Summary

The security requirements for business integration are the same as that for any enterprise system: authentication, access control, integrity and privacy, and single sign on. WebSphere Process Server is built on WebSphere Application Server, which supports all these requirements. WebSphere Process Server is used in environments characterized by Web service and SOAP communication. Asynchronous messaging and WS-Security can address security in such an environment. This article also discusses securing the Service Integration Bus, which is important to the overall security of your environment.
