The claims for Saml2SecurityToken security tokens are expressed as part of a Saml2Assertion. A Saml2Assertion has an extensible set of claims known as SAML statements that are represented by the Statements property. The SAML authority that issued the SAML assertion is specified in the Issuer property.
