Hey there,
I'm still new to SOAP, but I'm wondering if there are security issues when using SOAP that you may not have with Java or CORBA (using Java). If there are, are there any work arounds?
Thx
J

You acn ofcourse use SSL. also there are specs for Digital Soap. I think SOAP should be as secure as anything else.

Thanks for the link.
It says one should use SSL in combination with Digital Certificates to counter all possible security threats. SSL & Digital Certificates are widely used for on-line transactions and many commercial sites are running for long.
Then why do we see so much focus on security issue in the case of SOAP ? The transactions are still the same except that data is sent in text format (which can always be ciphered) over the chosen transport protocol (Http, FTP, SMTP etc).
Can somebody throw some light on this topic ?

Microsoft has proposed a bunch of extensions to SOAP to handle various aspects of security. See:

I'm thinking about a new battle cry. Maybe "Not in the face! Not in the face!" Any thoughts tiny ad?
