Regarding ASP.NET Identity: how often is ASP.NET Identity used in real situation website projects?
We were only taught this in our studies and was wondering is there anything other options other any ASP.NET Identity when using Visual Studio and that is better.
Asp.Net Identity is the latest library by Microsoft and before it, we have been using Asp.Net Membership Provider and Web Security.
Since Asp.Net identity is built on OWIN, and working nice with Asp.Net Core, I don't see any other option to be used or offered by Microsoft.
You can use it for Forms Authentication, OAuth, Integration with Most of Social Identity Provider and Azure Active Directory.
I would say, it is the way to go
