Securing Java Web Services

Secure Java Web Services Development

The Securing Java Web Services training course provides Java developers with the knowledge needed to develop secure Web services.

The course emphasizes hands-on experimentation with students spending roughly half of the classroom time solving specific security problems. The bulk of the course is spent working with JAX-RPC web services: adding WS-Security headers, signing and encrypting message content, and passing SAML assertions among various parties to a messaging scenario.
