WinLogon programming interface

Environnement : WINDOWS NT4

I want substitute my authentification in order to use WinLogon authentification.

- Is it possible to interact with WinLogon to provide an specific authentification via an interface (Exit),

- Is it possible to write a new WinLogon process (using an source file example " WinLogon.c").

It might help if you described in more detail what you are trying to accomplish.  It is possible to replace the WinNT logon subsystem but it's a major undertaking.  There might be a better way of accomplishing your purpose than to replace the whole thing.

In fact I  want use my own authentification instead the WINDOWS authentification (User Windows, Pasword Windows).
My authentification is different, using Token,  Card or other mean.

Sorry to tell you, no way. It is very important for NT security: to prevent another authentification other than the one of itself. Else, NT would lose its C2 level as M$ mentioned.

This feature assures NT's logon is security, no any guy can get client's username and password from this wall.

Please refer NT resource kit for more info.

Hope this helps,
