Access Control List in .NET Framework

Once you complete developing a web application, you need to secure it. This is whenrepparttar aspect of security comes into picture. There will be some portions of your application which need to be secured from users. Securing an application may need extra hardware to build complex multi-layer systems with firewalls, and also some highly secure features. Security enables you to provide access to a specified user afterrepparttar 133468 user is authenticated and authorized to accessrepparttar 133469 resources in your web application. The Access Control List is used inrepparttar 133470 authorization process.

The basic concepts of security are Authentication, Authorization, Impersonation and Data or functional security. Authentication isrepparttar 133471 process that enables to identify a user, so that only that user is provided access torepparttar 133472 resources. Authorization isrepparttar 133473 process that enables to determine whether a particular user can be given access torepparttar 133474 resources thatrepparttar 133475 user requests. Impersonation isrepparttar 133476 process that provides access to resources requested by a user under a different identity. Data or functional security isrepparttar 133477 process of securing a system physically, updatingrepparttar 133478 operating system and using robust software.

Some elements of an operating system,repparttar 133479 Internet Information Server (IIS), andrepparttar 133480 .NET Framework work in coordination to providerepparttar 133481 features required to executerepparttar 133482 security concepts mentioned above. For example, Windows 2000 uses its own list of user accounts for identifying and authenticating users. IIS identifiesrepparttar 133483 users based onrepparttar 133484 information provided by Windows, whenrepparttar 133485 users access a web site. IIS after identification ofrepparttar 133486 users, passes this information to ASP.NET. Thenrepparttar 133487 user information is checked for authorization.
