I'm going to be building a web site that will allow users to buy digital
media such as mp3 files and images. How can i implement an asp solution to
protect those files?
I was thinking of having the ASP page do a verification of the user, and
then write out the content-type in the response, and then stream the actual
file. I haven't tried this yet. This solution will only work if the file
is on the same server/location as the asp page.
I was considering putting the files in an NT protected directory, but this
creates all sorts of headaches and creating an NT user for every account
would be a pain.
Thanks for any help on this.
