Restricting authentication to aspx pages in your authentication module

In your httpmodule that you are using for authentication, in the handler for the AuthenticateRequest event, include these lines:


   34 HttpApplication httpApp = (HttpApplication) sender;


   36             // Only authenticate for aspx pages

   37             if (Path.GetExtension(HttpContext.Current.Request.Url.LocalPath.ToLower()) != ".aspx")

   38             {

   39                 HttpContext.Current.Response.StatusCode = 200;

   40                 HttpContext.Current.SkipAuthorization = true;

   41                 return;

   42             }
