  • Hello,

    In WCF Service, we can check the WCF authentication mode from the clientCredentialType of our binding from the endpoint in the service configuration file, Certificate specifies client authentication using a Certificate authentication, Windows specifies client authentication using Windows authentication, Username specifies client authentication using Username authentication.
