Getting CardSpace Tokens Programmatically
The wrapper allows you to basically pass in the required details (issuer and target URI, the target identity as well as required/optional claims) and get back the encrypted XML token.
This code snippet shows how to use the wrapper to get a token for a self issued card:
IdentitySelector selector = new IdentitySelector(); selector.IssuerUri =
new Uri("http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/ws/2005/05/identity/issuer/self"); selector.TargetUri = new Uri("http://relyingParty"); selector.SetTargetCertificate("RelyingParty", X509FindType.FindBySubjectName, StoreLocation.CurrentUser, StoreName.AddressBook); selector.RequiredClaims.Add(ClaimTypes.GivenName); selector.RequiredClaims.Add(ClaimTypes.Surname); selector.RequiredClaims.Add(ClaimTypes.Email); string tokenString = selector.GetTokenString();
From this point on it is up to you to use this token in whatever way you want.
It is as easy a shipping a string to your relying party.
