  • Security is critical to web services. However, neither XML-RPC nor SOAP specifications make any explicit security or authentication requirements.
    There are three specific security issues with web services:
    Network Security
    If a client sends an XML request to a server, can we ensure that the communication remains confidential?
    Answer lies here:
    XML-RPC and SOAP run primarily on top of HTTP.
    HTTP has support for Secure Socketes Layer (SSL).
    Communication can be encrypted via SSL.
    SSL is a proven technology and widely deployed.
    A single web service may consist of a chain of applications. For example, one large service might tie together the services of three other applications. In this case, SSL is not adequate; the messages need to be encrypted at each node along the service path, and each node represents a potential weak link in the chain. Currently, there is no agreed-upon solution to this issue, but one promising solution is the W3C XML Encryption Standard. This standard provides a framework for encrypting and decrypting entire XML documents
