Properties

AdditionalHeaderClaims

Gets or sets the Dictionary<TKey,TValue> which contains any custom header claims that need to be added to the JWT token header. The 'alg', 'kid', 'x5t', 'enc', and 'zip' claims are added by default based on the SigningCredentials, EncryptingCredentials, and/or CompressionAlgorithm provided and SHOULD NOT be included in this dictionary as this will result in an exception being thrown. These claims are only added to the outer header (in case of a JWE).

Audience

Gets or sets the value of the 'audience' claim.

Claims

Gets or sets the Dictionary<TKey,TValue> which represents the claims that will be used when creating a security token. If both and Subject are set, the claim values in Subject will be combined with the values in Claims. The values found in Claims take precedence over those found in Subject, so any duplicate values will be overridden.

CompressionAlgorithm

Defines the compression algorithm that will be used to compress the JWT token payload.

EncryptingCredentials

Gets or sets the EncryptingCredentials used to create a encrypted security token.

Expires

Gets or sets the value of the 'expiration' claim. This value should be in UTC.

IssuedAt

Gets or sets the time the security token was issued. This value should be in UTC.

Issuer

Gets or sets the issuer of this SecurityTokenDescriptor.

NotBefore

Gets or sets the notbefore time for the security token. This value should be in UTC.

SigningCredentials

Gets or sets the SigningCredentials used to create a security token.

Subject

Gets or sets the ClaimsIdentity. If both and Subject are set, the claim values in Subject will be combined with the values in Claims. The values found in Claims take precedence over those found in Subject, so any duplicate values will be overridden.

TokenType

Gets or sets the token type. If provided, this will be added as the value for the 'typ' header parameter. In the case of a JWE, this will be added to both the inner (JWS) and the outer token (JWE) header. By default, the value used is 'JWT'. If AdditionalHeaderClaims also contains 'typ' header claim value, it will override the TokenType provided here. This value is used only for JWT tokens and not for SAML/SAML2 tokens
