Up until now I've been using the Session object to store the currently logged on user and using a strongly typed wrapper class to access it. I've been reading up on using the Session object in MVC, and it seems frowned upon (especially for user authentication), so I want to look at using forms authentication instead, but I'm not quite sure how to use it.
One issue I have is that I validate a user's permission level using an enum, whereas all the examples on forms authentication I've found use a "roles" object which is just a string. Can I still implement it using enums?
Thanks for any help
