I'm writing a web UI to an existing system using MVC 5. My last ASP.NET experience was with MVC 4 and basically I'm struggling to find a solid yet 'simple' example to implement login authentication in MVC 5 where the user account tables with names, passwords
and roles already exist. The current out of the box implementation in new projects seems very overcomplicated when wanting to implement something basic.
I don't need or want to create new tables, neither do I need to register new users via the web app and this is managed by the existing Windows application. Any help would greatly appreciated as it seems all the articles on the ASP site for MVC 5 identification
are not directed towards those existing business systems that already have users tables. More towards the creation of new systems that might require authentication via facebook, google etc....
Many thanks in advance

If you have existing tables you could perhaps give a try
