SecurityTokenAuthenticator Class

 

Authenticates a security token.

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


public abstract class SecurityTokenAuthenticator

NameDescription
System_CAPS_protmethodSecurityTokenAuthenticator()

Initializes a new instance of the SecurityTokenAuthenticator class.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodCanValidateToken(SecurityToken)

Gets a value indicating whether the specified security token can be validated by this security token authenticator.

System_CAPS_protmethodCanValidateTokenCore(SecurityToken)

When overridden in a derived class, gets a value indicating whether the specified security token can be validated by this security token authenticator.

System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodFinalize()

Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodMemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodValidateToken(SecurityToken)

Authenticates the specified security token and returns the set of authorization policies for the security token.

System_CAPS_protmethodValidateTokenCore(SecurityToken)

When overridden in a derived class, authenticates the specified security token and returns the set of authorization policies for the security token.

The SecurityTokenAuthenticator class and the classes that derive from it authenticate security tokens. Typically, you would only derive a class directly from SecurityTokenAuthenticator when you create a custom security token. If you wanted to override the default authentication or authorization behaviors for built-in security tokens, derive from one of the classes that derive from SecurityTokenAuthenticator, such as SamlSecurityTokenAuthenticator.

When you derive a class from SecurityTokenAuthenticator, override the following two methods: ValidateTokenCore and CanValidateTokenCore. The CanValidateTokenCore method determines whether this security token authenticator can authenticate a specific security token. The ValidateTokenCore method authenticates the security token and establishes a set of authorization policies for authorization. The authorization policies map the claims found in the security token to claims required by the application.
