Force password expiration after x days

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Using C# and sqlmembershipprovider forms authentication, is there a way to force user password to expire and need to be reset after x number of days?

So if a user launches the website login.aspx page, when they type their userid, it will check if the password is expired and direct them to a Resetpassword.aspx page?

Dealing with Sql Server password expiration


I work with Sql Server 2005 Express eddition and VB.NET 2008 .

the application I build work with the database , and a few days ago the password suddenly expired while being used by users.

I want to prevent such a case,  where at least I will be able to set a new password programatically .

any suggestions ?

Cannot force users to change password... argh.


I'm working on a web page to allow users to activate AD accounts on demand. I have everything working except for one thing: I cannot set the 'user must change password on next logon' flag. I've tried using the user.invoke("put", "pwdlastset" , "0") statement, but it doesn't appear to be having any effect...

does anyone have any idea how to do this?

How to Encrypt and Decrypt a Password using SQLSERVER 2005?(Video)

Encypt and Decrypt a Password using SQLSERVER 2005(Video)

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.

Password change control won`t accept new password


Hi guys

I am developing a shopping cart with asp.net and sqlexpress. I am using aspnet authentication components to create a backend page. I designed the site to let in only authorized users in. 

Yesterday, I forget my password to login to backend and asked system recover my password. with recover password of the asp.net I was able to receive the temp password. I took that and logged in, of course asp.net forward me to password change component which I am having problem with. 

Every time I change my password , password change shows that I was successfull but after clicking on the continiue button password change component comes back. I went to properties of password change component and entered the main default page as destination but it is not helping. 

I close the IE clear the cache , even restart the machine. When I login always taking me to the password change page.

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);

Blog site Restrictions -- How to set an expiration date on blog posts

I just created a new Blog site in Sharepoint 2007, and set permisions to the users and admins.
Now, I have a question on how to set the post life time. Is there any setting to contral how many days that the posts can last in the blog? We want the post include the comments kept in the site for one month.

Please help.


Sharepoint access dissabled automatically in every two days

The problem seems to be that our administrators grant access to specific portals / folders and then without warning or any actions from our part the next week access is disabled

Display 'Top Queries Over Previous 30 Days' to users


In the Site Usage Reports, there is a section for 'Top Queries Over Previous 30 Days'. I would like to display this information to users. 

Is there a existing webpart for this? 
Is the data stored in a list that can be used for this purpose?
