A claim set defines the claim language that can be used within a corporation or between two agreeing corporations. When used between two corporations it is the incarnation of a business-level agreement to exchange the defined authorization data.
Each external entity that communicates with the Federation Server has an associated claim set. This includes Account Partners, Resource Partners, Account Stores, and Applications. The claim set defines the language that will be used by the Federation Server to communicate with that entity.
A corporate claim set contains the following information:
UPN, Role=[Developer, Tester, PM], Custom=[SSN])
A corporate claim set is a claim set associated with the Federation Server itself. All incoming claims are transformed into a corporate claim set, and all internal Federation Server actions are performed on that claim set. With a corporate claim set, transformations need not be individually administered between any two entities which need to communicate; rather, each entity shall define a single transformation to or from the corporate claim set.
