Hi all,

I developped a webService with Apache axis. It works fine.
Is it possible to implement a sytem of security (key, certifcat) in order to protect use of my differents methods. For example I would like one client "A" use my method getHello and others "B","C" etc can't use my method.

I don't know anything about security with webservice if there is on exists.

Can you help me in sharing your experience with me.

Thanks in advance.

The technology standard you want is called WS-Security, and it covers authentication and encryption, amongst other things. Always one to toot my own horn, I'll refer you to an article I wrote for the JavaRanch Journal for the authentication part, which is what you seem to need.
