Namespace:  System.IdentityModel.Selectors
Assembly:  System.IdentityModel (in System.IdentityModel.dll)

public ref class CustomUserNameSecurityTokenAuthenticator : public UserNameSecurityTokenAuthenticator

Override the CustomUserNameSecurityTokenAuthenticator class when the Windows authentication provided by the WindowsUserNameSecurityTokenAuthenticator class isn't sufficient. The WindowsUserNameSecurityTokenAuthenticator class authenticates the user name and password in a UserNameSecurityToken security token as a Windows account.

To provide a custom authentication scheme, derive a class from the UserNamePasswordValidator class, implement the authentication scheme, and then pass that class to the constructor for the CustomUserNameSecurityTokenAuthenticator class.
