This session will discuss the interoperability challenges presented by current Web services security standards and the work of the WS-I Basic Security Profile. The session will highlight typical Web services security threats and countermeasures and the related design goals, usage conventions, and conformance testing of the soon-to-be-released Basic Security Profile.
