Defines the basic functionality of a principal object.
public interface class IPrincipal
The IPrincipal type exposes the following members.
|Identity||Gets the identity of the current principal.|
|IsInRole||Determines whether the current principal belongs to the specified role.|
A principal object represents the security context of the user on whose behalf the code is running, including that user's identity (IIdentity) and any roles to which they belong.
All principal objects are required to implement the IPrincipal interface. For more information about IPrincipal implementations, see the ClaimsPrincipal class.
