The System.Web.Configuration.PassportAuthentication class allows you to access and configure a node in the Machine.config or Web.config configuration file identified by the passport tag.
This type is part of a group that includes the System.Web.Configuration.AuthenticationSection, System.Web.Configuration.FormsAuthenticationConfiguration, and System.Web.Configuration.AuthenticationMode types.
The System.Web.Configuration.PassportAuthentication class can write information into the related section of the configuration file at machine, site, or application level only. Any attempt to write in a configuration file at a different level in the hierarchy will result in an error message generated by the parser. You can use this class to read configuration information at any level in the hierarchy.
