Sets the identity of the user for an ASP.NET application when forms authentication is enabled. This class cannot be inherited.

System_CAPS_pubclassFormsAuthenticationTicket

Provides access to properties and values of the ticket used with forms authentication to identify users. This class cannot be inherited.

System_CAPS_pubclassFormsIdentity

Represents a user identity authenticated using forms authentication. This class cannot be inherited.

Provides a way to encrypt or hash data (or both) by using the same algorithms and key values that are used for ASP.NET forms authentication and view state.

System_CAPS_pubclassMembership

Validates user credentials and manages user settings. This class cannot be inherited.

System_CAPS_pubclassMembershipCreateUserException

The exception that is thrown when a user is not successfully created by a membership provider.

System_CAPS_pubclassMembershipPasswordAttribute

Validates whether a password field meets the current password requirements for the membership provider.

System_CAPS_pubclassMembershipPasswordException

The exception that is thrown when a password cannot be retrieved from the password store.

System_CAPS_pubclassMembershipProvider

Defines the contract that ASP.NET implements to provide membership services using custom membership providers.

System_CAPS_pubclassMembershipProviderCollection

A collection of objects that inherit the MembershipProvider abstract class.

System_CAPS_pubclassMembershipUser

Exposes and updates membership user information in the membership data store.

System_CAPS_pubclassMembershipUserCollection

A collection of MembershipUser objects.

System_CAPS_pubclassPassportAuthenticationEventArgs

Obsolete.The event argument passed to the Authenticate event by a PassportAuthenticationModule. Since there is already an identity at this point, this is useful mainly for attaching a custom IPrincipal object to the context using the supplied identity. This class is deprecated.

System_CAPS_pubclassPassportAuthenticationModule

Obsolete.Provides a wrapper around Passport Authentication services. This class cannot be inherited. This class is deprecated.

System_CAPS_pubclassPassportIdentity

Obsolete.Provides a class to be used by PassportAuthenticationModule. It provides a way for an application to access the Ticket method. This class cannot be inherited. This class is deprecated.

System_CAPS_pubclassPassportPrincipal

Obsolete.Represents a Passport-authenticated principal. This class is deprecated.

System_CAPS_pubclassRoleManagerEventArgs

Provides event data for the GetRoles event of the RoleManagerModule class.

System_CAPS_pubclassRoleManagerModule

Manages a RolePrincipal instance for the current user. This class cannot be inherited.

System_CAPS_pubclassRolePrincipal

Represents security information for the current HTTP request, including role membership. This class cannot be inherited.

System_CAPS_pubclassRoleProvider

Defines the contract that ASP.NET implements to provide role-management services using custom role providers.

System_CAPS_pubclassRoleProviderCollection

A collection of objects that inherit the RoleProvider abstract class.

System_CAPS_pubclassRoles

Manages user membership in roles for authorization checking in an ASP.NET application. This class cannot be inherited.

System_CAPS_pubclassSqlMembershipProvider

Manages storage of membership information for an ASP.NET application in a SQL Server database.

System_CAPS_pubclassSqlRoleProvider

Manages storage of role membership information for an ASP.NET application in a SQL Server database.

System_CAPS_pubclassUrlAuthorizationModule

Verifies that the user has permission to access the URL requested. This class cannot be inherited.

System_CAPS_pubclassValidatePasswordEventArgs

Provides event data for the ValidatingPassword event of the MembershipProvider class.

System_CAPS_pubclassWindowsAuthenticationEventArgs

Provides data for the WindowsAuthentication_OnAuthenticate event. This class cannot be inherited.

System_CAPS_pubclassWindowsAuthenticationModule

Sets the identity of the user for an ASP.NET application when Windows authentication is enabled. This class cannot be inherited.

System_CAPS_pubclassWindowsTokenRoleProvider

Gets role information for an ASP.NET application from Windows group membership.

DelegateDescription
System_CAPS_pubdelegateAnonymousIdentificationEventHandler

Represents the method that handles the AnonymousIdentification_Creating event of a AnonymousIdentificationModule.

System_CAPS_pubdelegateDefaultAuthenticationEventHandler

Represents the method that handles the DefaultAuthentication_OnAuthenticate event of a DefaultAuthenticationModule.

System_CAPS_pubdelegateFormsAuthenticationEventHandler

Represents the method that handles the FormsAuthentication_OnAuthenticate event of a FormsAuthenticationModule.

System_CAPS_pubdelegateMembershipValidatePasswordEventHandler

Represents the method that will handle the ValidatingPassword event of the MembershipProvider class.

System_CAPS_pubdelegatePassportAuthenticationEventHandler

Obsolete.Represents the method that handles the PassportAuthentication_OnAuthenticate event of a PassportAuthenticationModule. This class is deprecated.

System_CAPS_pubdelegateRoleManagerEventHandler

Defines the delegate for the GetRoles event of the RoleManagerModule class.

System_CAPS_pubdelegateWindowsAuthenticationEventHandler

Represents the method that handles the WindowsAuthentication_OnAuthenticate event of a WindowsAuthenticationModule.

EnumerationDescription
System_CAPS_pubenumActiveDirectoryConnectionProtection

Specifies the connection protection options supported by the ActiveDirectoryMembershipProvider class.

System_CAPS_pubenumCookieProtection

Describes how information in a cookie is protected.

System_CAPS_pubenumMachineKeyProtection

Specifies values that indicates whether data should be encrypted or decrypted, whether a hash-based message authentication code (HMAC) should be appended or validated, or both.

System_CAPS_pubenumMembershipCreateStatus

Describes the result of a CreateUser operation.

System_CAPS_pubenumMembershipPasswordFormat

Describes the encryption format for storing passwords for membership users.

The Membership class is used by ASP.NET applications to validate user credentials and manage user settings such as passwords and e-mail addresses. The Roles class enables you to manage authorization for your application based on groups of users assigned to roles in the Web application.

Both the Membership class and the Roles class work with providers, classes that access your application's data store to retrieve membership and role information. Membership and role information can be stored in a Microsoft SQL Server database using the SqlMembershipProvider and SqlRoleProvider classes; in an Active Directory using the ActiveDirectoryMembershipProvider and AuthorizationStoreRoleProvider classes, or in a custom data source using implementations of the MembershipProvider and RoleProvider classes.

You configure ASP.NET membership using the membership Element (ASP.NET Settings Schema). When an application using membership is accessed, ASP.NET creates an instance of the Membership class that you can use to query membership information. Provider-specific implementations of the MembershipUser class contain information about the user accessing the page. You can create custom implementations of the MembershipUser class for your application.

You configure ASP.NET roles using the roleManager Element (ASP.NET Settings Schema). ASP.NET creates an instance of the Roles class that contains information about the role membership of the current user.

ASP.NET provides server controls that interact with the Membership class and the Roles class. The Login, CreateUserWizard, and ChangePassword controls work with the Membership class to simplify creating an authenticated Web application, and the LoginView control uses role-specific templates to customize Web pages for specific groups of users.
