I am trying to understand how to identify the user that is requesting a license from my PlayReady server.

I can't seem to find in the API nor in the SOAP Message it sends, how to understand who is the user.

(I do not want yet to use the Domain Controller server)

Is that any possible?

Thank you

If you havent figured it out yet:

You can send custom data along to the playready server, so you can for instance give the player a user specific hash as parameter, which it then forwards to the PlayReady server, that can lookup the hash in a database.
