This repository contains a collection of various authentication mechanisms for ASP.NET Core, including
Basic Authentication started as a demonstration of how to write authentication middleware and was not as something you would seriously consider using, but some people want Basic Authentication and Certificate Authentication is a common request on the ASP.NET Core Security repo, so I am releasing my own versions of them.
All work is now targeted at ASP.NET Core 2.0.
This is not an official Microsoft project, this is an "In my spare time, entirely unsupported"™ effort.
nuget packages are available for the ASP.NET Core 2.0 versions of the authentication handlers.
|Authentication Type||Package Name||nuget link||Current Version|
Changed library dependencies to remove demands for exact versions, following the .NET Core open-source library guidance
nuget package is now signed
|2.1.0||Added Certificate Authentication
Fixed Basic Authentication event handling
Packages are now Authenticode signed
What about older versions of ASP.NET Core?
Older versions of Basic Authentication are available in the appropriate branch. No nuget packages are available for ASP.NET Core 1.x.
Certificate Authentication is only available for ASP.NET Core 2.0. It will not be back ported to 1.x.
|ASP.NET Core MVC Version||Branch|
Each handler requires you to authenticate the credentials passed. You are responsible for hardening this authentication and ensuring it performs under load.
