SecurityKeyIdentifierClause Class

Represents an abstract base class for a key identifier clause.

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

public abstract class SecurityKeyIdentifierClause

The SecurityKeyIdentifierClause type exposes the following members.

Protected methodSecurityKeyIdentifierClause(String)Initializes a new instance of the SecurityKeyIdentifierClause class using the specified key identifier clause type.
Protected methodSecurityKeyIdentifierClause(String, Byte[], Int32)Initializes a new instance of the SecurityKeyIdentifierClause class using the specified key identifier clause type, nonce, and the derived key length.

Public propertyCanCreateKeyGets a value that indicates whether a key can be created.
Public propertyClauseTypeGets the key identifier clause type.
Public propertyDerivationLengthGets the size of the derived key.

Public methodCreateKeyCreates a key based on the parameters passed into the constructor.
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetDerivationNonceGets the nonce that was used to generate the derived key.
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodMatchesReturns a value that indicates whether the key identifier for this instance is equivalent to the specified key identifier clause.
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Typically, the SecurityKeyIdentifierClause does not need to be used, other than when a custom security token service is created. When a security token service returns a security token, the issued security token contains references to attached and unattached security tokens. Attached references refer to security tokens that are contained within the security header of a SOAP message and unattached references reference security tokens that are not included within the security header of a SOAP message. These references typically affirm the authenticity of the issued security token.
