The FPCAuthenticationScheme object represents an authentication scheme. Authentication schemes can be used instead of the built-in Windows authentication methods supported by Forefront TMG to authenticate Web requests. For more information, see Authentication Methods.
The following authentication schemes are supplied with Forefront TMG:
The authentication schemes that are available to a Web listener are specified by including references to the applicable FPCAuthenticationScheme objects in the FPCRefs collection held in the AuthenticationSchemes property of the FPCWebListenerProperties object.
This object is an element of an FPCAuthenticationSchemes collection, and a new object representing an authentication scheme can be created by calling the Add method of this collection.
A third-party authentication scheme can be added to Forefront TMG with a Web filter. Web filter registration should include registration of all the authentication schemes that the filter supports. Web filters register authentication schemes using the Add method of the FPCAuthenticationSchemes collection.

This object inherits from the FPCPersist object, which contains methods and properties related to the persistent storage of an object's data. They include methods for exporting an object's data to and importing it from XML documents.
The FPCAuthenticationScheme object does not define any methods.
The FPCAuthenticationScheme object defines the following properties.
Gets or sets the description of the authentication scheme.
Gets or sets the namespace of the authentication scheme.
Gets a Boolean value that indicates whether the authentication scheme is predefined.
Gets or sets a value from the FpcAuthenticationSchemeProvides enumerated type that specifies whether the authentication scheme provides a user namespace and whether the authentication scheme provides an authentication method.
Gets or sets a value from the FpcServiceTypes enumerated type that specifies which services can use the authentication scheme.
Gets or sets the name of the vendor that supplied the authentication scheme.
Gets or sets the version of the authentication scheme.
|CancelWaitForChanges||Cancels the registration established by the WaitForChanges method (for use in C and C++ programming only).|
|CanImport||Returns a Boolean value that indicates whether the object's properties can be imported from the specified XML document.|
|Export||Writes the stored values of all of the object's properties to the specified XML document.|
|ExportToFile||Writes the stored values of all of the object's properties to the specified XML file.|
|GetServiceRestartMask||Retrieves a 32-bit bitmask of the FpcServices enumerated type that specifies which services need to be restarted for currently unsaved changes to take effect.|
|Import||Copies the values of all of the object's properties from the specified XML document to persistent storage.|
|ImportFromFile||Copies the values of all of the object's properties from the specified XML file to persistent storage.|
|LoadDocProperties||Provides the XML document's properties so that you can know what information can be imported from the document.|
|Refresh||Reads the values of all of the object's properties from persistent storage, overwriting any changes that have not been saved.|
|Save||Writes the current values of all of the object's properties to persistent storage.|
|WaitForChanges||Registers to wait for an event indicating that the contents of the object have changed (for use in C and C++ programming only).|
|PersistentName||Gets the persistent name of the object. The persistent name of an object is a name that is unique for the object at the respective level of the COM object hierarchy.|
|VendorParameterSets||Gets an FPCVendorParametersSets object that can hold sets of custom data for extending the object.|
This object implements the IFPCAuthenticationScheme interface.
|Client||Requires Windows Vista or Windows XP.|
|Server||Requires Windows Server 2008.|
|Version||Requires Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG).|
