Remarks

The Authenticate method calls the IAuthenticationModule.Authenticate method on each registered authentication module until one of the module responds with an Authorization instance.

The first Authorization instance returned is used to authenticate the request. If no authentication module can authenticate the request, the Authenticate method returns null.

Authentication modules are called in the order in which they are registered with the AuthenticationManager.
