Specifies the settings for a binding used for the WS-MetadataExchange (WS-MEX) message exchange over HTTPS.
The following sections describe attributes, child elements, and parent elements.
A string that contains the configuration name of the binding. This value should be unique because it is used as an identification for the binding. Each binding has a name and namespace attribute that together uniquely identify it in the metadata of the service. In addition, this name is unique among bindings of the same type. Starting with .NET Framework 4, bindings and behaviors are not required to have a name. For more information about default configuration and nameless bindings and behaviors, see Simplified Configuration and Simplified Configuration for WCF Services.
This element holds a collection of standard and custom bindings.
This binding is essentially a WSHttpBinding binding that supports transport-level security using certificates. For more information about configuring and using such a metadata endpoint, see How to: Configure a Custom WS-Metadata Exchange Binding, How to: Retrieve Metadata Over a Custom Binding, and the sample Custom Secure Metadata Endpoint.
