Westbridge Technology Announces Support for WS-Security with New XMS 2.5 Release

Westbridge Technology Announces Support for WS-Security with New XMS 2.5 Release

(March 17, 2003) - Westbridge has released the latest version of its flagship XML Message Server (XMS). Westbridge XMS 2.5 adds support for WS-Security 1.0, HTTP-based authentication, and additional customer-requested features for managing large and complex environments.

The Westbridge XMS 2.5 adds support for managing the large and complex environments many early adopters of Web services are beginning to experience. Based on customer feedback, Westbridge enabled Rule Groups functionality to create policy groupings according to the customer's own business constructs. This capability enables administrators to easily add new Web services that automatically inherit the proper policies. Customers can create sets of rules for malicious attacks, data privacy, quality of service, and compliance for easier manageability. Coupled with new rule collision detectors, Westbridge provides the most tools to manage enterprise-wide and cross-enterprise XML networks.

When adding, for example, a new Web service to the network, administrators need just associate it to the appropriate rule groups to inherit all of the appropriate rules. Another customer-requested requirement was the ability to finely control publishing of WSDL files. With the new WSDL Aggregation capabilities, customers have complete flexibility to publish whatever types of XML and Web services interfaces they desire. These capabilities reduce the cost of ongoing management and administration, particularly as the Web service network increases in complexity.

WS-Security 1.0 and HTTP-based authentication add to the list of standards that Westbridge supports, including: XML, SOAP, WSDL, HTTP, HTTPS, XML Signature, signatures (RSA-SHA1, DSA SHA1), XML Encryption, encryption (RSA Keys, 3DES, AES, 128/192/256 bit keys), SAML, LDAP, Active Directory, XKMS, OCSP 2.01, PKI Infrastructure (including PKCS#7, #10, #11, #12), CRL, X.509 Certificates, XML Schema 1.0, XPath 1.0, XSLT, as well as SNMP and SMTP for alerting. Westbridge also supports interoperability among different security, transport, and data schemes
