Securing Web Services with Java

This chapter of the book Building Web Services with Java examines security basics, Web services-specific security, trust, security policies, enterprise security, authorization, security services and J2EE security.

Building Web Services with Java: Making Sense of XML, SOAP, WSDL, and UDDI, 2nd Edition
Building Web Services with SOAP, XML, and UDDI assumes proficiency with Java and with distributed computing tools. Throughout the book, examples will be presented using Java and the Apache SOAP platform, although a set of sidebars will address .NET development, which Microsoft developers will use to deploy Web services. The book uses progressive disclosure to present an increasingly complex project as it moves through its development cycle. The final section of the book presents linking the completed project with other systems built in J2EE and .NET.

Chapter 9: Securing Web Services
