Java Track - Web Services End-To-End Security On J2EE: Gaps And Proposed Solutions

Signing, SOAP Message Encryption, Request/Receive Security Tokens

Wednesday, February 16, 2005 10:00 A.M. - 9:50 A.M.

Even though WS-* security standards (WS-Security, WS-Trust, WSSecureConversation, WS-Policy, etc.) are sufficiently prescriptive on specific security subjects like signing, SOAP message encryption, request/receive security tokens, they do not provide end-to-end security protocol that Web services can depend on to meet their security requirements. The most significant gap is identity propagation from a Web service into a J2EE container. Current JAX-RPC specification or JSR 109 does not cover this issue. This presentation identifies the gaps and discusses the approaches to plug these gaps. It also discusses implementation of a solution for identity propagation from client to Web service and from Web service to J2EE container.

Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...
