# Passport
-Passport is an authentication framework for [Connect](
-and [Express](, which is extensible through "plugins"
-known as _strategies_.
-Passport is designed to be a general-purpose, yet simple, modular, and
-unobtrusive, authentication framework. Passport's sole purpose is to
-authenticate requests. In being modular, it doesn't force any particular
-authentication strategy on your application. In being unobtrusive, it doesn't
-mount routes in your application. The API is simple: you give Passport a
-request to authenticate, and Passport provides hooks for controlling what occurs
-when authentication succeeds or fails.
