WCF Service - Bindings default security

When we talk about security in Windows Communication Foundation, It can be at two different levels i.e.
  • Transport Level Security
  • Message Level Security

Different WCF bindings have security defaults as follows:
1. BasicHttpBinding
  • No Security
  • Interopable with ASMX Web Services
2. WsHttpBinding
  • Message Level Security
  • SOAP Messages are encrypted
3. NetTcpBinding
  • Transport Level Security
  • Packets are encrypted but not the messages (SOAP messages)
