I have started developing sharepoint website. Sharepiont supports Active Directory and Form based authentication. What is the simplest way to implemnt user authenication and registration in sharepoint without using AD or SQL membership provider?

There is no "simple" way. You would have to write a custom authentication provider for some other source if you don't want AD, LDAP, or SQL.

Thanks for the reply. Also is it possible to use the standard sharepoint columns to create a user data source for athentication...?
