Represents a security token that is based upon XML.
Assembly: System.IdentityModel (in System.IdentityModel.dll)
Use the class when you receive a token over the wire that is not defined in a specification or there is no way for you to determine the type of the security token. For example, in a federation scenario when you send a Request Security Token (RST) to a Security Token Service (STS) you do not always know the type of the security token returned by the STS. In such cases, you can use a to store the security token as XML along with its internal and external references.
Use the class to define claims using XML when one of the built-in security tokens does not suffice. Other security tokens can define their claims using XML, however the security token generically allows a security token to have an application-defined set of XML.
