Occasionally, you may want an application to verify a user's user name and password (hereafter referred to as credentials). You can do this a couple of different ways, depending on the operating system on which the application runs.

This article describes all of the common ways to verify a user's credentials and the special requirements for each method.

Note: Collecting user credentials from a User-mode application can be annoying to the users and can provide a possible security hole in the enterprise computing environment. The Unified Logon requirement (a requirement that the user should only be required to type their credentials one time at the Ctrl+Alt+Del screen), was added to the Microsoft BackOffice logo requirements for these very reasons. It is important to make sure that you really need to gather credentials and that some other method of client/server validation is not more appropriate. Consult the security documentation in the Platform SDK for more information on impersonation and programming secured servers.
