Gets a security token.
Assembly: System.IdentityModel (in System.IdentityModel.dll)
The method is called by the ClientCredentials class when a client sends a SOAP message and a security token is required.
The method calls the GetTokenCore method.
In most cases the timeout parameter is not used by derived classes of SecurityTokenProvider such as UserNameSecurityTokenProvider. However, sometimes retrieving a security token involves distributed messaging. An example is IssuedSecurityTokenProvider used in a federated service. In these cases the timeout parameter is used to avoid exceptions caused by network failures, message loss, and other error conditions.
