Identity management is the unglamorous (yet extremely important) task of managing account information for users (including passwords). Identity management in ASP.NET has had an interesting and somewhat tumultuous history, but in this session we will focus on Microsoft's newest framework called ASP.NET Identity. We will discuss the important characteristics of proper identity management and then we'll survey the pros and cons of ASP.NET Identity. We will see how ASP.NET Identity provides support for password management, claims-based identity, external login providers, custom validation as well as customized storage.

You will learn:

  • What are the important features for identity management
  • What features ASP.NET Identity provides for identity management
  • How to customize ASP.NET Identity
