Hi,

Most of the examples and tutorials regarding WS-Security that uses Username Token is Transport-Level Type of Security.

I would just like to know if the UserName Token is for Transport-level Security Only?


Thanks.

I think you're confused; WS-Security provides message-level security, not transport-level security.

UserName token is used to authenticate SOAP message. User name token will be part of SOAP message and has noting to do with transport level security.
