WMS-Layer vis HTTPS

Is it possible to integrate an WMS-Layer using an https connection?

Our map service provider will switch from http to https very soon and we need to know if we can keep on using AspMap.

Thank you in preface.

The http/https protocol is fully processed by the web browser, AspMap just outputs what you set in the ServiceUrl property as an IMG tag.

Thank you for your answer.

And what about authentification? We'll get a user name and a password to access the WMS...

Re: WMS-Layer vis HTTPS

There is nothing about security in the WMS specification.
Security is another layer which is handled by web browsers and servers.

If your provider requires authorization to access WMS images, you will need to develop a WMS proxy(a simple web handler) which will forward requests to the WMS server and set password/username as credentials for the .NET WebRequest class.
