Preauthenticates a request.
Assembly: System (in System.dll)
public static Authorization PreAuthenticate( WebRequest request, ICredentials credentials )
If the authentication module can preauthenticate the request, the method returns an Authentication instance and sends the authorization information to the server preemptively instead of waiting for the resource to issue a challenge. This behavior is outlined in section 3.3 of RFC 2617 (HTTP Authentication: Basic and Digest Access Authentication). Authentication modules that support preauthentication allow clients to improve server efficiency by avoiding extra round trips caused by authentication challenges.
Authorization modules that can preauthenticate requests set the IAuthenticationModule.CanPreAuthenticate property to true.
