Security Token Service (STS)


The Security Token Service (STS) is a partial implementation of the OASIS WS-Trust specification. It is a SOAP service that provides a secure means for exchanging security tokens of one type (e.g. username/password, SAML assertion, X.509 certificate, ...) for security tokens of another type. Additionally the STS may renew, validate, or cancel those tokens for which such functionality is appropriate.
