Membership In ASP.NETApr 07, 2015
ASP.NET membership gives you a built-in way to validate and store user credentials. ASP.NET membership therefore helps you manage user authentication in your Web sites. You can use ASP.NET membership with ASP.NET forms authentication by using with the ASP.NET log in controls to create a complete system for authenticating users. Although membership is a self-standing feature in ASP.NET for authentication, it can be integrated with ASP.NET role management to provide authorization services for your site. Membership can also be integrated with user profile properties to provide application-specific customization that can be tailored to individual users. An important aspect of the membership system is that you never need to explicitly perform any low-level database functions to get or set user information.
