Whitepaper: Securing Web Services With SOAP Security Proxies

by PrismTechJan 01, 2008

This paper from PrismTech summarizes the most important security model for SOAP, WS-Security, and its related specifications. The company explores the advantages of one particular approach to implementing Web Services security, security proxies, and compares this approach to library-based approaches. Although in principle independent of any particular messaging protocol, Web Services are primarily accessed using SOAP over HTTP in practice. As SOAP provides no message security at all, other ways of securing messages are necessary.
