WSE, WSTK, and WS Security

Posted by Kirby Turner on April 2, 2003

I spent the morning taking a deeper look at WS Security using Microsoft’s WSE and IBM WSTK. Specifically I wanted to learn more about encrypting a SOAP message, and I have to say I am not only impressed with the standard but with the implementations from both Microsoft and IBM. Once I resolved issues around my X.509 certificate, I was able to play. I found it very easy to sign and encrypt my SOAP messages. And on initial glance, it looks like interop between the two toolkits works well.

If I have more time, I hope to play with WS Security more. It’s an interesting spec. Unfortunately it looks like I am about to spend the next few weeks learning SharePoint v2.0, something I’m not all to happy about. Not that it is a bad product. It actually looks good, but I’m just not interested in it.
