An abstract base class that can be implemented to verify an expected identity against an authorization context that represents a remote endpoint, or to create an identity from an endpoint address.
Assembly: System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|CheckAccess||Implements a method to verify an identity.|
|CreateDefault||Creates a default instance of this class.|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|TryGetIdentity||Tries to create an identity from an endpoint.|
The WCF infrastructure calls the TryGetIdentity method first to retrieve the service's identity from the message. Next, the infrastructure calls the CheckAccess method with the returned EndpointIdentity and AuthorizationContext.
