I have intranet website hosted on IIS. It has some ASP .NET pages... For that website, I have set "Basic Authentication" in IIS to authenticate the users...
So when i open that website, it prompts for userid/password and if user puts in windows login-password, it lets user to view the webpage...
My question is, is it possible to change the look and feel of that popup/dialogbox of userid/password prompt?
I am using Internet Explorer...
thanks so much

Normally no. But where there is a will there is a way. What you need to do is to design your own custom login form and then use code to authenticate the user against the AD or your server.

You can read the following two articles in the same order as they are given and let me know if you still has a doubt.

Do you recommend to use it?
CompTIA Security+

Learn the essential functions of CompTIA Security+, which establishes the core knowledge required of any cybersecurity role and leads professionals into intermediate-level cybersecurity jobs.

Unless your requirement is non negotiable, I would suggest you leave the current site as it is. I, as a project manager, always have to take a call on such issues. I would categorized your customization as good to have but not a required functionality. You need to take a call if it justifies the effort and cost to do the customization. I, personally, will not be able to justify the efforts for just changing the look and feel.

That is why my earlier comment began with "Normally no...".
