That's what the SOAP Header element is for, to provide for just such a
mechanism, in a transport neutral way.  For a simple example, put your PGP
public key in the header element of your request, and I'll return an encrypted
response in the body.  Same goes for authentication.  I don't see why the
envelope has to be encrypted, just the contents.

Yes, it's possible to send SOAP over an encrypted circuit such as SSL, but SOAP
is supposed to be transport agnostic. How would the encryption be handled over
SMTP, where there is no SSL?
