Only a handful -- probably no more than six -- are OASIS.  Almost the 
others are proprietary efforts led by IBM, Microsoft, and various 
partners (often BEA).  Look at http://www.w3.org/2001/03/WSWS-popa/, in 
particular paper 51 (the only one with no individual authors listed). 
They've been working on this stuff a *long* time.

At any rate, WS-Security is one of the few that's at OASIS.  It meets a 
real need: it says how to use XML DSIG, XML Encryption to secure SOAP 
messages, and how to convey identity and crypto key information, as well.
