Visual Studio 2017 .NET Core Example - SamlSignatureException

When running the ExampleIdentityProvider application and clicking on the “SSO to the Service Provider” button I get a SamlSignatureException exception. It appears to be failing when requesting XML signature generation from the security service at http://localhost/XmlSecurity. Can someone help me understand what is wrong? Thanks!

Please take a look at the Installation Guide PDF under the Documentation folder.
You need to ensure the XmlSecurity service is running.
The log shows that it cannot contact this service at http://localhost/XmlSecurity.
Please note that the XmlSecurity service is a workaround solution until .NET Core v2.0 adds XML Security support.
