WCF Transport Security fails if IIS running as NetworkService acco


I'm working on a Web application that consumes a WCF Service that uses basic
HTTP binding with transport security and certificates for client credentials.
Just to clarify, the WebServer (IIS 7) is the client, and an application
that self hosts the WCF service is the server.

This is the binding configuration that I use on the client and service side:
<basicHttpBindi ng>
<binding name="basicHttp BindingWithTran sportSecurity">
<security mode="Transport ">
<transport clientCredentia lType="Certific ate" />
</basicHttpBindin g>

When I run IIS 7 using the default NetworkService account, I get this error:
Could not establish secure channel for SSL/TLS with authority
'localhost:5039 1'.

When I run IIS 7 using the LocalSystem account, or if I set the
clientCredentia lType="None", then it works just fine.

What is it that causes the clientCredentia lType="Certific ate" to require
elevated rights in IIS 7?
I don't think it is access to the certificate, since I can see the public
key in debug.
(client.ClientC redentials.Clie ntCertificate.C ertificate.Publ icKey.EncodedKe yValue.RawData seems to have a value).

I've got a windows service running as NetworkService on a WinXP Pro machine. Is there a way for it to find the Active Directory account of the logged on user? I don't mind switching the service to run as a "Domain Admin" if needed, but I *need* to find out the LDAP path for the user. Thanks!

Hi, I am trying to find the minimum security settings to allow a windows control embedded in IE have full trust. If I give the entire Intranet zone full trust, this works. However, this is very broad and gives the entire zone high privleges. I tried giving just the assembly full trust (using the full URL for the DLL), but this doesn't seem to work.

Hello All! I am writing a management application, which has to access remote machines registry via System.Diagnostics.EventLog.CreateEventSource . For each machine, I connect to, I create a DirectoryEntry and connect to that machine specifying credentials. That's becauase the running user does not has the right permissions . The application is written in C# and the action taken is done with threads from the threadpool.

Hi! I'm trying to get a WebService running (self hosting, without IIS) that uses SSL and loads the SSL key/certificate from a file (without using httpcfg.exe). I have a running service and netstat shows a listening https interface, but I can't access the service or the wsdl meta data. Any ideas, what's going wrong here (see code below)?

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
