Summary: In this video we are continuing our discussion of ASP.NET advanced features. Specifically, we will be talking about access controls. As you are developing web applications, you know that not every user can access any page on the site. Some pages have critical information that only specific users can get to (for example only HR employees can get to the pages the contain employees salaries). To deal with page access, there are two important concepts: (1) Authentication (can I login to this page?), (2) Authorization (now that I am there, what pages can I access). To discuss these concepts, we will create a page that contains employee pay rates (from the AdventureWorks database). We will add a grid that contains the employee information. Then we will add configuration information so only logged in users can get to the page.
Methodology of the development of example: Good coding standard and simplified design to illustrate the key points.
