The Identity Training Course (downloadable Kit) has an example showing how to use the Location and Authorization elements in web.config to have differentiated access:

<location path="SecretPage.aspx">
        <allow roles="Manager"/>
        <deny users="*"/>

Hi Rami_kel,

For MVC you also have the AuthorizeAttribute Class. Therefore, you could decorate your Controller or Actions with:


[Authorize(Users = "*")]

Hope this helps!
