KeyCredentialManager sample

Shows how to use the Windows.Security.Authentication.Credentials.KeyCredentialManager API for utlizing Windows Passport as a user authentication method.

Note: This sample is part of a large collection of UWP feature samples. If you are unfamiliar with Git and GitHub, you can download the entire collection as a ZIP file, but be sure to unzip everything to access shared dependencies. For more info on working with the ZIP file, the samples collection, and GitHub, see Get the UWP samples from GitHub. For more samples, see the Samples portal on the Windows Dev Center.

The currently existing system of using passwords as authentication is prevalent and as such this sample stands as an example of how Windows Passport can easily be upsold to and integrated into existing authentication applications.

Shows the account lifecycle for an existing app user utilizing Passport. This includes:

  • Provisioning Passport for the user
  • Handling both Passport and password methods of login
  • Checking Passport to authenticate the user
  • Deleting the Passport for a logged in user.
