Running ASP.NET from VisualStudio with NO certificate RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1400108183 posted

    Is there a way I can run ASP.NET in a browser without a certificate?

    I'm practicing my MVC skills during lunch, so I have no need to certify/verify anything related to what I'm doing in VS.

    I had to delete the default-installed IIS Express certificate to install a work-related certificate issued to localhost. Apparently having multiple certificates issued to local host takes significant (and potentially risky) work.

    In the project properties I tried setting "SSL Enabled" to false and Windows Authentication to "Disabled", but it still seems to require the certificate.

    Hi Micah

    I think it’s necessary for us to use authentication in our application, even for local testing. In particular, Basic authentication and forms authentication send unencrypted credentials. To be secure, these authentication schemes must use SSL. In addition, SSL client certificates can be used to authenticate clients. For this issue, it seems that there is other authentication existed.

    Regards
