WindowsAuthenticationModule.Authenticate Event

Occurs when the application authenticates the current request.

Namespace: System.Web.Security
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

public event WindowsAuthenticationEventHandler Authenticate
/** @event */
public void add_Authenticate (WindowsAuthenticationEventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_Authenticate (WindowsAuthenticationEventHandler value)

In JScript, you can handle the events defined by a class, but you cannot define your own.
Not applicable.

The Authenticate event is raised during the AuthenticateRequest event.

You can access the Authenticate event of the WindowsAuthenticationModule class by specifying a subroutine named WindowsAuthentication_OnAuthenticate in the Global.asax file for your ASP.NET application.

You can use the User property of the WindowsAuthenticationEventArgs object supplied to the WindowsAuthentication_OnAuthenticate event to set the User property of the current HttpContext to a custom IPrincipal object. If you do not specify a value for the User property during the WindowsAuthentication_OnAuthenticate event, the Windows identity supplied by IIS is used as the identity for the current request. If IIS uses anonymous authentication, then the Identity property is set to the identity returned by the GetAnonymous method.

The WindowsAuthentication_OnAuthenticate event is raised only when the authentication Mode is set to Windows and the WindowsAuthenticationModule is an active HTTP module for the application.

The following code example uses the WindowsAuthentication_OnAuthenticate event to set the User property of the current HttpContext to a custom IPrincipal object.

public void WindowsAuthentication_OnAuthenticate(object sender, WindowsAuthenticationEventArgs args)
{
  if (!args.Identity.IsAnonymous)
  {
    args.User = new Samples.AspNet.Security.MyPrincipal(args.Identity);
  }
}
