.NET Framework (current version)

The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

When overridden in a derived class, deserializes the XML referenced by the specified XML reader to a key identifier clause that references a token processed by the derived class.

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

abstract ReadKeyIdentifierClause : 
        reader:XmlReader -> SecurityKeyIdentifierClause
override ReadKeyIdentifierClause : 
        reader:XmlReader -> SecurityKeyIdentifierClause


Type: System.Xml.XmlReader

An XML reader positioned at the start element of the XML to be deserialized into the key identifier clause.

Return Value

Type: System.IdentityModel.Tokens.SecurityKeyIdentifierClause

The key identifier clause that was deserialized from the XML.

By default this method throws a NotImplementedException exception.

Override this method to provide the logic to deserialize a key identifier clause from XML. If you override this method, you should also override the SecurityTokenHandler.CanReadKeyIdentifierClause method.
