CustomUserNameSecurityTokenAuthenticator Class

Authenticates a UserNameSecurityToken security token using a custom authentication scheme.

Namespace: System.IdentityModel.Selectors
Assembly: System.IdentityModel (in system.identitymodel.dll)

public class CustomUserNameSecurityTokenAuthenticator : UserNameSecurityTokenAuthenticator
public class CustomUserNameSecurityTokenAuthenticator extends UserNameSecurityTokenAuthenticator
public class CustomUserNameSecurityTokenAuthenticator extends UserNameSecurityTokenAuthenticator
Not applicable.

Override the CustomUserNameSecurityTokenAuthenticator class when the Windows authentication provided by the WindowsUserNameSecurityTokenAuthenticator class isn't sufficient. The WindowsUserNameSecurityTokenAuthenticator class authenticates the user name and password in a UserNameSecurityToken security token as a Windows account.

To provide a custom authentication scheme, derive a class from the UserNamePasswordValidator class, implement the authentication scheme, and then pass that class to the constructor for the CustomUserNameSecurityTokenAuthenticator class.
