Quickly learn how to build a secure Web services system using available programming tools, models, and specifications

Web services promise to simplify business programming and to improve interoperability, but they won't deliver on these promises without effective security. Written by the leading security experts in the field, this innovative book clearly shows how to build a real-world, secure Web services system. Using theory, examples, and practical advice, the authors examine each of the security technologies used for providing secure Web services, emphasizing how security works with XML and SOAP. And with the help of two case studies, you'll also learn how to effectively plan and deploy a secure Web services system for both J2EE and .NET.

This book will show you how to build a secure Web services system today and anticipate the security systems of tomorrow. The authors:

  • Discuss the measures that can be used to secure XML and SOAP messages
  • Demonstrate ways to analyze and address Web services security needs
  • Describe WS-Security and SAML, new security specifications that are directed at securing user data and credentials using XML
  • Cover the different ways to create a secure .NET Web service
  • Explain how to secure Web services when the target Web service is a J2EE application server

The companion Web site contains

  • The complete source code from the book
  • Additional examples and product information
