Is the inbuilt MVC login system commonly used?

Posted 20 November 2011 - 11:36 AM

Hello,

I've a question in regards to the inbuilt login/authentication system that ASP.NET offers.
Is it used often in a live production environment or do people build their own login systems?

I'm new to this and i'm trying to get a picture of it. I guess were I'm trying to get at is, should i bother learning to create my own login system?

I'm assuming you're talking about the Membership API that ships with ASP.NET? It is not limited to MVC, you can use it with WebForms if you so choose.

It is a great start to membership, and the API handles the not-so-fun membership pieces. At the very least, I recommend starting with the out-of-box solution and building on top of that so you don't have to worry about the nuances of membership, and just dive into the application-specific customization for authentication/authorization.
