  • Hi Vivek,

    This is Visual C# forum. As your issue is related to Windows Service I am moving your thread to WCF forum for getting quick response.

    Your understanding and cooperation will be grateful.

  • I am assuming that you are asking for windows authentication  with Authorisation restrictions to specific groups?

    Option A -

    Assuming you have turned on windows authentication for WCF , you can use declarative principle permissions . For details see

        [PrincipalPermission(SecurityAction.Demand, Role = "Administrators")]
        [PrincipalPermission(SecurityAction.Demand, Name = "John")]
        public string WcfOperation(string caller)
         //your regular code here
