SecurityMode Enumeration

Determines the security settings for a binding.

Namespace:  System.ServiceModel
Assembly:  System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)

public enum SecurityMode

Member nameDescription
NoneSecurity is disabled.
TransportSecurity is provided using a secure transport (for example, HTTPS).
MessageSecurity is provided using SOAP message security.
TransportWithMessageCredentialA secure transport (for example, HTTPS) provides integrity, confidentiality, and authentication while SOAP message security provides client authentication.

Any ProtectionLevel settings of a transport are ignored if the SecurityMode is set to None. For more information about the ProtectionLevel property, see Understanding Protection Level.

For more information about security and how this property affects general security features, see Securing Services and Programming WCF Security. For more information about the transport mode, see Transport Security.

Note that if you choose TransportWithMessageCredential, then the value set in HttpClientCredentialType or TcpClientCredentialType is ignored.

The following example sets the Mode property of the WSHttpBinding. For more examples, see How To: Set the Security Mode.


WSHttpBinding b = new WSHttpBinding();
b.Security.Mode = SecurityMode.Transport;
