Hi there.

I wrote my own Authentication Service, which uses a DSA to query a webservice wether the user credentials are valid or not. The service returns a custom user class if successfull.

Since my application should also be usable when offline, I´m wondering how to authenticate the user then. The user informations are stored on the server the service can´t authenticate the user when offline. I don´t want the user to have to be online to start the application.

Has anyone got an idea or a good advice to solve this problem?

Thanx for your help.
