Hi,

My requirement is after the user enters the Userid and Password from the Login ASP Page (say Login.asp)he
must be validated and if the validation is success he must be taken to the Cold Fusion Home Page ( say
Home.cfm) with the Userid and Password values passed to it ( these values should not be passed via URL
due to security reasons).
Pls. do suggest how to achieve this, if u have any code pls. do send us.

I was able to achieve this by passing the values thru. URL, but I want to achieve this without passing
thru. URL.

Thanks in Advance,
Rajesh

pass it through form hidden variables.

<form name="test" action="home.cfm" method="post">

<input type="hidden" name="userid" value=asp_userid>

<input type="hidden" name="password" value=asp_password>

</form>

besides the above approach mentioned there are two other ways.

You can post to a CFM page from the ASP page (the form vars) and CFM can create a session var to state that the person is logged in.

Or use a cookie that is accessible to both pages that is a hash or an encrypted version of userid and password that the each script can decipher and use.

The thing is I've to validate the Username and Password in the ASP Login Page itself by checking in the Database and after successfully check I've do another select and based on that I've to direct to Home page CFM's ( say Home1.cfm or Home2.cfm).
