Property Value

Type: System.IdentityModel.Tokens::SecurityTokenHandlerConfiguration^

The configuration object for the current instance.

The Configuration property is typically set by the configuration infrastructure from the <securityTokenHandlerConfiguration> element in the configuration file during application start up.

In derived classes, you use the Configuration property to access configuration settings; for example, the issuer name registry to use in the ValidateToken method can be accessed from the SecurityTokenHandlerConfiguration::IssuerNameRegistry property of the configuration object.
