Specifies the address and binding of the local issuer to be used to obtain a security token.

<localIssuer address="string"
      bindingConfiguration="string" />

The following sections describe attributes, child elements, and parent elements



Attribute Description


Required string. Specifies the URI of the local issuer.


Optional string. One of the system-provided bindings. For a list, see System-Provided Bindings.


Optional string. Specifies a binding configuration found in the configuration file.

Child Elements


Element Description


Specifies identity information for the local issuer.

<headers> element

A collection of address headers that are required in order to correctly address the local issuer. You can use the add keyword to add a header to this collection.

Parent Elements


Element Description


Specifies a custom token used to authenticate a client to a service.

When obtaining an issued token from a Security Token Service (STS), the client application must be configured with the address and binding to use to communicate with the STS. When the WSFederationHttpBinding does not supply a URL for the security token service, or when the issuer address of a federated binding is http://schemas.microsoft.com/2005/12/ServiceModel/Addressing/Anonymous or null, the client's Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) channel uses the values specified by address and binding to communicate with the STS to obtain the issued token. For more information on configuring a local issuer, see How To: Configure a Local Issuer.

The following example sets the address, binding, and bindingConfiguration attributes of a localIssuer element.

  <behavior name="MyEndpointBehavior">
    <issuedToken cacheIssuedTokens="false" 
     <localIssuer address="net.tcp://cohowinery/tokens" 
                  bindingConfiguration="myTcpBindingConfig" />
