Saml2AuthenticationContext 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 AuthnContext element specified in [Saml2Core, 2.7.2.2].


Namespace: Microsoft.IdentityModel.Tokens.Saml2
Assembly: Microsoft.IdentityModel (in Microsoft.IdentityModel.dll)

'Usage
Dim instance As Saml2AuthenticationContext

public class Saml2AuthenticationContext
public class Saml2AuthenticationContext
public class Saml2AuthenticationContext

This base class does not directly support any by-value authentication context declarations (represented in XML by the AuthnContextDecl element). To support by-value declarations, extend this class to support the data model and extend the Saml2SecurityTokenHandler class, overriding the ReadAuthenticationContext and WriteAuthenticationContext methods to read and write the by-value declaration.

For more information about the element that this class represents, see the SAML V2.0 Core specification. You can find links to this specification and other WS-* specifications relevant to WIF in the Windows Identity Foundation SDK topic.
