Below is an example on how to accomplish two way SSL authentication in WCF using certificates with the added bonus of salesforce setup.

The prerequisites for securing the service is to have a signed certificate for both server and client. If there are more than one client, make sure you have a certificate for each client.

Place the cert file from the client to server in
Certificates(Local Computer) -> Personal -> Certificates
Certificates(Local Computer) -> Trusted People -> Certificates 
*Optional but this could be required
*Certificates(Local Computer) -> Trusted Root Certification Authorities -> Certificates  

For client, the CERTIFICATE_NAME referenced below is the client's certificate name. This is using the client's private key to sign the message during the transport.

Example configuration files:
- Server endpoint service config file
- Client config file with Certificate Authentication via Code
- Client config file with Certificate Authentication via config
- Salesforce client setup

Another place for the endpoing behavior is to have this setting: Location="CurrentUser"


Salesforce client setup

Picture
Go to Setup -> Administration Setup -> Certificate and Key Management

Picture
Create Self-Signed Certificate or CA-Signed Certificate. This is using the Self-Signed Screen.

Picture
Once the Certificate has been created, you can download the CERTIFICATE.cer file. 

 
Download the white paper OpenStack vs. Closed Clouds - The AOL Factor

Not sure if I agree with this article comparing Amazon's strategy to AOL's but this is a good article on why Open Standard is beneficial.  Many cloud applications should be vendor/standard agnostic. I think Amazon has a suite of great products that's easy to use with somewhat proven reliability. With more tools available for Amazon right now versus OpenStack, I'm leaning more to use Amazon.
