form security against security
i have a form in my website which is to be filled by user and that form stores in database(sql server 2005).
but someone told me that anyone can run script in textboxes in that form and can damage database,
so how to avoid such security lack.
it is common practice to use parameterized sql statements or stored procs to insure you are protected from sql injections attacks.
if you concatenate user input directly into a sql statement, then you are at risk.Mike Banavige~~~~~~~~~~~~Need a site code sample in a different language? Try converting it with: http://converte...File security from web-apps with Forms security enabled?
I am developing a series of web-apps, in the process of converting older client-server FoxPro apps. We are forced to use Forms-level security on our web-apps, due to licensing issues with providing Active Directory Windows-base security, and have adopted the ASP.NET 2.0 security schema. However, I have ran into a problem because many of our applications use sensitive Word and Excel attachments to the plans we store in the SQL Server 2000 and 2005 databases. Forms security adequately protects the web-site pages and the database data but when it comes to protecting access to ...How secure is secure?

...when is secure, secure?
I wrote a custom authentication handler for PureFTPD, using a combination of
authentication methods, for about 4 different types of users.
So far, from testing it, it does look to work properly, and does it's job
pretty well (and fast). I use #!/usr/bin/perl -W as well as use Strict, and
use warnings, and the code returns no errors or warnings when run.
I am right to presume that this basically only really tells me the my syntax
and structure of the application is right? What's a good way to see whether
it is actually SECURE... There is a couple of lines of...File Security Using Forms based Authentication

I currently running a ASP.NET application (Visual studio 2003) with SQL Server 2000.
For security I am using forms authentication and integrity security for sql server enabling the ASP.NET account.
I am developing a module that create, delete and upload files on a network directory. If I set impersonation in the web config to true and specify a username/password will that conflict with my current security? Would it be better to make impersonation specific to this page? Any ideas on the approach?

I have a question I hope some of you can answer. Where I work, I share
workstations with the rest of my dept. We do not have individual logins
we all use the same one. Because of this, anyone can access anyone
else's files on the shared network drive. I am looking for a way to
secure my work so that it cannot be accessed. Management has me working
on things they don't want others to know about but I can't get a logon.
I do use a usb key for a personal backup but i want to keep the use of
the server backup capability.
As I understand it, the Forms Authentication cookie is encrypted, signed, hashed, etc. If my website relied on the username of the cookie to get the active user, how secure would my website be? I wanted to know if anyone has read or seen anything about this system being broken.
Friend, First, the auth cookie is encrypted. Others will not have direct access to the int value. Second, if you are transmitting it only over 128 bit SSL then that will be almost impossible to get at. However, I assume that you, like most people, are only using the SSL on the pages that MUST be secure l...Secure Form Authentication??
Could someone please give examples to how a secure form authentication can be performed without the need of SSL?

With the application I'm building right now, every user has a numerical UserID, and just about all the data in my SQL Server database is linked to that number, so it's very important I keep that number confidential. For the authentication scheme, I have a basic login/pass page where I authenticate a user by using Forms Authentication with cookies, and assigning their UserID to the User.Identity.Name property. Then, on any protected pages, I basically make references to the UserID by saying Int32.Parse(User.Identity.Name). When I combine this with SSL, is this a secure enough scheme to make s...(IN)SECURE Magazine from Net-Security (PDF download)
