Describe how Passport authentication works.

ASP.NET application with Passport authentication implemented checks the user's machine for a current passport authentication cookie. If it is not available, ASP.NET directs the user to a Passport sign-on page. The Passport service authenticates the user, stores an authentication cookie on the user's computer and direct the user to the requested page.
