Examples

The following example shows the roleManager element in the system.web section of the Web.config file for an ASP.NET application. It specifies that the application uses a SqlRoleProvider instance and sets cookieProtection attribute to Encrypted.

<roleManager defaultProvider="SqlProvider"   
  enabled="true"  
  cacheRolesInCookie="true"  
  cookieName=".ASPROLES"  
  cookieTimeout="30"  
  cookiePath="/MyApplication"  
  cookieRequireSSL="false"  
  cookieSlidingExpiration="true"  
  cookieProtection="Encrypted" >  
  <providers>  
    <add  
      name="SqlProvider"  
      type="System.Web.Security.SqlRoleProvider"  
      connectionStringName="SqlServices"  
      applicationName="MyApplication" />  
  </providers>  
</roleManager>  

Remarks

You can specify the protection of the cookie where roles are cached for your application by setting the cookieProtection attribute in the Web.config file for your ASP.NET application. The cookieProtection attribute takes a CookieProtection enumeration value that indicates whether the role names are encrypted, validated, both, or neither.
