Securing Communications in Web Services

Malla Simhachalam Marina Sum

Malla Simhachalam and Marina Sum have written an excellent tutorial on securing web services using NetBeans 5.5 and Sun Java System Access Manager.

The tutorial walks through a familiar stock ticker sample, showing how anonymous users get delayed stock price data while authenticated users have access to real-time prices. Malla and Marina step through the message exchange and explain how it is secured with SAML assertions, so this is a great read if you are looking at identity-enabling web services.
