Explain briefly, how Passport authentication works ?

 Posted by Akiii on 5/18/2012 | Category: ASP.NET Interview questions | Views: 1908 | Points: 40

The steps regarding Passport Authentication are as below :-

(1) Install the Passport SDK
(2) Set the application’s authentication mode to Passport in Web.config(by default it is windows)
(3) Set authorization to deny unauthenticated users
(4) Use the PassportAuthentication_OnAuthenticate event to access the user’s Passport profile to identify and authorize the user. It checks the user’s machine for a current passport authentication cookie
(5) Implement a sign-out procedure to remove Passport cookies from the user’s machine

Thanks and Regards
