I have a Windows Forms application that interacts with a WCF service published on IIS. I want the WCF service to use the existing Userprofiles in Commerce Server to authenticate users. The windows app will be installed on client machines possibly across
different countries. I would like to know the best way to authenticate and authorize calls to the service. One option I have is to pass user credentials with every service request. I would like to know if there are any other robust techniques for this scenario.
Any help would be appreciated.

You can find this article useful which implements authentication by applying message level security using custom username - password authentication with x509 certificate:
WCF Service with custom username password authentication
Another alternative is to
Securing WCF with Forms Authentication
Hope it helps./.
