Credential Management User Interface

The Credential Management User Interface component allows you to prompt users for credential information. For example, you can require data that identifies the user and confidential data.

Applications can use the Credentials Management API to request account information be used in place of the credentials established at logon. This is useful when the user's logon credentials do not have privileges or permissions required by the application. As with a standard logon, the user's password is never available to the application.

Applications that perform user validation requiring information other than logon credentials can use the Credentials Management user interface API to gather this information.
