PrincipalPolicy Enumeration

Specifies how principal and identity objects should be created for an application domain. The default is UnauthenticatedPrincipal.

Remarks

For performance reasons, the default principal and identity objects are not created until they are needed. If a principal is explicitly added to the current thread, a default principal is not created and the principal policy setting is ignored.

A trusted host can override the default principal policy by specifying another of these values using the SetPrincipalPolicy method of an AppDomain.

Members

NoPrincipal No principal or identity objects should be created.
