Property Value

Type: System.ServiceModel.Configuration.XmlDictionaryReaderQuotasElement
The XmlDictionaryReaderQuotas that specifies the complexity constraints.

The complexity constraints include items such as a maximum element depth, a maximum length for string content within the message. The constraints protect against a class of denial of service (DOS) attacks that attempt to use message complexity to tie up endpoint processing resources.
