I have created a new ASP.NET MVC application with .NET 4.5. I have successfully set up authentication with an STS. The authentication flow is working fine and I am able to get the ClaimsIdentity, containing the desired claims, on Thread.CurrentPrincipal.
Now I need the bootstrap token to secure the calls to my service layer. I have set the saveBootstrapContext to true on the identityConfiguration element.
<system.identityModel> <identityConfiguration saveBootstrapContext="true">
However, the BootstrapContext property on the ClaimsIdentity is always null.
var identity = Thread.CurrentPrincipal.Identity as ClaimsIdentity; var context = identity.BootstrapContext; // context is always null
Am I missing anything here? This was supposed to be straightforward :(
