In this article I’m going to show you how to automatically log into an ASP.NET website running on a kiosk.
This comes in handy when you’re reusing your existing website and want to host it on a kiosk, but want to automate the login process. Often times in this scenario it doesn’t make sense for the user to log in manually.
A common question I hear is “how can I put my PowerPoint presentation on a kiosk?” While PowerPoint does have a “kiosk mode” it’s not secure enough for an unattended environment like a self-service kiosk.
A fairly simple workaround is to take advantage of the free Google Docs service which allows you to view your PowerPoint presentation from a web browser.
Once your PowerPoint presentation is published to the web in Google Docs it’s simply a matter of using kiosk software to lockdown your kiosk and prevent malicious user tampering.
