ClaimsPrincipalHttpModule 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.]

This HttpModule converts the HttpContext.Current.User to an IClaimsPrincipal. It can be used to ensure that the security principal and the associated Identity used for ASP.Net applications (e.g. Page.User or Thread.CurrentPrincipal) are claims-based. It makes use of the CreateFromPrincipal(IPrincipal) method. The conversion takes place in response to the PostAuthenticateRequest event.

Namespace: Microsoft.IdentityModel.Web
Assembly: Microsoft.IdentityModel (in Microsoft.IdentityModel.dll)
