    Web-based Authentication System

    Hi, I'm sorry if I ask the question below at the wrong place ~

    I am asked to develop a Web-based Graphical Password Authentication System. Graphical Password Authentication System is a system that allow users to login with pictures combination or other scheme rather than texture password. Is there any system vulnerabilities if i use javascript ?

    I am new to web-based programming. This is my first project to develop a web-based authentication system. I am wondering should i use javascript at the client side? Is it the proper programming language ?

    How about server side ? I thinking i will choose either php or MySQL but more people use ASP.net now, right ?

    Sorry for asking such a "noob" question. I appreciate all the suggestion and reminder from everyone.

    Thank you so much for helping ^^

    Don't attempt doing this in pure JavaScript. You'll need a server-side language like ASP, PHP, JSP, ColdFusion, etc.

    JavaScript might be useful in some fashion, though. Just not sure how.

    If anyone knows of a website that can offer ColdFusion help that isn't controlled by neurotic, pedantic jerks* (stackoverflow.com), please PM me with a link.

    JavaScript or, more specifically, ajax is sometimes used with (image) captchas to verify them without reloading the page. But the bulk of the OPs task shouts server-side.

    PHP and MySql are free, and easy to get up and running using XAMPP (WAMP or LAMP). You can even publish the site at limited, or even no, cost.

    ASP.Net can be created and tested using (free) Microsoft Studio Express but to publish requires a host with IIServer. I don't know if any of these exist for free, or limited, cost??

    They are quite different though..

    This assumes, of course, that you are already comfortable with HTML and CSS (and possibly some JavaScript).

    I have never worked with an Apache server, before. I installed XAMPP on my WinXP machine, at home, and still don't fully understand it. But, yeah, it's free.

    Conversely, you can download and install the fully-functional Developer Edition of ColdFusion Server. You can set it up for Apache, IIS, or use CF's built-in web server.

    Thanks for the help.

    Erm, just want to ask. Is there any designer tools for html and css ?

    For example, in Java programming, we have NetBean to design the program user interface.

    Couple of options. I use DreamWeaver for all of my development coding. It does have a "Design View" that can help. Alternatively, you can use PhotoShop or Fireworks (or another similar application) to graphically design the site, then "slice" the image appropriately for HTML.

    or use jQuery UI, ext, YUI, dojo, or any of the many UI-have libs out there.

    if you are coming from java, you might like YUI and DOJO the most.

    Visual Studio Express for Web has most of the features of DreamWeaver and doesn't cost anything

    You can ignore the ASP aspects and just use File/New File. Switch between Design and Source (code) with the buttons at the bottom (or Preview in Browser). Added: There's an Internal Browser so we can preview in a tab.
