This class has been deprecated and is no longer supported. Microsoft Passport Network has been replaced by Windows Live ID. For more information about how to use Windows Live ID to authenticate users in a Web application, see Windows Live ID SDK.

This example demonstrates implementing the soft sign-in authentication approach. 
In order for the example to work, the following requirements must be met. 
You can find details on these requirements in the Passport SDK documentation.

1. You must modify the Web.config file associated with this page so that 
authentication mode is set to "Passport".
2. You must have the Passport SDK installed.
3. You must have a Passport Site ID for the site where your page resides. 
If your Site ID is in the PREP environment, you will also need a PREP Passport.
4. You must have installed the encryption key you received after registering your 
site and receiving a site ID.
5. You must have the Passport Manager object settings correctly configured for your site.

Dim identity As PassportIdentity = Me.Context.User.Identity
' Determine whether the user is already signed in with a valid
' and current ticket. Passing -1 for the parameter values 
' indicates the default values will be used.
If (identity.GetIsAuthenticated(-1, -1, -1)) Then
    Me.Response.Write("Welcome to the site.<br /><br />")
    ' Print the Passport sign in button on the screen.
    ' Make sure the user has core profile information before
    ' trying to access it.
    If (identity.HasProfile("core")) Then
        Me.Response.Write("<b>You have been authenticated as " & _ 
        "Passport identity:" & identity.Name & "</b></p>")
    End If
