Gets the credentials used by clients to communicate a service endpoint over the channels produced by the factory.
Assembly: System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)
Property ValueType: System.ServiceModel.Description.ClientCredentials
The ClientCredentials used by clients if they are configured for the factory or if the endpoint is non-a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) and is in either the created or opening communication state; otherwise a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
The ClientCredentials object is used by the ClientBase(TChannel) class (or a class that derives from this class) to create the proxy objects that can call services. The ClientCredentials object is also accessible through the ClientCredentials property.
Setting ChannelFactory.Credentials.Windows.AllowedImpersonationLevel to TokenImpersonationLevel.Anonymous always results in an anonymous logon regardless of impersonation level.
