In most instances the UserNameSecurityTokenProvider class doesn't need to be called directly, as it is called when a client sends a SOAP message that requires a UserNameSecurityToken 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 UserNameSecurityToken security token, the GetToken method calls the GetTokenCore method.
