Common Security Scenarios

The topics in this section catalog a number of possible client and service security configurations. Configurations vary according to a number of factors. For example, whether a service or client is on an intranet, or whether the security is provided by Windows or transport (such as HTTPS).

In This Section

  • Message Security with a Windows Client
    A variation of the certificate client. Servers have certificates, and each client has a certificate. A security context is established through TLS negotiation.
  • Trusted Subsystem
    A client accesses one or more Web services that are distributed across a network. The Web services access additional resources (such as databases or other Web services) that must be secured.
