A secure, reliable binding suitable for cross-machine communication.
Assembly: System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)
The generates a run-time communication stack by default, which uses transport security, TCP for message delivery, and a binary message encoding. This binding is an appropriate Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) system-provided choice for communicating over an Intranet.
The default configuration for the is faster than the configuration provided by the WSHttpBinding, but it is intended only for WCF-to-WCF communication. The security behavior is configurable using the optional securityMode parameter in the constructor. The use of WS-ReliableMessaging is configurable using the optional reliableSessionEnabled parameter. But reliable messaging is off by default. More generally, the HTTP system-provided bindings such as WSHttpBinding and BasicHttpBinding are configured to turn things on by default, whereas the binding turns things off by default so that you have to opt-in to get support, for example, for one of the WS-* specifications. This means that the default configuration for TCP is faster at exchanging messages between endpoints than that configured for the HTTP bindings by default.
