Assembly: System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|ClearAnonymousIdentifier||Clears the anonymous cookie or identifier associated with a session.|
|Dispose||Releases all resources, other than memory, used by the .|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|

The class creates and manages anonymous identifiers for an ASP.NET application. Anonymous identifiers are used by features that support anonymous identification such as the ASP.NET System.Web.Profile.
The Creating event is accessed by specifying a subroutine named AnonymousIdentification_Creating in the Global.asax file for your ASP.NET application.
Anonymous identification is independent of any type of ASP.NET authentication.
The following code example shows a Web.config file for an application that enables anonymous identification.
<configuration> <system.web> <authentication mode="Forms" > <forms loginUrl="login.aspx" name=".ASPXFORMSAUTH" /> </authentication> <anonymousIdentification enabled="true" /> <profile defaultProvider="AspNetSqlProvider"> <properties> <add name="ZipCode" allowAnonymous="true" /> <add name="CityAndState" allowAnonymous="true" /> <add name="StockSymbols" type="System.Collections.ArrayList" allowAnonymous="true" /> </properties> </profile> </system.web> </configuration>
