Use the SecurityTokenManager class when you need a custom security token, security token authenticator, or security token provider. Use a custom security token to handle credentials that WCF does not support. Use a custom security token authenticator when the authentication methods WCF provides are not sufficient. A SecurityTokenManager class returns a security token authenticator in the CreateSecurityTokenAuthenticator(SecurityTokenRequirement, SecurityTokenResolver) method. A security token provider provides security tokens for outgoing SOAP messages. A SecurityTokenManager class returns a security token provider in the CreateSecurityTokenProvider(SecurityTokenRequirement) method.
