I need an ActiveX control (or maybe a Browser Helper Object) that can run inside of IE for the purpose of authenticating users using hardware specific checks before allowing them to view certain webpages.

Theory of Operation:
1) User tries to login to a webpage on our server
2) Control loads if not loaded (Only IE is supported for this system)
3) Control checks certain items on local machine and prompts user for password
4) If password matches server records allows user to proceed
5) If hardware info or password does not match user is rejected

The reason I say maybe a BHO might work is that the client might want the session terminated if the user pulls the key from the system. I do not know a way to do this from an ActiveX control, but I think it could be easily done from a BHO.

The most important point here is to communicate with the server side file (ASP and ASP.NET) that the users session is authorized. The users password and client information will be validated on the server. This system must not be easily spoofed. I do not want a BHO that just adds a header to the information going back to the server, anyone with a packer sniffer could duplicate this easily.

The specifics of what has to be checked on the client side system will be discussed with serious parties only.

1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.

2) Complete ownership and distribution copyrights to all work purchased.

3) Documentation on how to setup the control. We will use our own setup program.

Windows XP / 2000, IE 5.5 or higher

I'm one of the top 30 coders on this site. I have build many systems using BHOs (word highlighters, search utils, URL monitors etc.). Recently, I did a project for Discovery Channel CDROMs, where the CDROMs were made to behave in a certain manner by plugging a BHO into the system (which also works on Windows Explorer, not just IE).

For your project, I can think of a solution where the BHO monitors the URL the browser is going to, and will prompt with a password etc. In order to authenticate, the BHO can establish an internal connection to your servers running the auth scripts. This would be a separate socket connection (I've used this concept earlier in an ad-based word highlight tool, where the word list was download in the background by the BHO using it's own internal socket connection).

If you were to read the feedback that my previous buyers have written about me, you will realize that I not only deliver good quality software, I actually use my over 17 years of programming experience to provide valuable suggestions to improve the functionality of a system.

Please let me know if you want me to provide some kind of a (no obligations) demo to you, so can check out my capabilities. I do all my work in Delphi, which creates very compact and efficient executables (DLL, of course, in case of a BHO). Please do let me know if that is acceptable to you.
