Hi all!
I'm trying to entablish the best way to hand in their own user_id and password to the 3000 users of an applicattion developed to Internet.
I don't know which could be the best way to do this without forgetting the security because each user has some confidential information in his/her session.
Could you please help me?
Any clue could help me!
Thanks in advance!
Nancy.
ps. I don't have their e-mails so, descart the email way.

Well, if you don't know the e-mail addresses, I guess the only available channel is your website and that is a problem because:
A) the user has forgotten her password
B) the user needs to authenticate before getting to see her forgotten password
I'd say you're in trouble unless you can come up with another means of authentication based on the data you do have about the users.

And BTW, that question did not relate in any way to Web Services.

This is not a Web Services question. In fact, it's not specific to any one technology. I'm moving this thread to General Computing.
