  1. Security Issues: Authentication and Encryption (2 messages)

    When using Web Services, how to authenticate users and make the XML messages confidential? We need to implement very strong security policies.
  2. Check out Web services security. Recently Sun has released a new Java Web services Developer Pack which has support for WS-Secuirty.

    Some of the appserver vendors also have support for this spec.

    WS-security is an option, but you can always use https for the Encryption and use certificates for Authentication of your users.

    This is wellknown and is secure.
