ClientCredentialsSecurityTokenManager Class

Manages security tokens for the client.

Namespace:  System.ServiceModel
Assembly:  System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)

public class ClientCredentialsSecurityTokenManager : SecurityTokenManager

This class handles security token serialization, security token provision and security token authentication for the client. There is one instance of this class for each client channel factory.

The following code shows how you can override this class to create a custom Client Credentials Security Token Manager.

internal class MyClientCredentialsSecurityTokenManager : 
    MyClientCredentials credentials;

    public MyClientCredentialsSecurityTokenManager(MyClientCredentials credentials)
        : base(credentials)
        this.credentials = credentials;

    public override SecurityTokenProvider CreateSecurityTokenProvider(
        SecurityTokenRequirement tokenRequirement)
        // Return your implementation of the SecurityTokenProvider, if required. 
        // This implementation delegates to the base class. 
        return base.CreateSecurityTokenProvider(tokenRequirement);

    public override SecurityTokenAuthenticator CreateSecurityTokenAuthenticator(
        SecurityTokenRequirement tokenRequirement, out SecurityTokenResolver outOfBandTokenResolver)
        // Return your implementation of the SecurityTokenAuthenticator, if required. 
        // This implementation delegates to the base class. 
        return base.CreateSecurityTokenAuthenticator(tokenRequirement, out outOfBandTokenResolver);

    public override SecurityTokenSerializer CreateSecurityTokenSerializer(SecurityTokenVersion version)
        // Return your implementation of the SecurityTokenSerializer, if required. 
        // This implementation delegates to the base class. 
        return base.CreateSecurityTokenSerializer(version);
