Windows authentication enables you to identify users without creating a custom page. Credentials are stored in the Web server s local user database or an Active Directory domain. Once identified you can use the user s credentials to gain access to resources that are protected by Windows authorization.

Forms authentication enables you to identify users with a custom database such as an ASP.NET membership database. Alternatively you can implement your own custom database. Once authenticated you can reference the roles the user is in to restrict access to portions of your Web site.

ASP.NET has ways to Authenticate a user:
1) Forms Authentication
2) Windows Authentication

Windows Authentication provider is the default authentication provider for ASP.NET applications. When a user using this authentication logs in to an application, the credentials are matched with the Windows domain through IIS.


There are 4 types of Windows Authentication methods:
1) Anonymous Authentication - IIS allows any user
2) Basic Authentication - A windows username and password has to be sent across the network (in plain text format, hence not very secure).
3) Digest Authentication - Same as Basic Authentication, but the credentials are encrypted. Works only on IE 5 or above
4) Integrated Windows Authentication - Relies on Kerberos technology, with strong credential encryption



Forms Authentication - This authentication relies on code written by a developer, where credentials are matched against a database. Credentials are entered on web forms, and are matched with the database table that contains the user information.
