I'm trying to find in-depth resources on the authentication cycle.

Things like:

  • which HTTP requests are done in the process of authentication (mostly with claims based auth)
  • which events can we bind to (in IIS, is SP). One particular event is the event that triggers the browser to show the default login window in Windows Claims Auth
