Credential Manager in Windows CE consists of a set of APIs that applications can be used to cache and obtain cached credentials.

Selecting Kerberos and NTLM authentication services in the Platform Builder catalog automatically adds Credential Manager to the OS design.

The credential manager has an API comprising five functions — — that read, write, delete, and update credential information. The following list shows the reasons you would use these functions:
