In this lab you will assign a shorter time period to session expiry in the roleManager and SessionState elements of Web.config to protect session values from being stolen by attackers.


The objective of this lab is to provide students guidance on how to choose and implement time for session expiry in the roleManager and SessionState elements in theWeb.config file.
