I've got some reports that are to be accessed through a web-based application. I've been told that the only way to authenticate people and keep the data secure is to use forms authentication.

I've looked at the Microsoft articles on the subject but am still scratching my head in dismay. Does anyone out there have experience with this? Know where I can find some good sample code? Simple instructions?

Thanks,
Liz

Your best bet is Teo Lachev's forms authentication examples. Try a search for Teo and/or Proligika. His articles have appeared on DevX.
Of course the built in example from Microsoft is the best starting point.
Be sure to look at the example extensions when installing RS.
Brian Larson also has good examples in VB. Teo is a C# guy.
However, Teo dives into the use of not only users but groups for your own custom security extension.
Note I'm not certain in fall 2008, given the massive changes in IIS/RS if custom security will still be needed.
