I have an internal website and want to quickly configure Forms Authentication Across Applications.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/eb0zx8fc.aspx

What's alternatively needed in this section?
<machineKey
      validationKey="C50B3C89CB21F4F1422FF158A5B42D0E8DB8CB5CDA1742572A487D9401E3400267682B202B746511891C1BAF47F8D25C07F6C39A104696DB51F17C529AD3CABE"
      decryptionKey="8A9BE8FD67AF6979E7D20198CFEA50DD3D3799C77AF2B72F"
      validation="SHA1" />
  </system.web>

Also, I am unsure about what to use here (taken from sample code on link above):
        name=".ASPXFORMSAUTH"
        protection="All"  
        path="/"

Thanks,

Using encryption isn't a bad idea and looks like it might be easier than using none, due to the extensive example. But how does the key get created in the web.config in the first place? That question is the reason I wanted to not use it in the first place, since I didn't know how it could get into the web.config.

Is there some utility program? Does my asp.net application write it?

Confused...

Well, there are several ways to do it, here are 2 examples, the first use IIS and it will change your web.config file for you

And the second using an free onlin utility, but here you have to copy & paste the result to your web.config file manually
