Thenamespace contains classes that implement authentication in the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) claims-based identity model.
Beginning with .NET Framework 4.5 and the integration of Windows Identity Foundation (WIF) into the .NET Framework, the WCF claims-based identity model has been superseded by WIF. WIF provides a claims-based identity object model that can be used to provide authentication and authorization across several Microsoft product stacks, including the CLR, WCF, and ASP.NET. The WIF classes that represent security tokens and that are used to process security tokens are contained in the System.IdentityModel.Tokens namespace; for example, SecurityToken and SecurityTokenHandler. Beginning with .NET 4.5, the classes in the System.IdentityModel.Tokens namespace should be used instead of those in the namespace.
The exception that is thrown when one or more exceptions have occurred at the CardSpace service level. The cause of the error will be logged in the event log.
This class is intended for use by the infrastructure.

Exception class to indicate that the recipient certificate was not valid.
Authenticates a KerberosReceiverSecurityToken security token.
Represents a security token provider that provides KerberosRequestorSecurityToken security tokens for a SOAP message sender.
Exception class to indicate that the policy supplied by the recipient could not be validated.
Authenticates a RsaSecurityToken security token.

Exception class to indicate that the CardSpace service is busy processing other requests.
The exception that is thrown when CardSpace has not been started on the user's computer.
The exception that is thrown when there is a problem communicating with the security token service.
Indicates that a policy was provided to the system that included options that were unsupported.
