   RE: [xml-dev] Web Services Best Practice (was: Interesting XML-DI ST-APP

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

A good article has appeared on XML.COM that takes all of the 
web service specs one at a time and shows how they fit into 
various vendor architectures.  I note several xml languages 
devoted to security issues.   Are any of these good candidates 
in your opinion and experience?  One way to improve shoddy 
practice is with a good standard. (oh... not that again..).

I would add that implementors must take appropriate measures to address
security factors, such as confidentiality and non-repudiation. One of my big
fears is that the web services "revolution" will bring us sensitive
transactions flying around the net in clear text without adequate
authentication. I know for a fact that the lack of understanding of security
concerns among most developers is leading to some truly frightening systems,
and the internet today is like a global piece of swiss cheese with gaping
security holes all over the place.
