Peter Kellner recently published parts 3 and 4 of his popular how-to series on building a custom remote security management application for ASP.NET 2.0's Membership and Roles feature. Part 3 covers Ajax enabling it with Atlas, and Part 4 covers adding personalization support with profiles. You can find the entire series on MSDN here:
- ASP.NET 2.0 Member/Role Management, Part 1: Security and Configuration Overview
- ASP.NET 2.0 Member/Role Management, Part 2: Implementation
- ASP.NET 2.0 Member/Role Management, Part 3: AJAX Enhancements with Microsoft Atlas
- ASP.NET 2.0 Member/Role Management, Part 4: Adding Personalization with Profiles to the ObjectDataSource

Hope this helps,
P.S. IIS 7.0 includes built-in support within its GUI Admin tool for ASP.NET 2.0 Membership and Role Management -- making both local and remote management of sites super easy. It will work with any custom provider you've built (so it is not limited to only working with the built-in ones). It also does all of its remote management using HTTP based web-services -- which means it can work through firewalls as well as in shared hosting environments. I'll post some screen-shots of this in the near future showing it off (it is pretty darn cool).
