Lesson 1: Why Web services need security and trust
What are the new and different security problems Web services create? Unlike introductions to Web services that just list and explain the acronyms, this lesson will explain the role of XML, SOAP and the others in Web services security. We'll also discuss why Web services need security, why application integration, B2B integration and SOA need trust and how security relates to trust.

Lesson 3:XML Signature and XML Encryption for Web services
XML Signature safeguards the integrity and identity of XML messages. XML Encryption ensures the confidentiality of XML messages.

Lesson 5: WS-Security builds security into SOAP
This session provides a SOA model for active management of SOA and Web services initiatives within an organization. Passive SOA/Web services management will lead to an SOA model that is vendor-driven instead of a SOA that meets strategic and tactical business needs.
