WSFederationAuthenticationModule.Freshness Property

.NET Framework (current version)

The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Gets or sets the value of the wfresh parameter to use in WS-Federation sign-in requests (“wsignin1.0”).

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

public string Freshness { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String

The desired maximum age of authentication requests, in minutes.


In the next release of .NET Framework 4.5, the Freshness property will be of type String and its default value will be null.

The wfresh parameter is optional. If the Freshness property is set to null or an empty string, the wfresh parameter is not included in the sign-in request.

You can override this setting on each HTTP request by adding a handler for the RedirectingToIdentityProvider event. This event is raised just before the module redirects to the security token service (STS) with a WS-Federation sign-in request message. The STS is specified by the Issuer property.
