Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if SSL is required to return the role names cookie to the server; otherwise, false. The default is false.

You can specify whether SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is required to return the role names cookie to the server in your application by setting the cookieRequireSSL attribute in the Web.config file for your ASP.NET application. For more information, see Secure.

The following example shows the element in the system.web section of the Web.config file for an ASP.NET application. It specifies that the application uses a SqlRoleProvider instance and sets cookieRequireSSL to true.

<roleManager defaultProvider="SqlProvider" 
  enabled="true"
  cacheRolesInCookie="true"
  cookieName=".ASPROLES"
  cookieTimeout="30"
  cookiePath="/MyApplication"
  cookieRequireSSL="true"
  cookieSlidingExpiration="true"
  cookieProtection="Encrypted" >
  <providers>
    <add
      name="SqlProvider"
      type="System.Web.Security.SqlRoleProvider"
      connectionStringName="SqlServices"
      applicationName="MyApplication" />
  </providers>
</roleManager>
