WSFederationHttpSecurity.Message Property

Indicates the message security settings for the WSFederationHttpBinding.

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

public FederatedMessageSecurityOverHttp Message { get; }

The object returned specifies detailed message-level security properties for the wsFederationHttpBinding.

The following code shows how to access this property and use it to set properties of the wsFederationHttpBinding.

	// This method creates a WSFederationHttpBinding. 
	public static WSFederationHttpBinding 
        CreateWSFederationHttpBinding(bool isClient)
	  // Create an instance of the WSFederationHttpBinding.
	  WSFederationHttpBinding b = new WSFederationHttpBinding();

	  // Set the security mode to Message.
	  b.Security.Mode = WSFederationHttpSecurityMode.Message;
	  // Set the Algorithm Suite to Basic256Rsa15.
	  b.Security.Message.AlgorithmSuite = SecurityAlgorithmSuite.Basic256Rsa15;

	  // Set NegotiateServiceCredential to true.
	  b.Security.Message.NegotiateServiceCredential = true;

	  // Set IssuedKeyType to Symmetric.
	  b.Security.Message.IssuedKeyType = SecurityKeyType.SymmetricKey;

	  // Set IssuedTokenType to SAML 1.1
	  b.Security.Message.IssuedTokenType = 

	  // Extract the STS certificate from the certificate store.
	  X509Store store = new X509Store(StoreName.TrustedPeople, StoreLocation.CurrentUser);
	  X509Certificate2Collection certs = store.Certificates.Find(
          X509FindType.FindByThumbprint, "0000000000000000000000000000000000000000", false);
	  // Create an EndpointIdentity from the STS certificate.
	  EndpointIdentity identity = EndpointIdentity.CreateX509CertificateIdentity ( certs[0] );
	  // Set the IssuerAddress using the address of the STS and the previously created  
      // EndpointIdentity.
	  b.Security.Message.IssuerAddress = 
          new EndpointAddress(new Uri("http://localhost:8000/sts/x509"), identity);

	  // Set the IssuerBinding to a WSHttpBinding loaded from configuration.  
      // The IssuerBinding is only used on federated clients. 
      if (isClient)
          b.Security.Message.IssuerBinding = new WSHttpBinding("Issuer");

      // Set the IssuerMetadataAddress using the metadata address of the STS and the 
      // previously created EndpointIdentity. The IssuerMetadataAddress is only used  
      // on federated services. 
          b.Security.Message.IssuerMetadataAddress =
              new EndpointAddress(new Uri("http://localhost:8001/sts/mex"), identity);

      // Create a ClaimTypeRequirement.
	  ClaimTypeRequirement ctr = new ClaimTypeRequirement 
          ("", false);

	  // Add the ClaimTypeRequirement to ClaimTypeRequirements
	  // Return the created binding 
	  return b;
