If you are looking for a secure (encryption with digital signature) solution
in addition to the ability to send XML and any other type of data take a
look at IETF's EDIINT draft specification "HTTP Transport for Secure EDI"


Here's an excerpt from the abstract:

"   This document describes how to exchange structured business data
   securely using HTTP transport for EDIFACT, X12, XML or other
   used for business to business data interchange. The data is packaged
   using standard MIME content-types. Authentication and privacy are
   obtained by using CMS (S/MIME) or OpenPGP security body
   parts. Authenticated acknowledgements make use of multipart/signed
   replies to the HTTP POST requests."
