Represents the binding element used to specify Windows stream security settings.
Assembly: System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)
Transports that use a stream-oriented protocol such as TCP and named pipes support stream-based transport upgrades. Specifically, WCF provides security upgrades. The configuration of this transport security is encapsulated by this class as well as by SslStreamSecurityBindingElement, which can be configured and added to a custom binding. In addition, a third party can write its own custom StreamSecurityBindingElement. These binding elements extend the StreamUpgradeBindingElement class that is called to build the client and server stream upgrade providers.
A custom binding contains a collection of binding elements arranged in a specific order: the element representing the top of the binding stack is added first, the next element down in the binding stack is added second, and so on.
To add this class to a binding
Create a BindingElementCollection.
Create an instance of and add it to the collection.
Add any additional custom binding elements to the collection, such as TcpTransportBindingElement.
