Securing Web services using basicauth authenticationWAS provides several different methods to secure your Web services. Extensible Markup Language (XML) digital signature is one of these methods. You might also secure your Web services using any of the following methods...
- XML digital signature
- XML encryption
- Basicauth authentication
- Identity assertion authentication
- Signature authentication
- Pluggable token
With the basicauth authentication method, the request sender generates a basicauth security token using a callback handler. The request receiver retrieves the basicauth security token from the SOAP message and validates it using a Java Authentication and Authorization Service (JAAS) login module. Trust is established using user name and password validation. To use basicauth authentication to secure Web services, complete the following tasks...
- Secure the client for basicauth authentication.
- Configure the client for basicauth authentication: Specifying the method
- Configure the client for basicauth authentication: Collecting the authentication information
- Secure the server for basicauth authentication.
- Configure the server to handle basicauth authentication
- Configure the server to validate basicauth authentication information
After completing these steps, you have secured your Web services using basicauth authentication.
