Mixed Authentication Disposition ASP.NET Module (MADAM)

MADAM is an HTTP module for ASP.NET that allows a single web application to employ standard HTTP authentication schemes (like Basic and Digest) to be used in addition to the non-standard Forms authentication. MADAM also includes a Basic authentication HTTP module.
