Credential Providers allows user to logon to windows using credentials of different types(Password, OTP) as requested by provider. miniOrange provides Password and OTP credential providers .
Credential providers which tell Windows which user they are associated with are referred to as v2 credential providers. Providers which don't provide that information are referred to as v1 credential providers. By default, any credential provider created in the Windows Vista or Windows 7 timeframe is a v1 credential provider.
Logon UI Overview
In Windows Vista and Windows 7, Logon UI was very much about choosing an authentication method first and foremost.Windows 8 is designed to be extremely personalized to each user on the PC. In Windows 8, user tiles are shown instead of multiple methods to authenticate a single user in the Deselected State screen (where credential tiles are enumerated in Windows Vista and Windows 7).
- The "back" button; pressing this will return the user to the Deselected State screen. This button appears only if there are multiple user accounts on the PC.
- The user tile
- The user name, email address, and signed-in status
1. The email address appears only if the user has a Microsoft Account.
2. The signed-in status appears only if the user is currently signed-in.
- The "Sign-in options" link
1. This link appears only if the user has multiple v2 credential providers associated with their account.
The example above shows the breakdown of items drawn by a credential provider.
- The fields a credential provider requests to be drawn will appear between the user name area and the Sign-in options link.
1. In the example above, the provider requested only a password entry box and the "submit" button.
2. The same fields are available for v2 credential providers as were available in Windows 7, and they are specified for display in the same manner.
3. This area will grow based on the number of requested fields and will scroll when necessary.
- 2.The currently selected credential provider's icon
1. Any v2 credential provider associated with the selected user will have its icon displayed in this area.
2. Windows draws a border around the currently-selected credential provider's icon( PIN provider,OTP provider)
- v2 credential providers do not provide the tile used to represent the user account; Windows draws the user tile for the provider.
- v2 credential providers do not render the name, the signed-in status, or (in the case of a connected account) the email address of the user account for which they're signing in; Windows draws this for the provider.
- v2 credential providers do not need to specify a default credential; Windows automatically selects the last-used v2 credential provider for the selected user.
- v2 credential providers need to provide an image to represent their provider under the "Sign-in options" link
- v2 credential providers must implement the ICredentialProviderCredential2 interface and return a valid SID on the GetUserSID function. This tells Windows which user(s) the provider should be associated with.
