public sealed class FormsIdentity : System.Security.Principal.IIdentity


The System.Web.Security.FormsIdentity class is used by the System.Web.Security.FormsAuthenticationModule when a user is authenticated with forms authentication. An instance of the System.Web.Security.FormsIdentity class is created using the System.Web.Security.FormsAuthenticationTicket that is decrypted from the forms-authentication cookie or from the URL. The new instance of the System.Web.Security.FormsIdentity class is used to construct a new System.Security.Principal.GenericPrincipal object that is set as the value of the System.Web.HttpContext.User property for the current System.Web.HttpContext.
