OpenIdConnectAuthenticationHandler: message.State is null or empty

I am using UseOpenIdConnectAuthentication middleware for ASP.Net Core application to authenticate against Dells Cloud access manager token provider (setup to provide OpenId/OAuth2 authentication). Following is the code:

app.UseCookieAuthentication(new CookieAuthenticationOptions
AutomaticAuthenticate = true,
AutomaticChallenge = true,
AuthenticationScheme = "ClientCookie",
CookieName = CookieAuthenticationDefaults.CookiePrefix + "ClientCookie",
ExpireTimeSpan = TimeSpan.FromMinutes(5),
LoginPath = new PathString("/signin"),
LogoutPath = new PathString("/signout")

app.UseOpenIdConnectAuthentication(new OpenIdConnectOptions
RequireHttpsMetadata = false,
SaveTokens = true,
ClientId = "XYZClient_Id",
ClientSecret = "XYZ_ClientSecret",
ResponseType = OpenIdConnectResponseType.Code,
PostLogoutRedirectUri = "",
Configuration = new OpenIdConnectConfiguration {
AuthorizationEndpoint = "https://CAM.COM/CloudAccessManager/RPSTS/OAuth2/Default.aspx",
TokenEndpoint = "https://CAM.COM/CloudAccessManager/RPSTS/OAuth2/Token.aspx",
UserInfoEndpoint = "https://CAM.COM/CloudAccessManager/RPSTS/OAuth2/User.aspx",
Issuer= "urn:CAM.COM/CloudAccessManager/RPSTS",

But I am stuck at one point for a few hours now. I get the following error:

SecurityTokenInvalidSignatureException: IDX10500: Signature validation failed. There are no security keys to use to validate the signature

I am getting code and state back in url querystring

Any type of guidance is appreciated.

Added Issuer Signing key:

TokenValidationParameters = new TokenValidationParameters
IssuerSigningKey = new SymmetricSecurityKey(Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(Configuration.GetValue<string>("AppSettings:ClientSecret")))


The error you're seeing is caused by the fact you're not using the OpenID Connect provider configuration discovery feature offered by the OIDC middleware, that allows it to retrieve the cryptographic keys used to sign identity tokens.

If your provider supports this feature, remove the entire Configuration node and set Authority instead. All the endpoints should be automatically registered for you.

If it doesn't support this feature, you'll have to manually add the signing keys to OpenIdConnectOptions.TokenValidationParameters.IssuerSigningKeys.
