Security Info - Session Var OR Cookie??
Been VB'ing for years, relatively new to the world of ASP.
An either or question. I'm developing a "secured" site, requiring a user to
log-in to get access to many of the site's pages. Naturally, all I do is at
the top of each "secured" ASP page I check for log in info.
Here's my question : where do I store the user's logged in status - in a
cookie I check each time (seems like a lot of network traffic / slow?) or in
a Session variable (memory considerations?)?
Thanks for any comments, experience or explanations,
