ASP Net - How does Login Control Authenticate users behind the scenes?
Posted on 2007-11-15
Here's my problem. I've been asked to develop a cut down mobile version of our companies site. The existing company site uses in built asp.net 2.0 Membership provider. The login for the existing site is completely out of the box. ie. The authenticating of the user credentials is handled behind the scenes by the Login control.
The problem is that I have to mirror this functionality in the mobile login form and there is no login control for mobile forms. So I guess I need to understand how the Login control on the existing site handles the encryption of user credentials so I can write my own logic for the mobile login.
Hope that makes sense. Can anyone point me in the write direction?
