View web services server deployment descriptor

Use this page to view the server deployment descriptor settings.

This console page applies only to Java API for XML-based RPC (JAX-RPC) applications.

Before beginning this task, the web services application must be installed.

By completing this task, we can gather information that enables us to maintain or configure binding information. After the web services application is installed, we can view the web services deployment descriptors. To view this console page:

  1. Click Applications > Application Types > WebSphere enterprise applications > application_name.

  2. Under Modules, click Manage modules > URI_name.

  3. Under Web Services Properties, click View web services server deployment descriptor.

WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment has three levels of bindings: application-level, server-level, and cell-level. The information in the following implementation descriptions indicate how to configure the application-level bindings. To configure the server-level bindings, which are the defaults...

  1. Click Servers > Server Types > WebSphere application servers > server_name.

  2. Under Security, click JAX-WS and JAX-RPC security runtime.

    In a mixed node cell with a server using WebSphere Application Server version 6.1 or earlier, click Web services: Default bindings for Web Services Security.

To configure the cell-level bindings, click Security > JAX-WS and JAX-RPC security runtime.

  3. Under Additional properties, click Key locators.


Request decryption

If the confidentiality constraints (encryption) are specified, verify that the encryption information is defined.

To configure the encryption information parameters...

  1. Click Applications > Application Types > WebSphere enterprise applications > application_name.

  2. Under Modules, click Manage modules > URI_name.

  3. Under Web Services Security properties, click Web services: Server security bindings.

  4. Under Request receiver binding, click Edit > Encryption information.

To configure the key locators...

  1. Click Servers > Server Types > WebSphere application servers > server_name.

  2. Under Security, click JAX-WS and JAX-RPC security runtime.

    In a mixed node cell with a server using WebSphere Application Server version 6.1 or earlier, click Web services: Default bindings for Web Services Security.

  3. Under Additional properties, click Key locators.


Basic authentication

If BasicAuth authentication is configured as the required security token, specify the callback handler in the binding file to collect the basic authentication data. The following list contains callback support implementations:

com.ibm.wsspi.wssecurity.auth.callback.GuiPromptCallbackHandler

The implementation prompts for BasicAuth information (user name and password) in an interface panel.

com.ibm.wsspi.wssecurity.auth.callback.NonPromptCallbackHandler

This implementation reads the BasicAuth information from the binding file.

com.ibm.wsspi.wssecurity.auth.callback.StdPromptCallbackHandler

This implementation prompts for a user name and password using the standard in (stdin) prompt.

To configure the login mapping information...

  1. Click Servers > Server Types > WebSphere application servers > server_name.

  2. Under Security, click JAX-WS and JAX-RPC security runtime.

    In a mixed node cell with a server using WebSphere Application Server version 6.1 or earlier, click Web services: Default bindings for Web Services Security.

  3. Under Additional properties, click Login mappings.


Identity (ID) assertion authentication with the BasicAuth TrustMode

Configure a login binding in the bindings file with a com.ibm.wsspi.wssecurity.auth.callback.NonPromptCallbackHandler implementation. Specify a user name and password for basic authentication that a TrustedIDEvaluator on a downstream server trusts.

To configure the login mapping information...

  1. Click Servers > Server Types > WebSphere application servers > server_name.

  2. Under Security, click JAX-WS and JAX-RPC security runtime.

    In a mixed node cell with a server using WebSphere Application Server version 6.1 or earlier, click Web services: Default bindings for Web Services Security.

  3. Under Additional properties, click Login mappings.


Identity (ID) assertion authentication with the signature TrustMode

Configure the signing information in the bindings file with a signing key that points to a key locator. The key locator contains the X.509 certificate that is trusted by the downstream server.

To configure the login mapping information...

  1. Click Servers > Server Types > WebSphere application servers > server_name.

  2. Under Security, click JAX-WS and JAX-RPC security runtime.

    In a mixed node cell with a server using WebSphere Application Server version 6.1 or earlier, click Web services: Default bindings for Web Services Security.

  3. Under Additional properties, click Login mappings.

The JAAS uses WSLogin as the name of the login configuration. To configure JAAS...

  1. Click Security > Global security > Authentication, click Java Authentication and Authorization Service > Application logins.

The value of the <TrustedIDEvaluatorRef> tag in the binding must match the value of the <TrustedIDEvaluator> name.

To configure the trusted ID evaluators...

  1. Click Servers > Server Types > WebSphere application servers > server_name.

  2. Under Security, click JAX-WS and JAX-RPC security runtime.

    In a mixed node cell with a server using WebSphere Application Server version 6.1 or earlier, click Web services: Default bindings for Web Services Security.

  3. Under Additional properties, click Trusted ID evaluators.
