A pointer to the set of one or more credentials required to log in to the token or Cryptographic Service Provider. The credentials structure can contain an immediate value for the credential, such as a passphrase or PIN, or the caller can specify a callback function the CSP can use to obtain one or more credentials.

LoginName (input/optional)
  

A name or ID of the caller. The value is used with the provided AccessCred to authenticate and authorize the caller for login with the CSP. The CSP can require that a name value be provided. If a name value is not provided, the CSP can assume a default name under which to perform the authentication and authorization check, or the login request can fail.

This field is reserved for future use. The value NULL should always be given. (May be used for multiple user support in the future.)
