SSL or Not SSL


I currenty am in the middle of developing a web application that is run under https.  

What I want to do is as follows:

1) Login page to run under HTTPS.
2) Once logged in redirect to main site running under HTTP.

The problem I feel am going to encounter is that due to the fact Im using 2 sites is how to get the 
authentication details between the 2 sites

Is there a recognised technique for doing this and if this is the case can anyone point me in the 
direction of a tutorial to do this?

Best wishes

Unless you designate a site can't be accessed without using SSL you can access it either way. I always do a check on the pages I want to be SSL and if they were accessed without SSL, then I do a response.redirect. Since the application is the same, the authentication carries forward.

Hi Chris,

Currently i have the virtual directory in IIS such that the site can only be accessed over HTTPS and any HTTP requests are rejected with the (The page must be viewed over a secure channel 403.4 error).

Is is possible to set up the virtual directory so that the login page can be accessed over HTTPS and the rest of the site as HTTP?

If so how can this be done?

Base on my understanding, you want only the login page to be secured by SSL, You may get help from this thread:

Hope it helps.

SSL to no SSL
Hi I have install GW6.0.4 webaccess with SSL and my question is.

SSL or the lack thereof has nothing to do with webaccess itself, and everything to do with the web server you're running it on.

Did enyone have to create a script to process credit cards using the AIM method through the AuthorizeNet gateway? I'm a little bit lost. There are few things I must do and never done before: [e.g. open a SSL connection between my hosting server and their gateway and then post the data (credit card number, name, etc..) using a script.] I used HTML forms to post data but never a script. Also, what about the safety concern of the following scenario: 1. My site displays a form to gather credit card info 2. Then posts to my script 3. My script sends that data and the transaction ...

Sharing SSL and login secuirty between a .NET 1.1 and 2.0 sites? SSL passthrough ??
RE: Sharing SSL and login secuirty between a .NET 1.1 and 2.0 sites? SSL passthrough ?? We have an older site under  .NET 1.1 running with an SSL certificate. Lets just say it;s not under my control and I can't touch it.

AnonymousIdentification + SSL/Non-SSL
Hi! I stumbled upon a problem that I just can't seem to solve on my own. Lets say we have a site that allows anonymousIdentification (used only for profiles). We then have a couple of SSL-pages, and a few non-encrypted pages. My problem is that the user is considered being two different users depending on if he's browsing an SSL page or not. Ie. every user now gets two rows in the profiles-table. One for SSL-pages, and one for non-SSL-pages... I can prehaps understand why this might be a good thing. But right now, for me, It's not... I would like for my user to be identified as the same...

as some of you may have read, i am having some iprint problems that i think may be SSL related(too many ssl services on one server). so, i am wondering how well does iprint work in a NON-SSL envoronment. i will only use it internally(intranet). anyone else running iprint non-ssl? just as good except for encryption? Hi, Starting with SP3 secure iprint uses TLS, which basicly means it starts with non-secure on port 631 and switches to secure on the same port (it does not use port 443).
