In particular, we created a page that listed the contents of the current directory.
Technically, I didn't need to specify values for these attributes since I just assigned them to their default values, but I put them here to make it explicitly clear that I am not using persistent cookies and that the cookie is both encrypted and validated. Henceforth, the Roles framework will cache the users' roles in cookies.
If the user's browser does not support cookies, or if their cookies are deleted or lost, somehow, it's no big deal – the Note Microsoft's Patterns & Practices group discourages using persistent role cache cookies.
So this cap is meant to reduce the likelihood of exceeding this size limitation.
If you have extremely long role names, you may want to consider specifying a smaller , respectively.
This tutorial starts with a look at how the Roles framework associates a user's roles with his security context. NET pipeline it is associated with a security context, which includes information identifying the requestor.
It then examines how to apply role-based URL authorization rules. When using forms authentication, an authentication ticket is used as an identity token.
As soon as a match is found, the user is granted or denied access, depending on if the match was found in an URL authorization makes it easy to specify coarse authorization rules that state what identities are permitted and which ones are denied from viewing a particular page (or all pages in a folder and its subfolders).
However, in certain cases we may want to allow all users to visit a page, but limit the page's functionality based on the visiting user's roles.
In this case, the cookie will not be sent when making requests to subdomains, such as admin.
If you want the cookie to be passed to all subdomains you need to customize the exists is because many user agents do not permit cookies larger than 4,096 bytes.
If the Roles framework is configured to cache the user's roles in a cookie, the class to determine the user's roles. Figure 2: The User's Role Information Can Be Stored in a Cookie to Improve Performance (Click to view full-size image) By default, the role cache cookie mechanism is disabled.
