Free Report Details How to Secure .NET Web Services With New WS-Security Technology

VENICE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 30, 2006 -- Venice Consulting Group (VCG), a leading software development and consulting firm based in Venice, California, today released a new report titled "Secure Web Services with WS-Security" discussing emerging security concepts for building Web Services. The new security standard, dubbed WS-Security, is beginning to play an important role for all technology departments looking to make Web Services or Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) a part of their IT strategy.

The free report discusses:

--  The four different components of IT security
--  What the WS-Security Specification is, and how it protects Web
    Services in three ways
--  The difference between Direct and Brokered Authentication, with
    implementation options for both

The report is a compilation of information from the new book "Expert Service-Oriented Architecture in C#," released this year and published by Apress. WS-Security is a communications protocol developed to apply security to Web Services, and contains specifications on how integrity and confidentiality can be enforced on Web Services messaging.

"The recent growth in interest regarding Web Services and Service Oriented Architecture has led to a lot of hype and misinformation," says Mauricio Duran, co-writer of the report and Vice President at Venice Consulting Group. "The truth of the matter is that Web Services can fulfill the promised potential if there is proper strategy and implementation. Security must play a huge role throughout, and this report gives the reader an overview of what security considerations need to be taken account of and how WS-Security can help IT firms and departments meet their needs."
