    Remember both the adapter uses transport protocol  http only and only difference between them is in only message protocol

      SOAP adapter uses the message protocol  as "Soap" i.e  format with envelope , header and body. So with respect to authentication both the adapters does the same work. In other words Soap adapter without envelope is equivalent to same message format as that of http message format. 

    With respect to authentication both does the same and you can use any of them.

    Hi Peter,

    In terms of authentication, they both are the same.

    Please go through the threads below which explains SOAP and HTTP in detail.
