Securing Web services using identity assertion 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 identity assertion authentication method, the security token generates a <wsee:Username Token> element that contains a <wsse:Username> element. On the request sender side, a callback handler is invoked to generate the security token. On the request receiver side, the security token is validated. Unlike basicauth authentication, trust is established through the use of a security token rather than through user name and password validation. To use identity assertion authentication to secure Web services, complete the following tasks...
- Secure the client for identity assertion authentication.
- Configure the client for identity assertion authentication: Specifying the method.
- Configure the client for identity assertion authentication: Collecting the authentication information.
- Secure the server for identity assertion authentication.
- Configure the server to handle identity assertion authentication.
- Configure the server to validate identity assertion authentication information.
After completing these steps, you have secured your Web services using identity assertion authentication.
