Web Service Security

Using the WS-Security you can make your web service communications more secure by using encryption, signing in addition to authentication and authorization. SOAP Header items can be encrypted using Username (user, passoword), Keberos or X.509 certificates. Electronic signatures are created using X.509 or Username tokens.

I have a wireless encryption software site/blog. It pretty much covers Web Service Security related stuff.
