The UserIdentityToken structure used in the Server Service Set allows Clients to specify the identity of the user they are acting on behalf of. The exact mechanism used to identify users depends on the system configuration. The different types of identity tokens are based on the most common mechanisms that are used in systems today. Table 185 defines the current set of user identity tokens. The ExtensibleParameter type is defined in 7.17.
