WSFederationAuthenticationModule.AuthenticationType Property

.NET Framework 4.5

Gets or sets the value of the wauth parameter to use in WS-Federation sign-in requests (“wsignin1.0”).

Namespace:  System.IdentityModel.Services
Assembly:  System.IdentityModel.Services (in System.IdentityModel.Services.dll)
public string AuthenticationType { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
A URI that specifies the authentication type.

The wauth parameter is optional. If the AuthenticationType property is set to null or an empty string, the wauth parameter is not included in the sign-in request.

You can override this setting on each HTTP request by adding a handler for the RedirectingToIdentityProvider event. This event is raised just before the module redirects to the security token service (STS) with a WS-Federation sign-in request message. The STS is specified by the Issuer property.
