I have a custom mini login user control that I have embedded in the top of my website which shows on every page. These pages are non-secure HTTP://. I would like to avoid having to redirect the user to a HTTPS page to perform the login but I definitely don't want to send login credentials to the server in plain text.
I am trying find a method to send the user's login credentials encrypted via https from a non-secure (http) page.
I tried to set the postbackurl for the login button to itself but in https, but the user's input is not retained and the buttonLogin_click is not fired when I set the button postbackurl property. My ASP.net web application is VB.Net framework 4.0
I am assuming this can be done because I see lots of websites where login fields are on available on every page and they are running http and I can believe they are not encrypting the login credentials.
Any guidance is much appreciated.
