Perhaps because of abuse or other factors, such as the desire to authenticate users based on their Microsoft Passport, Microsoft implemented Gate Keeper and Gate Keeper Passport, and integrated both into their chat control.
The weakness of Gate Keeper and the fact the early MSN Chat Controls (1.0−3.0) had public functions for doing Gate Keeper authentication seemed to indicate Microsoft wanted third parties to be able to access their network as before, but they wanted to be able to control automated abuse.
Many of the MSN Chat Clones started up directly after MSN closed its services (2006), and additional networks have continued to spring up since then.In any event, these public functions allowed normal IRC clients to authorize themselves.With the release of the MSN Chat Control 4.0, the public functions were removed.The use of third-party applications on the MSN Chat Network was not prohibited, although it was unsupported.Third-party applications were required to use the same Authentication Methods as the MSN Chat Control.
If the control was instructed to connect to any address other than the server, it would not match the server's hash and thus authentication would fail.
