That depends on your definition of "complete" - everyone has his own concept of how much security is sufficient.

For WS, there is the WS-Security standard, for which an open source implementation is available in the form of WSS4J. WS-Security addresses authentication (by username/password and client certificates), as well as encryption. You can find links to the standard and the software in the WS FAQ.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
