Description af4178a2 2015-11-08 07:33:05 UTC
The method GetKeyedHashAlgorithm of InMemorySymmetricSecurityKey class with SecurityAlgorithms.HmacSha256Signature as argument throws System.NotSupportedException.

The code which creates the HMACSHA256 instance is commented out on mono master branch without any obvious reason: https://github.com/mono/mono/blob/master/mcs/class/System.IdentityModel/System.IdentityModel.Tokens/InMemorySymmetricSecurityKey.cs#L126

Also the method IsSupportedAlgorithm returns false when specifying SecurityAlgorithms.HmacSha256Signature.

HMACSHA256 is already properly supported by mono, therefore HMACSHA256 should be enabled for compatibility reasons.
