All, I’m considering moving a WCF client server app to gRPC (as recommended due to WCF end of life)

However, this looks like a tricky, as I can’t find a gRPC equivalence of

OperationContext.Current.ServiceSecurityContext.WindowsIdentity.Name;

Which is a major issue.

We’re a 100% windows shop, so I’m not bothered about portability.

    In what context are you trying to use a gRPC service Windows desktop or ASP.NET? Core or non Core?

    I think you may have to consider a gRpc service using ASP.NET Core Web based solution.
