I understand that the web is stateless, and that state can be maintained between pages using Sessions, which is always on the server and per client. It knows which browser (request) the generated id belongs to because of the use of cookies or url embedding it uses. I understand that the url embedding can be unsafe if encryption is not used with it.

I have read that the anonymous ASP.NET Profile method for maintaining state uses cookies to identify a request coming in from a browser.

So how is an authenticated Profile user's identity matched with each request? Is a cookie or url embedding method used here as well?
