SamlSecurityToken security tokens specify their claims using SAML assertions, which can specify the subject of the security token. The claims in a SAML assertion are represented by SAML statements. The SAML specification defines a set of SAML statement types and one of them is a SamlSubjectStatement. A SamlSubjectStatement asserts the principal that is the subject of the SamlSecurityToken security token. This principal is specified using a SamlSubject class.
