Mixing MVC With Webforms (C# ASP.net)

Can I mix MVC with webforms? What I would like to do is develop a new site in MVC, but I need to use some of the old page from the webform site, at least until I complete the development to the MVC version of the controls and views. My problem is I'm using identity as the authentication, and authorization, but I want to restrict unauthorized users from accessing one of the folders and webforms. of course based on their role. Does the authentication still work the same way as with webforms, using the webconfig file seting it to  allow or deny access  for the specific roles the directory?

Maybe this will help.

Combining ASP.NET Webforms and ASP.NET MVC in one application is possible—in fact, it is quite easy. The reason for this is that the ASP.NET MVC framework has been built on top of ASP.NET. There's actually only one crucial difference: ASP.NET lives in System.Web, whereas ASP.NET MVC lives in System.Web, System.Web.Routing, System.Web.Abstractions, and System.Web.Mvc. This means that adding these assemblies as a reference in an existing ASP.NET application should give you a good start on combining the two technologies.

This may help with authorization.

lock down in web.config similar to:

  <location path="YourPage.aspx">    
      <system.web>    
           <authorization>    
               <allow roles="sitemapnode" /> 
           </authorization>    
      </system.web>    
 </location>
