I have a web page and service that is hit alot and I need to know if the user is signed in and which user is signed in.  I don't want to hit the database every single time so I was hoping I could extract this from the cookie while in c# code behind?  Can someone please elaborate or point me to some link that does?

User.Identity.Name does not query a database. It gets passed to the app by the authentication provider. Safe and well performant.
