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.
