SOA Security 1-2-3, Part 3: Test Your SOA Security
Examine a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) security implementation road map in this series. This paper - the last in a three-part series - provides rules for testing SOA security. Discover the tools and knowledge needed in one's organization to build the best security for the SOA. With one's team gathered and the new SOA developed, now is the time to test its security. Testing allows the user to see whether the vision matches the promise of success. Testing should occur in two phases: preproduction and production. Preproduction testing is the final step before any new application or hardware solution is allowed any outside access. This testing, designed to mimic the production environment, should push not just security but also load, process, and function.
