X509SecurityTokenProvider Class

Represents a security token provider that provides X509SecurityToken security tokens for a SOAP message sender.

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

public class X509SecurityTokenProvider extends SecurityTokenProvider implements IDisposable

In most instances it is not necessary to call the X509SecurityTokenProvider class directly, as it is called when a client sends a SOAP message that requires a X509SecurityToken security token. Specifically, a client specifies the type of security token required, using the ClientCredentials class and the ClientCredentials class calls the GetToken method to get a security token. When the security token required is an X509SecurityToken security token, the GetToken method calls the GetTokenCore method.
