    The hype about XML Web Services has reached fever pitch. XML Web Services is poised to revolutionize IT architecture much like mainframe computing and client-server did years ago. However, the number one barrier to XML Web Service adoption among enterprises is security – and with good reason. Exposing business critical functions in complex, heterogeneous networks will result in whole new classes of security compromises.

    Lack of standards for authentication, authorization, encryption and non-repudiation are all well understood derivatives of current Web security issues. But, there are other major security problems that will occur that are less understood. Topics discussed will include: (1) security policies across systems; (2) end-to-end security; (3) security administration; (4) organizational requirements; (5) new forms of malicious attack.

    Presented by Kerry Champion, a veteran of the security and messaging industries, this event is designed to provide you with practical, actionable, best practice information to help you learn what all the critical issues are and to help you make decisions about deploying XML Web Services. You will leave this seminar with:

    • An in-depth understanding of the important security issues related to XML Web Services
    • Tactics and best practices for securing XML web services
    • An understanding of the security trends that face enterprises
    • Knowledge on what the security risks and solutions are for deploying XML Web Services
