« Guest lecture on SOA, Web Services and I... | Main | They are no longer called "Stove-Pipes".... »

The Microsoft patterns & practices web services security guide is now online. A PDF format version is also available.

This guide will help you quickly make the most appropriate security decisions in the context of your Web service's requirements while providing the rationale and education for each option. A scenario-driven approach is provided to demonstrate situations where different security patterns are successful. The guide also combines a series of decision matrices to assist you in applying your own criteria to use the Web service security patterns to meet the requirements of your environment.

This document provides a scenario and patterns based approach to web services security. As such the information transcends platforms. I was one of the external reviewers of this book and found it to be a VERY welcome product from the PAG!
