Using Kentico as a security provider
I have a site developed in kentico in which users can log in.

I want to create a second site, not using kentico which uses the kentico site for authorisation/authentication.

Is this possible? If so, how?

For example does Kentico itself act as an OpenID provider, or does it have some API for authenticating users that could be used externally?

RE:Using Kentico as a security provider

You can simply share the authentication cookie once the user is logged into a Kentico site (sharing cookies).

This article may be helpful too.

And here is the API to authenticate the user in code.
