Hi All,

I am new to Webservices. We have created Soap Based Webservices using @Webservice annotations. Firstly, we created the XSD and then converted the XSD to Java POJOs using JAXB. Now, we want to secure our webservices, please let me know the approach to secure the webservices.

Thanks in Advance.

That depends on what exactly you mean by "secure the webservices". The WS-Security standard -which is implemented by all major SOAP stacks- helps with authentication, encryption and signing. There are, of course, lots more facets to security - you should start with a risk analysis to identify those that you need to address.

In Java, there are approaches and multiple meaning of Security ... believe me .. there is transport layer security [ using SSL] , message level security [ using MTOM] and then we have WS-standards.
before starting any thing, make sure that you should lay down your security clearly and in detailed manner. More detailed and clear requirements shall be, easier shall be the development work.

That's why I always want Oracle to have one more certification related to Security

Happy learning !!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
