If you set this property to a value other than the default and generate a configuration file using ServiceModel Metadata Utility Tool (Svcutil.exe), it is not generated correctly and you must manually edit the configuration file to set the corresponding configuration attribute to the desired value.

The following code shows how to access and set this property.

NetTcpBinding binding = new NetTcpBinding();
// Specify the mode, then the credential type.
binding.Security.Mode = SecurityMode.Message;
binding.Security.Message.ClientCredentialType =
    MessageCredentialType.UserName;
binding.Security.Message.AlgorithmSuite =
    System.ServiceModel.Security.SecurityAlgorithmSuite.Basic256;
