KerberosSecurityTokenProvider Class

Represents a security token provider that provides KerberosRequestorSecurityToken security tokens for a SOAP message sender.

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

public class KerberosSecurityTokenProvider : SecurityTokenProvider

In most instances the KerberosSecurityTokenProvider class doesn't need to be called directly, as it is called when a client sends a SOAP message that requires a KerberosRequestorSecurityToken security token. Specifically, a client specifies the type of security token needed using the ClientCredentials class and the ClientCredentials class calls the GetToken method to get a security token. When the security token needed is a KerberosRequestorSecurityToken security token, the GetToken method calls the GetTokenCore(TimeSpan) method.
