ASP.NET forms authentication – created a ticket, but how does FormsAuthentication know about it?

    I have seen several examples where a FormsAuthenticationTicket is
    constructed and added to a manually created cookie. However, I can’t
    connect the dots to see how FormsAuthentication “knows” about this
    ticket that has been created? The only method that I can see might do
    this is the SetAuthCookie, but the ticket isn’t passed as a parameter.

    I need to create my own FormsAuthenticationTicket because I need it to
    expire at the end of the day. The web.config setting only allows me
    to specify a scalar minute value. I need it to expire at...

    DateTime.Now.AddDays(1).Date;

    Can someone shed some light for me please?

    Thanks,
    John
