This class is designed for use with the AuthenticationBase<T>. It provides properties to support serialization of principal values to the domain context generated for any domain service extending AuthenticationBase<T> class. It also presents those values through the IPrincipal and IIdentity interfaces for use in shared authorization scenarios.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
