Does SiteSearchASP.NET work with password protected websites?

Yes, when integrated using the 'Customizable Integration' option, sites protected by Basic Authentication or Integrated Windows Authentication can be indexed.

Support for forms based authentication is also possible, providing you program your website according to these guidelines.

If your site uses HTTP Basic Authentication, the crawler can also be configured to impersonate the currently authenticated user. It is important to note that enabling this could cause issues in a website that is personalised to each user (as the search results would reflect the site content personalised to another user). To enable, add a property of EnableBasicAuthenticationPassThrough="True" to the <Search:Settings control. It is important to note that enabling this could cause issues in a website that is personalized to each user (as the search results would reflect the site content personalized to another user).

The crawler can be also be configured to use a specific username/password for Basic or Integrated Windows Authentication by adding the following properties to the <Search:Settings control.

AuthenticationUser="<string>"
AuthenticationPass="<string>"
AuthenticationDomain="<string>"

The AuthenticationDomain property should only be specified when Integrated Windows Authentication is used. This is optional.
