  • Hi,

    For security the ASMX and WCF service, we can use some authentication, and for the asmx web service, we can use the something like Forms authentication, Windows authentication and so on.
    For more information, please try to refer to:
    #Web Service Security and Authentication:

    Then also there are many authentication types supported by WCF Service. For example windows authentication, Basic authentication, Username authentication, Certifate authentication and so on.
