Checking for login in WCF service

Hi,

I have a Silverlight application that calls a WCF service to retrieve data from an SQL database. The selection from this database should be dependent on who is logged in to the site. How can I check for the users role in the WCF service? In a regular aps.net page I would do something like this:

        if (HttpContext.Current.User.IsInRole("admin"))
        {
            //Do something
        }

but that wouldn't work in the WCF service - right?

Best regards
RTSol
