NET 2.0 was released in 2005 and to be honest this is sort of old news.
The idea is that a developer could plugin a custom provider to access arbitrary databases for the users’ usernames and passwords. NET team decided to incorporate the provider model for authentication (membership), roles, user profile, session and other aspects of the runtime into the ASP. To capitalize on the provider model several new controls were added such as the Create User Wizard, Login, Reset Password and Change Password controls.
The hosting application would simply code against this provider abstraction and the custom implementation would be used to contact the database, thus decoupling the two. These controls, given the provider model, could implement these features without knowing the details of the database being used.

NET's Membership system and its associated Web controls enable developers to create websites that support user accounts in a fraction of the time that it once did.In a nutshell, the Membership system and the specified provider handle the low-level details of creating a user account, validating a user's credentials, deleting an account, locking out an account, getting information about the currently logged on user, and so on.The Create User Wizard control generates a user interface that enables a visitor to create a new account on the site.Specifically, the Countersignature renders a series of textboxes.Explore the Telerik Public Issue Tracking system and vote to affect the priority of the items.
