RequestSecurityTokenResponse Class

Windows Identity Foundation
[Starting with the .NET Framework 4.5, Windows Identity Foundation (WIF) has been fully integrated into the .NET Framework. The version of WIF addressed by this topic, WIF 3.5, is deprecated and should only be used when developing against the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 or the .NET Framework 4. For more information about WIF in the .NET Framework 4.5, also known as WIF 4.5, see the Windows Identity Foundation documentation in the .NET Framework 4.5 Development Guide.]

Represents the wst:RequestSecurityTokenResponse element, which is used to return a security token.

Namespace: Microsoft.IdentityModel.Protocols.WSTrust
Assembly: Microsoft.IdentityModel (in Microsoft.IdentityModel.dll)

Dim instance As RequestSecurityTokenResponse

public class RequestSecurityTokenResponse : WSTrustMessage
public class RequestSecurityTokenResponse extends WSTrustMessage
public class RequestSecurityTokenResponse extends WSTrustMessage

The wst:RequestSecurityTokenResponse element (message) contains the parameters and properties in the response sent by a security token service (STS) to a security token request (RST) made by a client. The response message (or element) is abbreviated as RSTR. The RequestSecurityTokenRequest class contains properties that represent the elements of the RSTR. An RSTR can form a response to a request that corresponds to any of the request bindings defined by WS-Trust; for example, the Issuance binding, the Renewal binding, the Validate binding, or the Cancel binding. Many of the properties in the RequestSecurityTokenResponse class correspond to elements that are present only in specific kinds of responses as defined by these bindings. Depending on the kind of response a particular RequestSecurityTokenResponse object represents or the parameters present in the specific response that it represents, some properties of the object may be null.

Requests arrive at the STS in a message that contains a wst:RequestSecurityToken element (RST). This message is represented by the RequestSecurityToken class.

For more information about the element that this class represents, see the version of the WS-Trust specification that applies to your scenario. You can find links to the WS-Trust specifications and other WS-* specifications relevant to WIF in the Windows Identity Foundation SDK topic.
