Hello, I would like implement Message Lever security with username/password authentication on HTTP. My environment looks something like this.  Server Side - Message lever security is configured on service.           <security mode="Message">             <message clientCredentialType="UserName" negotiateServiceCredential="True"/>           </security> - CA and self signed certificates are created on server and configured. ServiceCredentials are looks like this <serviceCredentials> <serviceCertificate findValue="CertForIdm" storeLocation="LocalMachine" storeName="My" x509FindType="FindByIssuerName" /> <userNameAuthentication userNamePasswordValidationMode="MembershipProvider" membershipProviderName="IfMembershipProvider" /> </serviceCredentials> Client Side (References are generated by VS) - Binding configuration                 <binding name="WSHttpBinding_IWaypoint2" closeTimeout="00:11:00"                     openTimeout="00:11:00" receiveTimeout="00:10:00" sendTimeout="00:11:00"  &nb

Dreaded server principal......security context error.


So yes I am getting the server context error. The full error is The server principal 'Thor' is not able to access the database 'ErrDbase' under the current security context.

I thought I understood impersonation so if you could kindly tell me where I am *NOT* getting it I would appreciate.  Scenario:

SQL 2005 Ent on W2K3

I have a sql login WebUser that has access to execute sp's on WebDbase. These Sp's call views on other dbases that WebUser does NOT have access to.

I have another SQL user say Thor. Thor has access to all dbases involved. The sp's in WebDbase have been created as "Create proc ... WITH EXECUTE AS THOR AS... 

Now in the WebDbase sp's I have try ...catch. The try block contains selects, unions etc. At this point if the WebDbase SP calls another SP it is in the WebDbase.

The catch however is different. The catch, after gathering all the various error info calls an sp in ErrDbase to log the error. WebUser does not have access to the ErrDbase but THOR does...and we're executing under Thor right...The error message seems to indicate we are. Well when we try to exec an sp with error handling SQL must do some sort of parsing because it throws the context error without executing a single line.

Is this ownership chaining? I think it is so I have the DBA turn it on and restart the SQL ser

Routing users after authentication to different sites/applications preserving the security context?



We want to authenticate our users on our main site (default port 80, default.aspx, login page) and once a user successfully authenticated, we go grab a list of possible urls for that user and present it as links. Once the users clicks a link, we want to preserve the authentication context so that the app living on the chosen url does not have to re-authenticate the user.

Is something like that possible?

Is it recommended to do something like that?

Are there other ways to route users to their destination?


Thanks in advance, regards,


SharePoint Tutorial - Security

Security in SharePoint is comprised of users, groups and roles.

Users, Groups and Roles

A user account comes from the authentication system. For example, if Active Directory is used to authenticate then the user accounts will come from it.

There are two types of groups SharePoint uses: domain groups and SharePoint groups.

Good Day all,

Having an issue with an outside user accessing my IIS7 box. I do not have this problem when running the website from my host machine. I found this post: Http://forums.asp.net/t/1371394.aspx. I assure you that this is not a solution because I am not storing any of my files on a network share. 

What do you think my approach should be. 

I already have read rights to IIS user to my BIN folder. 

Thanks for the help. 

XBAP Security


We have a small XBAP file upload app that we are having trouble deploying. We were getting security errors when we were pushing this application that we don't get when running in our development environments on our machines. We gave the XBAP app full permissions and still got errors. Then we created a personal certificate and were able to get this to work. But that means we have to load a client side certificate for each and every machine that wants to run this which is ridiculous. Does anyone have a solution for this?

Intranet Users Challenged When Using Windows Integrated Security


We've setup an intranet site using Windows Integrated Security. Its up and running and users can access it. However, they are being challenged with a login dialog for the server when they initially access the site.

Isn't is possible to configure the server so that the users aren't challenged AND are recognized as being already authenticated by Windows? We're trying to go with a seamless experience, whereby all they have to do is login to their machine like normal and then go from there.

Security Question Answer Retrieval


I know there is a method built in for retrieving the encrypted password, but how do I retrieve the encrypted security answer?

What I want to do is have a member profile update screen that the end user can update their password and security question and answer. However, when they get to this page, I want to already be showing the security question (the easy part) and its answer (the not so easy part).

I have updated web.config with passwordFormat=Encrypted and have added a machineKey with the generator (forgot the link, but located on eggheadcafe somewhere).

I haven't done ANYTHING yet, since I already have a user store with hashed information. I wanted to get some functionality done before publishing, wiping the store and recreating users (only a couple developers).
