Forms-Based Authentication

Forms-based authentication is used to implement customized logic for authenticating users without having to worry about session management using cookie. It gives developer more access to specify which files on the site can be accessed and by whom, and allows identification of a login page [3,7].
This mechanism will automatically redirect the unauthenticated user to login page and ask them to provide proper credentials (e.g. username/password combination). If login is successful, ASP.NET then issues the cookie to the user and redirects them to specific resources that they originally requested. This cookie allows the user to revisit particular protected resources without having to repeatedly log in.
