Supported Authentication Mechanisms

This attribute specifies the authentication methods supported by the Discovery Service. These security mechanisms refer to the way a web service consumer authenticates to the web service provider or provides message-level security. By default, all available methods that the service instance supports are selected. If an authentication method is not selected, and a web services consumer sends a request using that method, the request is rejected. See To Configure a Service Description.
