wcf service with secure and unsecure endpoint RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
    I have a service .. let us call it ChoclateOrderService.

    I need to have 2 endpoints.
    1. Using basicHttpBinding - used in testing our functionality
    2. Using customBinding with Mutual Certificate - used with the actual consumer

    Usually, when I have "only" the secured endpoint...
    I decorate my Contract with ProtectionLevel=ProtectionLevel.Sign

    And when testing for myself, I use basicHttpBinding.. I change it to ProtectionLevel.None.

    So, if I want both.. what exactly should I do?
    Or do I need do it in a different manner altogether.

  • Hi,

    Because the “Protection-level settings” are controlled by the contract, so it is hard to have a secure and unsecure endpoint.

    One possible solution is to create two service contract, for more information, please try to check as below:

    We can create a service contract interface named as IServiceA with contract with ProtectionLevel=ProtectionLevel.Sign and the other a service contract interface named as IServiceB with contract with ProtectionLevel=ProtectionLevel.None, then the service named as ServiceTest implement the both as below:

    public class ServiceTest : IServiceA,IServiceB
    { }

    Then occording to the different contract, we can use the different the binding.
