Credential Management API

The credential management functions constitute the set of functions that a credential manager must implement. These are:

  • NPLogonNotify, an event-handler function that the MPR calls when a user logs on.
  • NPPasswordChangeNotify, an event-handler function the MPR calls when an account password is changed.

The credential management functions are always called in the system context (LocalSystem) rather than the user context.
