Helper class that provides mechanism to plug the FederatedSecurityTokenManager to any WCF ServiceHost application. Create an instance of this class and add this as the ServiceCredentials to your ServiceHost.
Assembly: Microsoft.IdentityModel (in Microsoft.IdentityModel.dll)
Extends the System.ServiceModel.Security.ServiceCredentials class. Can be configured on any ServiceHost to create a FederatedSecurityTokenManager which uses SecurityTokenHandlers along with the security token support provided in WCF. This class also provides properties to set OutOfBandTokenResolver which may be used to validate the signature of a SAML token and register a custom SecurityTokenHandler.
To enable an existing WCF service with WIF, the ConfigureServiceHost method of this class needs to be called before calling ServiceHost.open() on that instance. Service host instance needs to be passed as a parameter to the ConfigureServiceHost() call. This call will make the necessary changes in the service host instance to insert WIF features within the WCF message processing pipeline.
