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

public class SamlAuthenticationClaimResource

Use the SamlAuthenticationClaimResource class to create a Claim instance for a SamlSecurityToken authentication claim. The Claim class has a constructor that takes a resource, which this class can be passed to.

SamlSecurityToken security tokens specify their claims using SAML assertions, which can specify when the subject was authenticated. The claims in a SAML assertion are represented by SAML statements. The SAML specification defines a set of SAML statement types and one of them is a SamlAuthenticationStatement. A SamlAuthenticationStatement asserts that the statement's subject is authenticated by a particular means at a particular time. The SamlAuthenticationClaimResource class represents a claim resource for the SamlAuthenticationStatement.
