The PingFederate security token service (STS) uses token generators to issue security tokens that can be consumed by web services at your site. You must configure at least one generator to set up an STS connection or a token-to-token mapping.

In the Token Generators window, create, modify, review, or remove a token generator instance.
Note: PingFederate comes bundled with the SAML 1.1 Token Generator and SAML 2.0 Token Generator.

You can deploy additional token translators from Ping Identity website.

For simplicity, this topic focuses on configuring an instance of the SAML 1.1 or 2.0 Token Generator. For information about add-on token generators, see Integration overview.

For more information about WS-Trust, see Web services standards.
