Web services security spec moves toward approval

Wednesday, 28 January 2004, 12:54 PM EST

WS-Security, a widely supported proposal for securing Web services, could become an official OASIS standard by March.

OASIS in mid-February anticipates a full-membership vote on the WS-Security specification, which is intended to provide critical security for Web services. If approved during a 30-day voting period, WS-Security becomes an OASIS standard.

The OASIS Web Services Security Technical Committee earlier this month approved a set of documents pertaining to the specification, which is officially referred to as Web Services Security: SOAP Message Security 1.0. The specification, which was subjected to a public review as well, describes enhancements to SOAP messaging to provide for message integrity and confidentiality, according to OASIS.
