How to: Create a SecurityBindingElement for a Specified Authentication Mode

Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) provides several modes by which clients and services authenticate to one another. You can create security binding elements for these authentication modes by using static methods on the SecurityBindingElement class or through configuration, as shown in the following example.

For more information about the 18 authentication modes, see SecurityBindingElement Authentication Modes.

The following code example shows methods for creating bindings for the various authentication modes.

Note Note

Once an instance of the SecurityBindingElement object is created, a number of properties are immutable, such as KeyType and MessageSecurityVersion. Calling set on such properties does not change them.


// These public methods create custom bindings based on the built-in 
// authentication modes that use the static methods of 
// the System.ServiceModel.Channels.SecurityBindingElement class.
