Web services (WS) provide a simple, standardized way to connect applications over the Internet, however they require management of security and other run-time operations to work effectively. Oracle Web Services Manager is a software solution for managing the operations of web services and the interactions between these services.
This book explains the business reasons why web services security is required and gives an architectural overview of WS Security for an enterprise. It then provides details about the Oracle Web Service Manager product and how it can be leveraged to address the key security issues of Confidentiality, Integrity, Authentication, and Authorization. Whilst addressing these key issues, the book describes them fully with examples. It ends with a couple of unique features: one is the various options available for a successful deployment and the other is an explanation, in depth, of how the security components work.
