Web Services Security, or to be more precise, SOAP message security, identifies and provides solutions for general computer security threats as well as threats unique to Web services.

WSO2 Carbon supports WS Security, WS-Policy and WS-Security Policy specifications. These specifications define a behavioral model for Web services. A requirement for one Web service may not be valid for another. Thus, defining service-specific requirements might be necessary.

The WSO2 SOA platform provides important security features to your service. By default the security features are disabled.

The following actions are available:

Enabling Security Features

Understanding the exact security requirements should be the first step you should take when planning to secure Web services. For example, consider what security aspects are important to your service, whether it is the integrity, confidentiality, or both.
