    I'm looking into different security options to secure a site that has a 3 IIS servers.

    Currently, there are 3 IIS servers: each one has a web app that ties into other servers in the network.
    right now, we're using a sub-domain that points to one of the IIS servers. when you go to this subdomain, you will be prompted to login (i used IIS Basic Authentication for this)
    Once you login, you will get to a "gateway" page that will allow to click on a link for whatever app you want to use. the gateway page resides on one of the IIS servers. the authentication only protects the documents on that particular server. How can I make it so that this will also protect the other IIS servers on the same domain?
    i can clarify anything thats not clear. i appreciate any suggestions.

    we're not quite ready to do SSL and we don't have an Active Directory Server to use Digest Authentication.

    Only have one gateway for all of the applications that you are running. You can also password each application (might become an admin nightmare) prior to anyone accessing it. Session variables can ensure they stay connected and authenticated while they are using it. These do tend to hit performance when there are many users. I was going to suggest SSL ,but you beat me to it. There could also be some other type of encryption that could secure the transmissions if they are that critical.

    hi thanks for the reply.
    i like the idea of having one gateway. however, we don't want to run all the web apps on the one server. is this what you mean?

    Have you considered using a password to log into the Domain which would give access to all the sub-domains?

    Also depending on your requirements, you could use a product like Entrust/GetAccess: http://www.entrust.com/getaccess/index.htm
