SECURING XML WEB SERVICES – A PLUG & PLAY APPROACH

Cristian Donciulescu, Luminita Vasiu

Abstract

XML Web Services have the potential of becoming the underlying technology on which the future of the Internet is built. However, several hurdles stand in the way before that can happen. Security issues, for one, are slowing down the rate at which industry adopts the use of Web Services and in spite of the coordinated efforts made to correct those problems, the actual results can be years away. This paper is aimed at providing a more immediate solution for Web Services in the form of an architectural design, not only regarding security aspects, but rather enabling a wider range of e-commerce supporting features which are of utmost importance for a wide acceptance of this technology within the industry.
