Using BrowserID Authentication in ASP.NET Web Sites
Using a single user ID and password across multiple web sites is not a new idea. Software companies have played with this idea with varying success. Unfortunately developers often find it complicated to implement support for these systems in their ASP.NET web sites. That is where Browser ID initiative from Mozilla Labs shines. Browser ID offers a simple way of authenticating users of your web site using their single sign-on credentials. Under Browser ID scheme, users can use any verified email address as their user ID. The actual login credentials are not stored in your database but in the Browser ID system. Thus users are free to use a single user ID and password across all the web sites that support Browser ID. In this article you will learn to use ASP.NET Forms Authentication and Browser ID hand in hand.
