[Mono-list] WCF certificate security with Mono

I'm trying to migrate an existing application to Mono (v2.10.2).
Therefore I created a test WCF service with BasicHttpBinding and message
security. The client works perfectly with .NET, but when running with
Mono it fails.
The client factory is instantiated as follows:
var certificate= new X509Certificate2("certificate.pfx", "password");
var binding= new BasicHttpBinding();
binding.Security.Mode = BasicHttpSecurityMode.Message;
binding.Security.Message.ClientCredentialType = BasicHttpMessageCredentialType.Certificate;
var epa= new EndpointAddress(
var factory= new ChannelFactory<IService1>(binding, epa);
factory.Credentials.ServiceCertificate.DefaultCertificate = certificate;
factory.Credentials.ServiceCertificate.Authentication.CertificateValidationMode = X509CertificateValidationMode.None;
factory.Credentials.ServiceCertificate.Authentication.RevocationMode = X509RevocationMode.NoCheck;
factory.Credentials.ClientCertificate.Certificate = certificate;
var client= factory.CreateChannel();
In Mono the application fails within CreateChannel throwing the exception:
System.InvalidOperationException: The binding does not support any
of the channel types that the contract 'IService1' allows.
I debugged into the Mono source code and found out that the problem is
that AsymmetricSecurityBindingElement.InitiatorTokenParameter == null.
I'm new to Mono, maybe you could point me to a documentation/tutorial
which covers this topic.
