I have a webpage that is a form which displays the results upon submission of form.
I use html forms along with asp script to connect to a webservice to query from.
The form also has got a password field which i submit along with form data and validate in the asp code itself. This technique is able to hide the password from my users in the webpage-->view source area since the server side code is never visible.
I wanted a simple and low maintenance security solution and all my users should be able to share the same password therefore i used this technique.
Now my question is: how secure is this technique? is asp server side code a good place to hide important information?
