Represents a claim for a SAML security token that asserts the subject's name.

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

public class SamlNameIdentifierClaimResource

Use the SamlNameIdentifierClaimResource class to create a Claim instance for a SamlSecurityToken subject name 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 the subject of the security token. 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 SamlSubjectStatement. A SamlSubjectStatement asserts the principal that is the subject of the SamlSecurityToken security token. This principal is specified using a SamlSubject class. The SamlNameIdentifierClaimResource class represents the name identifier for a SamlSubject.


Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
