ASP.NET Creating Secure Directories
Posted on 2005-05-02
I am looking to create and ASP.NET application that creates a directory if it doesn't already exist, creates a file within that directory that only a specific user can access. I have login and password measures on the site with a unique user idetifiers. However, I don't want anyone to access antoher users folder. This must all be dynamic and fast.
Here is the scenario in a nutshell:
A. User logs in.
B. User creates (on the fly) a PDF report.
C. Browser Redirects to report.
D. Report opens in browser (Acrobat Plug-in.)
E. Report remains available ONLY to this user. (No one can anonymously visit report URL) OR Report is completely deleted to be regenerated when needed again.
Any suggestions or help out there?
I have everything done here except securely accessing the report (Step E).
