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.
