Where can I find material to implement SOAP over SSL?
Many SOAP implementations support HTTPS as a transport. The specifics of using HTTPS vary slightly between implementations. See your product's documentation. For example:
- Apache SOAP (click on Installation, then scroll down until you find SSL).
- The Mind Electric GLUE (click on Security)
- IONA XMLBus (chapter 12)
For Java implementations, the hardest part is setting up Java security. JDK 1.3 doesn't include native support for SSL, so you need to install and configure JCE and JSSE.
After searching through Microsoft's site, I found this article.
