You must override this property in derived classes and return the Type of the security token (SecurityToken) that is processed by the derived class.

The following code shows how to override the TokenType property to return the Type of the security tokens that are processed by a custom handler. The code is taken from the Custom Token sample. This sample provides custom classes that enable processing of Simple Web Tokens (SWT). For information about this sample and other samples available for WIF and where to download them, see WIF Code Sample Index.
