How do I secure the WCF services used for the Silverlight Reporting control? I couldn't find anything in the documentation other than enabling SSL, so I am unsure why anyone who knows the URL can't access the WCF services?

Hi jturpen,

The Telerik Report WCF service is usually hosted in an ASP.NET application. That said one can access the service (.svc) as much as he/she can access any other resource of the web site. So securing the web application is good enough to protect Telerik Report WCF service from unauthorized access.

For additional information please see Securing ASP.NET Web Sites and WCF Security MSDN articles or just google for wcf security for various other articles on the topic.
