Hi Stefanus,

There are some reasons I can think of:

  1. use integrated authentication on some scenarios and just don't use the security datanase
  2. use the same security database for two or more instances of the same application (different departments, but IT board member must have access to all of them)
  3. use the same security database for several different applications

Historically Security has often been separated from the actual database.

In the early 2000's we had Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM) that later became Active Directory Lightweight Directory Service (AD LDS).

Today we still have ASP.NET Membership Provider, and the WebMatrix WebSecurity that wraps a membership provider.

The ProjectTracker sample uses the membership provider for users and roles.
