Windows Authentication With ASP.NET Web Pages

07 August 2013 19:34

ASP.NET Web Pages WebMatrix

The default authentication mechanism built into ASP.NET Web Pages site templates is Forms Authentication via the SimpleMembershipProvider, which is designed to enable authentication of users against a database. This requires the user to know their user name and password, and to enter those whenever they want to log in to access restricted areas within a site. If you are using the ASP.NET Web Pages framework to build an Intranet site that will be hosted within your own corporate network (i.e. client machines and web server are in the same domain), you can use Integrated Windows Authentication instead which simplifies authentication dramatically.

SignalR And Knockout In ASP.NET Web Pages Using WebMatrix

27 December 2012 20:17

ASP.NET Web Pages WebMatrix Razor

SignalR is a library that simplifies the creation and management of persistent connections between web servers and clients. This facilitates the development of applications that can display updates to data held on the server in real-time. Chat applications are the most obvious beneficiaries of this technology, but line-of-business applications that need to report availability to users can benefit too. Here, I look at extending the canonical SignalR chat example to incorporate a "who's typing" feature, and I also extend my previous Knockout example to use SignalR.
