<rsa>

 

A secure WCF client that connects to an endpoint with this identity verifies that the claims presented by the server contain a claim that contains the RSA public key used to construct this identity.

<identity>
<rsa>

  
<rsa value = "String" />  

The following sections describe attributes, child elements, and parent elements

Attributes

AttributeDescription
valueOptional String. The RSA public key value to be compared with on the client.

Child Elements

None

Parent Elements

ElementDescription
<identity>Specifies the identity of the service to be authenticated by the client.

A RSA check enables you to specifically restrict authentication to a single certificate based upon its RSA key or generated your own RSA key value. This enables stricter authentication of a specific RSA key at the expense of the service no longer working with existing clients if the RSA key value is changed.

For more information about using identity to validate a service to a client, see Service Identity and Authentication.

The following configuration code specifies the public key value of an X.509 certificate that is used to authenticate a server.

<identity>  
  <rsa value = "0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000"/>
