When using the WS-Security in WCF the default behavior is to both sign and encrypt the SOAP request but sometimes the enncryption of SOAP request is not required by the destination web service to disable the encyption you can use this behavior.
I came across a requirement where destination service doe's need the encrypted SOAP request but it must be signed.
- Build the code and install the assembly WCF.Behavior.SignSoapRequest.dll to GAC.
- Update the machine.config and add the following element to section
<add name="SignSoapRequestBehavior" type="WCF.Behavior.SignSoapRequest.SignSoapRequestBehaviorExtensionElement, WCF.Behavior.SignSoapRequest, Version=188.8.131.52, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=ba7175b2b6205a29" />
Note: Update the PublicKeyToken as per the key used to create the strong name for the assembly.
