WindowsAuthenticationEventArgs.Identity Property

Gets the Windows identity passed to the WindowsAuthenticationEventArgs constructor.

Namespace: System.Web.Security
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

public WindowsIdentity Identity { get; }
/** @property */
public WindowsIdentity get_Identity ()

public function get Identity () : WindowsIdentity

Not applicable.

Property Value

The Windows identity passed to the WindowsAuthenticationEventArgs constructor.

The WindowsAuthenticationModule constructs a WindowsAuthenticationEventArgs object using the Windows identity supplied by IIS and the current HttpContext and passes it to the WindowsAuthentication_OnAuthenticate event.

If IIS uses anonymous authentication, the Identity property is set to the identity returned by the GetAnonymous method.

The following code example uses the WindowsAuthentication_OnAuthenticate event to set the User property of the current HttpContext to a custom IPrincipal object.

public void WindowsAuthentication_OnAuthenticate(object sender, WindowsAuthenticationEventArgs args)
{
  if (!args.Identity.IsAnonymous)
  {
    args.User = new Samples.AspNet.Security.MyPrincipal(args.Identity);
  }
}
