In a federated scenario, services state the requirements on incoming credentials. For example, the incoming credentials must possess a certain set of claim types. This requirement is manifested in a security policy. When a client requests a security token from a security token service (for example, CardSpace), it puts the requirements into a token request so that the security token service can issue the security token that satisfies the requirements accordingly.

The following code adds two claim type requirements to a security binding.

WSFederationHttpBinding binding = new WSFederationHttpBinding();
binding.Security.Message.ClaimTypeRequirements.Add
   (new ClaimTypeRequirement
   ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/ws/2005/05/identity/claims/EmailAddress"));
binding.Security.Message.ClaimTypeRequirements.Add
   (new ClaimTypeRequirement
   ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/ws/2005/05/identity/claims/UserName", true));

The following config file is used with the preceding code.
