Use the SecurityTokenManager class when a custom security token, security token authenticator, or security token provider are needed. A custom security token is needed to handle credentials that are not supported by WCF. A custom security token authenticator is needed when the authentication methods provided by WCF are not sufficient. A SecurityTokenManager class returns a security token authenticator in the CreateSecurityTokenAuthenticator method. A security token provider provides security tokens for outgoing SOAP messages. A SecurityTokenManager class returns a security token provider in the CreateSecurityTokenProvider method.

For details about using custom security token authenticators and security token providers, see Custom Credential and Credential Validation. For details about creating a custom security token, see How To: Create a Custom Token.
