AuthenticationManager

Synopsis

This class is responsible for finding an authentication module to authorize access to network resources. You do not need to use this class unless you have defined your own authentication scheme. By default, Basic, Digest, NTLM, and Kerberos authentication schemes are supported. This, for the most part, covers the needs of 99.9% of all C# programmers in the world. Kerberos is not supported on Windows 95/98 or on Windows ME.
