Finally, we will cover token caching in a TokenProvider implementation. The SCTProvider is essentially useless without a cache, as otherwise there is no way for a third-party to know the secret key corresponding to a SecurityContextToken. Any TokenProvider implementation can cache a generated token in the TokenStore object supplied as part of the TokenProviderParameters.

The SCTProvider creates a SecurityToken with the ID of the SCT, the secret key associated with the SCT and the client principal. If a "realm" is passed through, then this is recorded as a property of the SecurityToken (keyed via STSConstants.TOKEN_REALM). Finally, the STS ships with two TokenStore implementations, an in-memory implementation based on eh-cache, and an implementation that uses Hazelcast.
