Represents a condition that must be taken into account when assessing the validity of a SAML assertion.

Namespace:  System.IdentityModel.Tokens
Assembly:  System.IdentityModel (in System.IdentityModel.dll)

public abstract class SamlCondition

The SamlCondition type exposes the following members.

Protected methodSamlConditionInitializes a new instance of the SamlCondition class.

Public propertyIsReadOnlyWhen overridden in a derived class, gets a value indicating whether the properties of this instance are read-only.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodMakeReadOnlyWhen overridden in a derived class, causes this instance to be read-only.
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodReadXmlWhen overridden in a derived class, reads the condition from the specified XML reader.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodWriteXmlWhen overridden in a derived class, writes the condition into the specified XML serializer.

SamlSecurityToken security tokens specify their claims using SAML assertions and a set of conditions that must be taken into account when assessing the validity of the SAML assertion. The SamlCondition class represents a single condition. An example of a condition is whether the SAML assertion must not be cached, which is represented by the SamlDoNotCacheCondition class.

The SAML specification defines two conditions and it allows for the set of conditions to be extended. The two conditions defined by the SAML specification are SamlAudienceRestrictionCondition and SamlDoNotCacheCondition. To define a new condition, derive a class from the SamlCondition class.
