Dear EE Members,

         We developed ASP.net Application in C#, in which we are validating the User group through LDAP:<DominName> by checking if the group is available in out list then proceed to site.

For some users, when we are validating authentication cookies we are getting the error Invalid value for 'encryptedTicket' parameter

Below is the line for the reference where we are getting this error.

 authTicket = FormsAuthentication.Decrypt(authCookie.Value);

We tried  with different PCs and clear cookies still no luck.

Thanks

hi,

possible causes:

a null value is passed to decrypt, or
the cookie is getting corrupted

check the cookie value for null, or rename your cookie

hope this helps

Check the Value assigned code for the Cookie. Whether it is set correctly?

Check what value is in authCookie.Value by debugging the application.

Check whether cookies are enabled in Browser settings and Cookie values are stored correctly.

The cookie being passed was way too big and the URL was going bigger than 4096 chars, so we reduced the string, and its fine now
