Remarks

Security Warning:  Incorrect implementation of this method can compromise the security of your application. By returning a value of RPC_E_RETRY, users of your application might be exposed to unwanted information disclosure. RPC_E_RETRY should be returned only when the application is running on a known trusted server or after you have verified information from the user. For more information, refer to Security Considerations: URL Monikers.

The IHttpSecurity interface should be implemented by applications that handle any authentication problems, instead of using the default user interface.
