Types of Authentication in ASP.Net

+3 votes

ASP.NET actually supports four types of authentication: 

1. Windows authentication 
2. Forms authentication 
3. Passport authentication 
4. Anonymous access 

1. Windows authentication 
If your application is targeted for use inside an organization, and users accessing the application have existing user accounts within the local user database of the Web server or Active Directory, you should authenticate users with Windows authentication. 

2. Forms authentication 
By default, Form authentication is used. 
Form-based authentication presents the user with an HTML-based Web page that prompts the user for credentials. 

3. Passport authentication 
You can also authenticate users using a service from Microsoft called Passport. Passport 
is a centralized directory of user information that Web sites can use, in exchange for a fee, to authenticate users. Users can choose to allow the Web site access to personal 
information stored on Passport, such as the users' addresses, ages, and interests. 

4. Anonymous access 
You can explicitly disable authentication for your application if you know that it will be used only by anonymous users.
