C# Question

WCF service with protocol buffer, how the config file will look like

I worked on WCF before. But very new in protocol buffers. I went through its advantages and how to use it. Basically i want to plug in the protocol buffers into my existing 'WCF library'. So what changes should i make in my existing 'app.config' file to introduce or start working with protocol buffers?
My existing service Config file is as follows.

<configuration>
<appSettings>
<add key="aspnet:UseTaskFriendlySynchronizationContext" value="true" />
<add key="ClientSettingsProvider.ServiceUri" value="" />
</appSettings>
<system.web>
<compilation debug="true" />
<membership defaultProvider="XYZProvider">
<providers>
<add name="XYZshipProvider" type="System.Web.ClientServices.Providers.XYZProvider, System.Web.Extensions, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf35678563123ad364e35" serviceUri="" />
</providers>
</membership>
<roleManager defaultProvider="ClientRoleProvider" enabled="true">
<providers>
<add name="ClientRoleProvider" type="System.Web.ClientServices.Providers.ClientRoleProvider, System.Web.Extensions, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856564ad364e35" serviceUri="" cacheTimeout="86400" />
</providers>
</roleManager>
</system.web>
<!-- When deploying the service library project, the content of the config file must be added to the host's
app.config file. System.Configuration does not support config files for libraries. -->
<system.serviceModel>
<services>
<service name="wcfServiceXYZApplication.Service1">
<host>
<baseAddresses>
<add baseAddress="http://localhost:8733/Design_Time_Addresses/XYZApplication/Service1/" />
</baseAddresses>
</host>
<!-- Service Endpoints -->
<!-- Unless fully qualified, address is relative to base address supplied above -->
<endpoint address="" binding="basicHttpBinding" contract="XYZApplication.IService1" bindingConfiguration="basicHttp">
<!--
Upon deployment, the following identity element should be removed or replaced to reflect the
identity under which the deployed service runs. If removed, WCF will infer an appropriate identity
automatically.
-->
<identity>
<dns value="localhost" />
</identity>
</endpoint>
<!-- Metadata Endpoints -->
<!-- The Metadata Exchange endpoint is used by the service to describe itself to clients. -->
<!-- This endpoint does not use a secure binding and should be secured or removed before deployment -->
<endpoint address="mex" binding="mexHttpBinding" contract="IMetadataExchange" />
</service>
</services>
<behaviors>
<serviceBehaviors>
<behavior>
<!-- To avoid disclosing metadata information,
set the values below to false before deployment -->
<serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="True" httpsGetEnabled="True" />
<!-- To receive exception details in faults for debugging purposes,
set the value below to true. Set to false before deployment
to avoid disclosing exception information -->
<serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="False" />
</behavior>
</serviceBehaviors>
</behaviors>
<bindings>
<basicHttpBinding>
<binding name="basicHttp" maxReceivedMessageSize="100000" maxBufferSize="100000" maxBufferPoolSize="100000"/>
</basicHttpBinding>
</bindings>
</system.serviceModel>

</configuration>


Please help!
Thanks
