XML Security Suite
XML Security Suite:
XML Security Suite adds W3C-defined security features such as digital signature, encryption, and access control to Web service and XML applications. Security has always been a challenge for Web service developers, because Web services are transporting text over standard protocols that don’t support advanced security features by themselves. The XML Security Suite includes support for the W3C XML-Signature Syntax and Processing and XML Encryption Syntax and Processing Recommendations. There is also support for XML Access Control functionality, partly supported by the W3C Canonical XML Version 1.0 Working Draft. The free XML Security Suite download includes a .jar file containing supporting classes and a number of examples of the XML Security Suite code in use.
