ServiceHost sh = new ServiceHost(typeof(Calculator), httpUri);

// Create a binding that uses a certificate.
WSHttpBinding b = new WSHttpBinding(SecurityMode.Message);
b.Security.Message.ClientCredentialType =
    MessageCredentialType.Certificate;

// Get a reference to the authentication object.
X509ClientCertificateAuthentication myAuthProperties =
    sh.Credentials.ClientCertificate.Authentication;

switch (myAuthProperties.CertificateValidationMode)
{
    case X509CertificateValidationMode.ChainTrust:
        Console.WriteLine("ChainTrust");
        break;
    case X509CertificateValidationMode.Custom:
        Console.WriteLine("Custom");
        break;
    case X509CertificateValidationMode.None:
        Console.WriteLine("ChainTrust");
        break;
    case X509CertificateValidationMode.PeerOrChainTrust:
        Console.WriteLine("PeerOrChainTrust");
        break;
    case X509CertificateValidationMode.PeerTrust:
        Console.WriteLine("PeerTrust");
        break;
    default:
