Authentication (login - username/password)

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


I have a website developed in ASP.NET created by someone else, sitting on another server... until now... a simple(ish) setup with login to update content.

The site was zipped up and I was told it would be a simple case of uploading all the files onto the new server.  I've managed to upload the site and it works fine... but I can't access the editing pages as it will no longer accept the username and password when I go to login.

The host server is running ASP.NET v4 and IIS v7.  Hosting is with godaddy.com so I'm also getting used to their way of doing things.

Hope someone can help.

Keyset does not exist WCF +SSL + Username & Password authentication


My hosting is DiscountASP.NET

 I get Error "Keyset does not exist".

Please, see error on page: http://www.healthbucket.com/HealthbucketWCF/wcfUser.svc

Section in my web.config of wcf looks:
<serviceCertificate findValue="www.healthbucket.com" storeLocation="LocalMachine"
storeName="My" x509FindType="FindBySubjectName" />
<userNameAuthentication userNamePasswordValidationMode="Custom"
customUserNamePasswordValidatorType="UsernameValidator, App_code" />

I think there are two errors:
1. CryptographicException: Keyset does not exist
2. The certificate 'CN=www.healthbucket.com, OU=Domain Control Validated - RapidSSL(R), OU=See www.rapidssl.com/resources/cps (c)08, OU=GT10747045, O=www.healthbucket.com, C=IL' must have a private key that is capable of key exchange. The process must have access rights for the private key.]

Forms based users being prompted for windows authentication login for My Sites photos in user lists

Here's an issue I didn't see coming for our forms based authentication users. 

We have a web application extended to an external url to handle forms based authentication for users outside of our domain. Our setup looks like this...

Internal Users/Windows Authentication - moss.domain.com
External Users/Forms Based - mossext.domain.com
My Site for Internal Users - mysites.domain.com

When our forms based users are accessing user lists, or discussion pages that display user pictures, they are getting a windows authentication login for our internal users (mysites.domain.com) who have populated their my site with personal photo.

How do we fix this?
