Semantic Web Services (SWS) are worn by large number of companies as they render products and services to customers and business partners throughout the Internet and corporate extranets. The security necessities for these service providers are of supreme importance. Platform-based security services are provided by operating system. Internet Information Services can be used to offer point-to-point business solutions.
