Can I use certificates to send encrypted Http requests messages to WCF REST service for message level encryption? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have created a WCF RESTful web service which is working fine. I also created a REST based Http Client which is also working fine. I know both are using non-SOAP or Http messages.

    I want to send encrypted data using Http headers in Http requests using certificates. For some reason I don't want to use transport security available in WCF REST web service.

    I am using webhttpbinding. I also know that message security is not present in WCF REST web services and only transport level security SSL is present in WCF REST web service.

    Question 1: Will I be able send encrypted data using Http headers in Http requests using certificates?

    Question 2: Will WCF REST web service be able to process decrypted data send from Http headers ?

    Thanks in advance.
