Mastering Web Services Security

Bert Hartman, Donald J. Flinn
Konstantine Beznosov, Shirley Kawamoto

“A much needed source for those building secure, next generation Web Services.”
Michael Howard
Senior Program Manager, Security Engineering, Microsoft Corp.

“Without strong security, Web Services will, in the end, have but little impact on business.
Mastering Web Services Security provides important practical guidance and theory
for building secure services now and preparing for future secure Web Services standards.”
Randy Heffner
VP & Research Leader, Giga Information Group

“The authors manage to cover an impressive collection of WS security topics in a nononsense,
how-to style, while zeroing in on important techniques and critical points
with specific source code examples and diagrams.”
Max Levchin
co-founder, PayPal, Inc

“Bret Hartman and his fellow authors have set the standard for Web Services security
books with Mastering Web Services Security. Their coverage is both broad and deep, discussing
the range of security issues facing companies who are implementing Web Services,
while delving into the difficult details of cryptography and application security
infrastructures in a clear, understandable manner. Their balanced coverage of security
on both the .NET and J2EE platforms is especially valuable, especially considering the
solid chapters on interoperability, security administration, and building secure Web
Services architectures. I recommend this book for all IT managers, architects, and
enterprise security professionals who need a real understanding of how to build and
manage secure Service-oriented architectures.”
Jason Bloomberg
Senior Analyst, ZapThink LLC

.“Web services are the next wave of business integration, with one major hurdle in their
way: security. This comprehensive explanation of the state of the art in web services
security will help remove that hurdle. Readers will learn both about the risks and the
solutions. Not just a user’s guide, this book explains the architectural issues in distributed
systems, thus motivating the solutions. There’s an alphabet soup of evolving
standards, and this volume gives up to the minute coverage of all of them, including
XML Signature, SAML, and WS-Security. Consistent examples that run through the
book make it easy to apply the ideas to real systems. Important reading for anyone
involved in web services.”
Jeremy Epstein
Director of Product Security, webMethods Inc.

“In Mastering Web Services Security the authors provide us with an excellent technical
and historical synopsis of the web services security environment and its historical relationship
to other distributed computing environments. The book blends a presentation
of the challenges of securing web services with descriptions of the security technologies
developed to address these challenges. The major strength of the book is that it
provides detailed examples of the use of these technologies to develop and deploy
secure web services on the existing web services platforms. The book is also forward
looking and presents for the reader a road map of the activities that will shape the
future of web services security.”
