Hello Java-ranchers,

Im using JAX-WS RI and Glassfish, and I have two distributed web services.
I need the client to be authenticated with each web service and then use the first services and then the second, combine the result and show it.
I need both web services to be secured.

I submitted this same post about a week ago and I received useful answers advising me that that's what WS-Security is all about

Thank you guys.

The problem is that my PM still wants me to do the authentication without implementing WS-Security first.

I just want to know if there is a way to do that without WS-Security.

Thank you very much for your advises

Hi!
Have you considered SSL with mutual authentication?
This may be too much if you do not have any requirements regarding confidentiality.
Best wishes!

Here's an example, http://spnego.sourceforge.net/protected_soap_service.html, that uses a custom soap client to connect to a protected soap web service.
