Host WCF service with wshttpbinding in Shared Server, ( can not configure IIS and certificates) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have hosted a WCF service with wsHttpBinding with default settings. Its working fine in localhost. but when i hosted it on the shared Server, its showing error on client side.

    Later when i checked, the default ClientCredentialType = Windows. That is why the wcf service is working fine in my System but Not in Shared Server.

    I just want to secure or encrypt the Message between server and client. ( i don't want username validation Or any authentication )

    I have gone through several webpages but all of them requires certificated installation either self-signed certificate or trusted one.

    Since it is a shared server so i can not install certificate nor configure the IIS. ( and also i don't want to load dynamically certificate from file or dll ).

    Is there any way to host wcf service with message security and  without certificate ?

  • Hello,

    >>Is there any way to host wcf service with message security and without certificate ?

    Currently we can use the following credential types when using the message security:
    But it seems that except the None and Windows authentication, others credential types are needed to install the certificate.

    For more information, please try to refer to:
