Extending ASP.NET Processing with HTTP Modules
An HTTP module is an assembly that is called on every request made to your application. HTTP modules are called as part of the ASP.NET request pipeline and have access to life cycle events throughout the request. HTTP modules therefore give you the opportunity to examine incoming and outgoing requests and take action based on the request. The topics in this section provide information on how HTTP modules work and how to create them.
