Hi Experts ..

I have a WCF service self-hosted, I am trying to access ServiceSecurityContext.Current from within the operations of the WCF service, but it always NULL.

I am testing the WCF Service and I am trying to find a way to pass non-null ServiceSecurityContext.Current. any idea?

Thanks,

I fixed it by editing the binding configuration (app.config):

 <wsHttpBinding>
          <binding name="securingWSHttpBinding"  >
            <security mode ="Message">
              <transport clientCredentialType="Windows" />
              <message establishSecurityContext="true" />
            </security>
          </binding>
      </wsHttpBinding>
