"Define Web Service" - Security Issues

Hello all,

I have successfully defined a Web service with the wizard in ID. So I already have my WSDL file.

Now, I need to use this WSDL file from a Web Application that exposed to all public internet.

Now my question is, how is security managed for this web service? I mean, if the web service is exposed to any user of the web application in the internet, how can I assure that, the information in the WSDL file will not be used to access the XI Server with out authorization?

Who should be in charge of the security, the web application? the web service? or xi?

Thanks,

Felipe

      If you are using the SOAP Adapter for receiving the information it provides the features like

      1. HTTP without Client Authentication

      2. HTTP with Client Authentication

      Even you can select Security Prameters like

      1. Web Service Security

      2. S/MIME

      If you configure all this then which other kind of security you are looking for.
