6 different hives. Below we have outlined the 6 possible hives:

  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER (HKCU) -
        This Hive contains the preferences and configuration for the particular user who is currently logged in. If a different user is logged onto the same machine, then the information in this Hive would change corresponding to that particular user's configuration.
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE (HKLM) -
        This Hive contains the configuration for the actual computer. The information in this Hive remains the same regardless of the user currently logged on.
  • HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT (HKCR) -
        This Hive contains the information which pertains to the core user interface such as file associations and shortcuts.
  • HKEY_USERS (HKU) -
        This Hive contains the user information for all the users that have ever logged onto this computer.
  • HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG (HKCC) -
        This Hive contains the information about current hardware configuration. This Hive is linked to the HKLM Hive.
  • HKEY_DYN_DATA (HKDD) -
    This Hive is found only on Windows 95/98/ME. It contains information about hardware Plug and Play. This Hive is linked to the HKLM Hive.
  • Keys - Keys are an organizational unit in the Registry. Keys are containers that can either contain values or further subkeys. Subkeys themselves, can contain further subkeys. Keys are similar to folders in that they can contain further subkeys or the file, or what we call values in the Registry.
  • Values - Values contain the actual data that is being stored in a Key or a Subkey. There are quite a few different types of values that can be stored in the Registry, but the most common that you will see are binary, strings, and DWORD values.
    When visualizing the Registry you should look at the Hives, Keys, and Subkeys as the path that you will need to navigate in order to reach the final stored information which is the Value.

An example Registry key can be seen below. This Registry key controls what your initial start page will be when using Internet Explorer.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\\Start Page

When we break this Key down to its components we can see the following:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER is the Hive that this key is associated with.
Software is a Key
Microsoft - This is a Subkey
Internet Explorer - This is a Subkey
Main - This is a Subkey
Start Page - This is the Value that the actual data is stored in. For this particular Value, the data will be the start page that you want Internet Explorer to use.

Where the Registry is stored

The Registry itself is stored on your computer in certain files. Below we detail what files and their locations are used to store the Registry based upon the particular version of Windows.
For Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003, the Registry files are stored in the following directories:
%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\Config
%USERPROFILE%\ntuser.dat

The names for the registry files are:

Sam, Sam.log, Sam.sav
Security, Security.log, Security.sav
Software, Software.log, Software.sav
System, System.alt, System.log, System.sav
System, System.alt, System.log, System.sav, Ntuser.dat, Ntuser.dat.log
Default, Default.log, Default.sav
For Windows 98, the registry files are named User.dat and System.dat and are stored in the C:\Windows directory.
For Windows Millennium Edition, the registry files are named Classes.dat, User.dat, and System.dat and are stored in the C:\Windows directory.

How to edit the Registry

In order to modify values in the Registry you need to use a program called a Registry Editor. Windows comes with a program called regedit.exe or otherwise known as Registry Editor. To launch this program you should click on the Start button, then click on the Run option, and in the field type regedit.exe and press the OK button. This will launch the Registry Editor.
When you open Registry Editor you will see two panes. The left pane is your navigation pane. By default it will list all the Hives with a + or - next to each one. You can click the + to expand the tree underneath that Hive revealing Keys and Subkeys. You would keep navigating the Subkeys until you reach the desired location and then click on it once to highlight it. Then you will see in the right pane a listing of the values associated with that key.
In the screenshow below you will see an image of the Registry Editor where I have navigated to the key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Colors

In Figure 1 above, the Hive that we are in is HKEY_CURRENT_USER. They Key is Control Panel and the Subkey is Colors. The right hand portion shows all the Values contained in the subkey Colors.
To modify a Value, you would double-click on the value name and a screen similar to Figure 2 below would appear.

You then would type in the appropriate information into the Value data field and press the OK button.
To delete values, instead of double-clicking on a value name you would right-click on the value and then select Delete. This method can also be used to delete keys or subkeys. To add a value you click on the Edit menu option and then select New and pick the appropriate type.
It is also possible to export and import Registry values into your Registry. To export a particular Key or Subkey you would click once on the key you would like to export and then click on File and then Export. Then select a directory and filename to export the Registry key to. Likewise, you can also Import keys into the Registry by clicking on Import and then selecting the file that you had exported previously.

Backing up the Registry

Viruses, Spyware, and other Malware can cause corruption and damage to the Registry. With this in mind, it is important to backup your registry so that you know you have a clean copy stored safely on your hard drive in case of an emergency. Below we have outlined the steps to backup and restore your Registry under the various versions of Windows.

Backing Up the Windows 95 Registry

  • Reboot your computer and when you see "Starting Windows 95" press the F8 key. Then choose Safe Mode Command Prompt Only from the startup menu and press enter.
  • At the command prompt type the following lines, pressing ENTER on your keyboard after each line:
  • cd \windows

attrib -r -h -s system.dat
attrib -r -h -s user.dat
copy system.dat *.bak
copy user.dat *.bak

WARNING: These steps make the assumption that you do not have any files named system.bak or user.bak. If you do have files with these names, change the extension in the steps above to something else.

  • Restart your computer.

Restoring the Windows 95 Registry

  • Reboot your computer and when you see "Starting Windows 95" press the F8 key. Then choose Safe Mode Command Prompt Only from the startup menu and press enter.
  • At the command prompt type the following lines, pressing ENTER on your keyboard after each line:

    attrib -r -h -s user.dat
    attrib -r -h -s user.da0
    ren system.dat system.daa
    ren system.da0 system.da1
    ren user.dat user.daa
    ren user.da0 user.da1
    copy system.bak system.dat
    copy user.bak user.dat

WARNING : This will restore the previous backup that you had made. If you had chosen an extension other than .bak when you had backed up the Registry previously, then substitute that extension above.

Restart your computer.

Backing Up the Windows 98/ME Registry

  • Click the Start button, then click Run.
  • Type scanregw in the field and press the OK button.
  • When the program has finished scanning the Registry for errors it will ask if you would like to back up the Registry.
