I am new to ASP.NET Identity (or Identity Core) and getting started is a steep learning curve.
If we create a new ASP.NET Application using 'Individual User Accounts' authentication, it generates an Account Controller with a bunch of
methods and classes. All the boilerplate code is quite complicated and takes a lot of effort to customize. I do understand that the complexity helps secure our applications but it really is complicated in nature.
I am interested in knowing what other developers are using for Authentication in real world
MS applications. Are they using ASP.NET Identity as an industry standard or they role out their own authentication mechanism (which obviously can have security holes). In traditional ASP.NET web applications, we could use a
few tables to handle our authentication requirements.
Last but not the least, can someone point me to a good learning resource for
ASP.NET Identity. Most demos out there just create the tables and code on the fly without writing a single line of code. I am interested in learning the core
Identity concepts step by step.
Thanks in advance.
