Crash course on Web Services Security

A session at ApacheCon North America 2013

Sunday 24th February, 2013

9:00am to 12:30pm (PST)

Service-oriented architecture (SOA) defines an architectural style which promotes developing applications in a highly decoupled manner with a well defined service interface. The application level boundaries and technology differences are removed with the encouraged support for heterogeneity. Connecting heterogeneous applications together without jeopardizing security is equally important. Conventional applications hard code it’s own security models - in other words - bake-in to the application it self. This doesn’t find to be the best fit in an SOA deployment.

Standards such as WS-Security, SAML, WS-Trust, WS-SecureConversation and WS-SecurityPolicy emerged over the years to define the ‘best-fit’ security model to an SOA deployment based on Web Services.

This session will cover basic concepts behind WS-Security standards and samples using Apache Axis2/Rampart.
