Custom STS through WIF

  • Badrinarayanan Lakshmiraghavan


A Security Token Service (STS) is a web service that issues security tokens. The concept of STS is defined in a web service specification called WS-Trust, which specifies how a security token must be requested and issued. Creating an STS from scratch involves a fair bit of work. Windows Identity Foundation (WIF) , a framework from Microsoft, does all the work for you by abstracting away the nuts and bolts of WS-Trust and presenting a nice API surface for you to work on as you build an STS.
