asp.net windows authentication
Hello. ASP.NET newbie here, so be gentle ;)
I'm creating an asp.net application (vb code, SQL server, IIS) that will work on a browser in an intranet environment. The application will use windows authentication (so that the users are able to access the app by logging onto their windows account).
My problem is, the application will have an admin user account feature that enables the application admin to change the users various access levels to different parts of the application as well as user info (such as name, phone, address, etc.). Is this possible to implement?
My problem is, I need to store the windows login usernames/passwords on the SQL database of the application as well, because that's where all the other user info will be stored in.
Is there a way to get the user info (user name and password (crypted)) visible in VB? Meaning, if I was to make a test app with a simple button and a label. Can I somehow print my own windows username to the label with a simple lbl1.text = ...whatever?
Security isn't an issue at this point.
