This class is designed for use with the AuthenticationBase<T>. It provides properties to support serialization of principal values to the domain context generated for any domain service extending AuthenticationBase<T> class. It also presents those values through the IPrincipal and IIdentity interfaces for use in shared authorization scenarios.
