1.5 Prerequisites/Preconditions

This protocol operates against a site that is identified by a URL that is known by protocol clients. When using HTTP transport, the protocol server endpoint is formed by appending "/_vti_bin/SPClaimProviderWebService.svc" to the URL of the site, for example: http://www.contoso.com/_vti_bin/SPClaimProviderWebService.svc.

When using HTTPS transport, the protocol server endpoint is formed by appending "/_vti_bin/SPClaimProviderWebService.https.svc" to the URL of the site, for example: https://www.contoso.com/_vti_bin/SPClaimProviderWebService.https.svc.

This protocol assumes that authentication has been performed by the underlying protocols.
