symmetric key protected by a password

An alternative could be using a symmetric key protected by a password, as long as your application generates the CREATE SYMMETRIC KEY and OPEN SYMMETRIC KEY statements directly instead of calling them inside a SP (otherwise the password will still be passed as a parameter, and will be in clear in the profiler).

Use Membership but bypass / disable password usage for users


I have an application that does LDAP authentication. The authentication is done on the code behind page of my Login.aspx page. Once the user passes LDAP authentication, a cookie is set and I redirect:

FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage(UserName.Text, False)

I would like to setup membership in my application and keep track of some user information. But due to company security requirements, I cannot store user passwords on my application. That must stay on the LDAP server only.

Is there a way to store users but disable password storage on the aspnet_membership table?

Security Briefs: Password Minder Internals


In my last column I introduced Password Minder, the tool I use to manage all of my passwords. It generates a long, random password for each site I visit, and makes it possible for me to use the most complex passwords possible, without ever having to see the actual password material or type it in manually.

So, I need your help with this. Please let me know your inputs.


Problem with decrypt password


hello everyone:



I encryped password to the binary variable in sql server with this code:

 DataClasses1DataContext db = new DataClasses1DataContext();
            var info = new passdefine();
            info.username = TextBox1.Text;
            string strcry = TextBox2.Text;
            byte[] bt = new byte[strcry.Length];
            bt = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(strcry);
            RSACryptoServiceProvider RSA1 =new RSACryptoServiceProvider();

            bt = RSA1.Encrypt(bt,false);

            info.password = bt;


And it worked properly but when Want to decrypt it , I get this error:BAD DATA.  

And I use this code:

DataClasses1DataContext db=new DataClasses1DataContext();
            var info = from m in db.passdefines where m.username == TextBox1.Text select m;
            foreach (var item in info)

                byte[] bt = new byte[item.password.length];
                RSACryptoServiceProvider RSA1 = new RSACryptoServiceProvider();
                bt = RSA1.Decrypt(item.password.ToArray(), false);
                string pass = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetString(bt);

EventReceiver does not fire for other users than Administrator


Hi all

My code adds a EventReceiver to some SPLists. When I log into Sharepoint as Administrator, then the EventReciever is fired.

When i log in as an other user, it does nothing.


My current code is this:

string assm = "Minimizer, Version=" + FileVersionInfo.GetVersionInfo(Root.Res.DLL).FileVersion + ", Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=d2d19387a15c363f";
          string cls = "MinimizerPlugin.Minimizer";
          l.EventReceivers.Add(SPEventReceiverType.ItemUpdated, assm, cls);
          l.EventReceivers.Add(SPEventReceiverType.ItemAdded, assm, cls);

What can I do to register this EventReceiver to all users?

Thanks for your help!!

Working with CodePlex. How to save password for project?


I want to make public one small project on CodePlex. Everybody knows that you can work with CodePlex like with TFS client and with SVN client as well. But really I can't work with it from SVN client. When I tried to add some binary file (it was dll) I got the error "Server sent unexpected return value (200 OK) in response to PUT request for .". How to solve this problem I don't know, I found thread at CodePlex's discussions Can't commit binary files using TortoiseSVN, but last message was at past year. Ok, I'm working with TFS at work, so for me it will be not a problem connect to CodePlex with TFS. But there are some distressing case, Visual Studio always ask credentials at every new connection to project. And I didn't find a checkbox "Save credentials". But I found the method. Read more...

Accessing Username, password, roles in xml file


Currently I am storing my username and password (passwordFormat="SHA1") credientails in my web.config.  I would like to figure out how to access them in an xml file that I have stored in my App_Data directory rather than the web.config file because I do not want my application restarting everytime I manually add a user (small list of 5 authorized users for the CMS section).

Here is what my web.config section looks like:

      <forms name=".Administration"
