SessionAuthenticationModule Class

Windows Identity Foundation
[Starting with the .NET Framework 4.5, Windows Identity Foundation (WIF) has been fully integrated into the .NET Framework. The version of WIF addressed by this topic, WIF 3.5, is deprecated and should only be used when developing against the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 or the .NET Framework 4. For more information about WIF in the .NET Framework 4.5, also known as WIF 4.5, see the Windows Identity Foundation documentation in the .NET Framework 4.5 Development Guide.]

When the STS issues a security token for the user, SessionAuthenticationModule also creates a session security token for the user and places it in a cookie. On subsequent requests, the SessionAuthenticationModule intercepts this cookie and uses it to reconstruct the user’s IClaimsPrincipal.


Namespace: Microsoft.IdentityModel.Web
Assembly: Microsoft.IdentityModel (in Microsoft.IdentityModel.dll)
