"ASP.NET Membership builds on the success of the Forms authentication model from ASP.NET 1.x. ASP.NET Forms authentication provides a convenient way to incorporate a login form into your ASP.NET application and validate users against a database or other data store."   The ASP.NET Membership system has been extended to include other credential stores, such as windows authentication and Active Directory.  The membership provider connects to the configuration file element <membership>, a child of <system.web>, to configure the default provider, the list of providers, and the settings that each provider uses.

ASP.NET membership that incorporates authentication, authorization, membership and roles into a series of subsystems and providers that you can use to easily allow for personalization and secure access to your websites. There is an excellent overview of membership in the Learn section discussing migration from classic ASP.

The ASP.NET Wiki was started by Scott Hanselman in February of 2008. The idea is that folks spend a lot of time trolling the blogs, googlinglive-searching for answers to common "How To" questions. There's piles of fantastic community-created and MSFT-created content out there, but if it's not found by a search engine and the right combination of keywords, it's often lost.
 
The ASP.NET Wiki articles moved to CodeProject in October 2013 and will live on, loved, protected and updated by the community.
