I dig around a little - I suspect the final step is you'd need to register (bind to port# desired) the generated/bought SSL certificate with "Windows" using HttpCfg.exe downloaded from http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms733791.aspx Then any incoming request to the configured port# will be protected by SSL? Is this how it will work? Thanks   REF Self hosted WCF service with SSL: http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/24027/SSL-with-Self-hosted-WCF-Service HttpCfg.exe from MSDN: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms733791.aspx wo80 Developer Jan 27, 2013 at 6:28 PM You need to use a SecureHttpListener with the server: var cert = new X509Certificate(@"path\to\certificate.cer"); var listener = HttpListener.Create(IPAddress.Loopback, 443, cert); server.Add(listener);  Also have a look at TekCERT. Will help you setup and manage your certificates. devvvy Jan 28, 2013 at 3:43 AM Great thanks I will give it a try tomorrow! devvvy Aug 12, 2013 at 10:33 AM wo80, it works.
