If your clients have certificates, consider using client certificate authentication

J.D. Meier, Jason Taylor, Prashant Bansode, Carlos Farre, Madhu Sundararajan, Steve Gregersen.

Client certificates can authenticate a client service account or multiple users to a WCF service. If you use a client certificate for each user, you can map each certificate to a Windows account.

The certificate to Windows account mapping feature is enabled in the service configuration file as follows:
<serviceCredentials>
    <clientCertificate>
        <authentication mapClientCertificateToWindowsAccount="true" />
    </clientCertificate>
</serviceCredentials>
