WS-I posts final version of the Basic Security Profile 1.0
The Web Services Interoperability Organization (WS-I) has published the final version of the Basic Security Profile 1.0
In my opinion, WS-I profiles are a key part of achieving interoperability between Web Services implementations. If providers of tools (that people use to build Web Services) and runtimes (that people use to deploy Web Services) conform to and help people build, WS-I compliant Web Services, then this greatly enhances the likelihood that different Web Services will work well together.
The Basic Security Pofile 1.0 , which builds upon the WS-I Basic Profile (1.0 and 1.1) and and the Simple SOAP Binding Profile 1.0 , makes recommendations on what to use (and what not to use) when working with various security standards while building secure Web Services.
I would like to congratulate all those involved in getting this done.
