Security is important for any distributed computing environment. For Web Services, security is even more of a challenge because of the unique characteristics of Web Services applications. In this seminar, delegates examine the various Web Services security schemes being designed and implemented by the industry and in the Business community, where security is always a top priority.
This seminar explains how to implement secure Web Services and includes coverage of trust, confidentiality, cryptography, authentication, authorization, and Kerberos. You will also find details on Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), XML Key Management Specification (XKMS), XML Encryption, Hypertext Transfer Protocol-Reliability (HTTP-R) and more.
It provides delegates with up-to-the-minute information on tools, standards, vendor initiatives, and hands-on solutions to understanding and implementing secure Web Services. Practical examples are used throughout the seminar to present real-world solutions to Web security issues.
