Subject: RE: ASP.NET __VIEWSTATE crypto validation prone to replay attacks


Microsoft has addressed your issues 1-a, 1-b and 1-c by adding a property "ViewStateUserKey" to the System.Web.UI.Page class in .NET Framework 1.1.  The documentation for this property is here:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/cpref/html/frlrfsystemwebuipageclassviewstateuserkeytopic.asp

Of course, it is up to the individual web page developer to ensure an appropriate non-trivial value has been placed into this property.  As we all know, this is exactly the sort of detail that developers often forget or flub, with disastrous results.
