In this paper, the authors examine how security applies to Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). Before they discuss security for SOA, let's take a step back and examine what SOA is. SOA is an architectural approach which involves applications being exposed as "Services". Originally, services in SOA were associated with a stack of technologies which included SOAP, WSDL, and UDDI. This paper addresses the defects of traditional enterprise application integration by combining service oriented-architecture and web service technology.
