Message security and Kerberos seem to go hand in hand these days in the world of WCF. While Microsoft makes it particularly easy for you to secure a respective service under wsHttpBinding with Kerberos, I was unsure how do to this while running under SOAP 1.1. Thankfully, Microsoft gives us a very robust customBinding configuration solution for these cases when wsHttpBinding or basicHttpBinding just won’t do.
Configuration files are a lifeblood for just about every .NET developer. You don’t realize how much you rely on the configuration file until it’s not readily available to you. I recently had to travel down the path of either rolling my own configuration file solution, or figuring out how to leverage the .NET configuration solution from a stand alone class library.
