On the client side, store the client identification (e.g: username&Password) in the custom message headers by using OperationContext.Current.OutgoingMessageHeaders property. and on the server side, you can get this custom message header by using OperationContext.Current.IncomingMessageHeaders
property. then you can validate the client identification before calling WCF service methods. For more about this, Please check this article to get help.
You can also use Soapheader to store your username and password in the request soap message and then on the on the server side, you can extract this Soapheader value using messageInspector, for more about this, check this article.
