LASS OS Design Development (Windows CE 5.0)
Security services in Microsoft Windows CE 5.0 include the Local Authentication Subsystem (LASS). LASS provides the infrastructure that supports application-independent user authentication, consistent authentication regardless of the local authentication plugin (LAP) that is used, and policy-based authentication using authentication events (AEs).
