XI 3.0 Webservices and security


Just wondering if anyone knows if its possible to lock down outbound xi interfaces that have been published as wsdl's to specific calling XI users/business systems?

So in the real world, I'd like to restrict bus system x so it may only call an exposed web service (XI outbound interfaces) a,b,c but not d.

Any thoughts?

    Vordel's XML Gateway product is used for this purpose. Here is some information about a customer who is managing access to XI outbound interfaces based the user and business system which are calling them:


    Südzucker chose VordelSecure to provide security and management for its XML-based connections to its logistics partners. This was key to the successful enhancement of the company¬ís business intelligence reporting system based on linking its internal SAP platform to the tracking systems of its freight-forwarders, using SAP Exchange Infrastructure. As well as protecting Südzucker¬ís SAP systems from malicious or unauthorized data, VordelSecure also met the requirement to deliver a full transactional audit log and display data traffic on a real-time monitoring console.
