Microsoft: ASP (Active Server Pages) FAQ

ASP 101

Can users see my ASP code? by chiph
Posted: 16 Apr 01

ASP code runs on the server, so there's no need to hide it (unless your users have access to the server, and then you've got bigger problems).  Users cannot do a "View Source" on it, or look in their browser's cache to see your code.

The only thing the users can see is what you send them.  So they can see the HTML elements output by your ASP, and they can see any javascript, etc. that you send.  But that's all.  They'll never see your database connect string, or any of the code that accesses your database.
