    Hi All,

    Ours is ASP.NET webform based application. Till date we were using WIF for authentication. Now we need to move to Azure AD and have OpenID connect protocol using OpenID connect OWIN components. 

    With WIF i am aware of exactly how it works internally ( for example : WIF hooks to httpApplication EndRequest event and when user tries to access restricted resource, URLAuthorization module throw UnAuthorzed Access (401) and WIF OnEndRequestHandler will redirect to configured issuer for login and all. When user logs in - Authenticatehandler again by WIF module will take care of validating tokens and all)

    But when it comes to using OpenID connect OWIN libraries- i am not sure where and how it subscribes to these httpApplication events. Any pointers on this highly appreciated.
