Assembly:  System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)

public X509CertificateRecipientServiceCredential ServiceCertificate { get; }

You can specify the certificate to use by calling members of the X509CertificateRecipientServiceCredential object returned by this property.

You can also set this value using the <certificate> for <identity> element in a client application configuration file.

This code shows how to specify the certificate that a service uses.

A ServiceHost class is created, followed by a single complex code statement that does the following:

Uri a = new Uri("net.tcp://MyMachineName/tcpBase");
Uri[] baseAddresses = new Uri[] { a };
ServiceHost sh = new ServiceHost(typeof(SayHello), baseAddresses);
sh.AddServiceEndpoint(c, b, "Aloha");
   sh.Credentials.ServiceCertificate.SetCertificate(
       StoreLocation.LocalMachine,
       StoreName.My,
       X509FindType.FindByThumbprint,
       "af1f50b20cd413ed9cd00c315bbb6dc1c08da5e6");
sh.Open();
