Keith Brown has written a great article for MSDN on how to build identity-aware applications for .NET.

From the introduction:

What is an "identity-aware" application, anyway? In my mind, first and foremost it's an application that relies upon details of its clients' identity, adjusting its behavior based on those details. That's why the first section of this paper focuses on authentication. Another part of being identity-aware is being directory aware. I'm not here to tell you to throw away SQL Server in favor of Active Directory, but I am here to tell you that there's a whole lot to be gained by relying more on that directory. You may be surprised how few lines of code it takes to look up a user's e-mail address or phone number, and this might be just enough to give an ISV that competitive edge he's been looking for. And if you're looking for a self-contained directory service you can include with your application, Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM) is for you, and I'll show you where to go for more information later in this paper.
