Gets the collection of authorization policies for this security token.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyExternalTokenReference

Gets a security key identifier clause that references this security token when this security token is not included in the SOAP message in which it is referenced.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyId

Gets a unique identifier of the security token.(Overrides SecurityToken.Id.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyInternalTokenReference

Gets a security key identifier clause that references this security token when this security token is included in the SOAP message in which it is referenced.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyProofToken

Gets the proof token for the security token.

System_CAPS_pubpropertySecurityKeys

Gets the cryptographic keys associated with the proof token.(Overrides SecurityToken.SecurityKeys.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyTokenXml

Gets the XML that is associated with the security token.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyValidFrom

Gets the first instant in time at which this security token is valid.(Overrides SecurityToken.ValidFrom.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyValidTo

Gets the last instant in time at which this security token is valid.(Overrides SecurityToken.ValidTo.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodCanCreateKeyIdentifierClause<'T>()

Gets a value that indicates whether this security token is capable of creating the specified key identifier clause.(Overrides SecurityToken.CanCreateKeyIdentifierClause<'T>().)

System_CAPS_pubmethodCreateKeyIdentifierClause<'T>()

Creates the specified key identifier clause.(Overrides SecurityToken.CreateKeyIdentifierClause<'T>().)

System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodFinalize()

Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodMatchesKeyIdentifierClause(SecurityKeyIdentifierClause)

Returns a value that indicates whether the key identifier for this instance is equal to the specified key identifier.(Overrides SecurityToken.MatchesKeyIdentifierClause(SecurityKeyIdentifierClause).)

System_CAPS_protmethodMemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodResolveKeyIdentifierClause(SecurityKeyIdentifierClause)

Gets the key for the specified key identifier clause.(Inherited from SecurityToken.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns the current object.(Overrides Object.ToString().)

Use the GenericXmlSecurityToken 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 GenericXmlSecurityToken to store the security token as XML along with its internal and external references.

Use the GenericXmlSecurityToken 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 GenericXmlSecurityToken security token generically allows a security token to have an application-defined set of XML.
