public:
 override System::Collections::ObjectModel::ReadOnlyCollection<System::Security::Claims::ClaimsIdentity ^> ^ ValidateToken(System::IdentityModel::Tokens::SecurityToken ^ token);
public override System.Collections.ObjectModel.ReadOnlyCollection<System.Security.Claims.ClaimsIdentity> ValidateToken (System.IdentityModel.Tokens.SecurityToken token);
override this.ValidateToken : System.IdentityModel.Tokens.SecurityToken -> System.Collections.ObjectModel.ReadOnlyCollection<System.Security.Claims.ClaimsIdentity>
Public Overrides Function ValidateToken (token As SecurityToken) As ReadOnlyCollection(Of ClaimsIdentity)

Parameters

token
SecurityToken

The token to be validated. Must be assignable from SessionSecurityToken.

Returns

ValidateToken(SessionSecurityToken, String)

Validates the specified session token and returns its claims.

public:
 virtual System::Collections::ObjectModel::ReadOnlyCollection<System::Security::Claims::ClaimsIdentity ^> ^ ValidateToken(System::IdentityModel::Tokens::SessionSecurityToken ^ token, System::String ^ endpointId);
public virtual System.Collections.ObjectModel.ReadOnlyCollection<System.Security.Claims.ClaimsIdentity> ValidateToken (System.IdentityModel.Tokens.SessionSecurityToken token, string endpointId);
override this.ValidateToken : System.IdentityModel.Tokens.SessionSecurityToken * string -> System.Collections.ObjectModel.ReadOnlyCollection<System.Security.Claims.ClaimsIdentity>
Public Overridable Function ValidateToken (token As SessionSecurityToken, endpointId As String) As ReadOnlyCollection(Of ClaimsIdentity)

Parameters

token
SessionSecurityToken

The token to be validated. Must be assignable from SessionSecurityToken.

endpointId
String

The identifier of the endpoint to which the token is scoped.

Returns

ReadOnlyCollection<ClaimsIdentity>

The identities that are contained in the token.

Exceptions

token is null.

-or-

endpointId is null.

token is not assignable from SessionSecurityToken.

The EndpointId property of the specified token is not null or empty and its value is different than that specified by the endpointId parameter.

Remarks

Performs a check to make sure that the specified token is scoped for the specified endpoint ID and, if so, invokes the SessionSecurityTokenHandler.ValidateToken(SecurityToken) method; otherwise, throws a SecurityTokenException.

Important

Session tokens that have an EndpointId property that is null or empty are considered to be globally scoped. This presents a potential security risk. For this reason you should make sure that the EndpointId property is set in your session tokens.
