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

public EndpointAddress IssuerMetadataAddress { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.ServiceModel.EndpointAddress

The Binding to be used when communicating with the security token service out of band.

This address is used as the endpoint for the security token service that issues credentials for the service out of band.

The following code shows how to access this property from the binding, and set it.

// This method creates a WSFederationHttpBinding.
public static WSFederationHttpBinding 
       CreateWSFederationHttpBinding(bool isClient)
  // Create an instance of the WSFederationHttpBinding.
  WSFederationHttpBinding b = new WSFederationHttpBinding();

  // Set the security mode to Message.
  b.Security.Mode = WSFederationHttpSecurityMode.Message;

  // Set the Algorithm Suite to Basic256Rsa15.
  b.Security.Message.AlgorithmSuite = SecurityAlgorithmSuite.Basic256Rsa15;

  // Set NegotiateServiceCredential to true.
  b.Security.Message.NegotiateServiceCredential = true;

  // Set IssuedKeyType to Symmetric.
  b.Security.Message.IssuedKeyType = SecurityKeyType.SymmetricKey;

  // Set IssuedTokenType to SAML 1.1
  b.Security.Message.IssuedTokenType = 

  // Extract the STS certificate from the certificate store.
  X509Store store = new X509Store(StoreName.TrustedPeople, StoreLocation.CurrentUser);
  X509Certificate2Collection certs = store.Certificates.Find(
         X509FindType.FindByThumbprint, "0000000000000000000000000000000000000000", false);

  // Create an EndpointIdentity from the STS certificate.
  EndpointIdentity identity = EndpointIdentity.CreateX509CertificateIdentity ( certs[0] );

  // Set the IssuerAddress using the address of the STS and the previously created 
     // EndpointIdentity.
  b.Security.Message.IssuerAddress = 
         new EndpointAddress(new Uri("http://localhost:8000/sts/x509"), identity);

  // Set the IssuerBinding to a WSHttpBinding loaded from configuration. 
     // The IssuerBinding is only used on federated clients.
     if (isClient)
         b.Security.Message.IssuerBinding = new WSHttpBinding("Issuer");

     // Set the IssuerMetadataAddress using the metadata address of the STS and the
     // previously created EndpointIdentity. The IssuerMetadataAddress is only used 
     // on federated services.
         b.Security.Message.IssuerMetadataAddress =
             new EndpointAddress(new Uri("http://localhost:8001/sts/mex"), identity);
