I want to know about custom role provider. First I will state my requirement. My web application needs authentication and authorisation. The authentication is maintained by a different system(creating/deleting users) etc. So I will use one web service to
authenticate users into my application. Based one authentciation credential, i want to restrict access to my app. I heard like there is a way to implement custom role provider like http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms998314.aspx#paght000013_step3 and
finally I want to achieve Sitemap trimming http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms178428%28v=vs.80%29.aspx. is it possible to implement a role provider without membership provider and my idea is doable or not? Any kind of help will be greatly appreciated.

Can you please look into my question again. My doubt is can role provider work without membership provider?

Yes, the role provider can work without the membership provider.
If you're looking to write a role provider, use the existing role provider code for a starting point or learning exercise. Get it from

Thanks Dave..What I have done is inside my login control's Authenticate event handler I have the following code
// Get user name and perform authentication and if a valid user user
This call will trigger my custom role provider's GetRolesForUser(string username) implementation
