Microsoft WSE 2.0

In the thick of the efforts focused on the launch of Univa Corporation, I missed the fact that Microsoft released WSE 2.0 in December.

Web Services Enhancements 2.0 SP2 for Microsoft® .NET (WSE) is a supported add-on to Microsoft Visual Studio® .NET and the Microsoft .NET Framework that enables developers to build secure Web services based on the latest Web services protocol specifications.

...

WSE 2.0 SP2 simplifies the development and deployment of secure Web services by enabling developers and administrators to more easily apply security policies on Web services running on the .NET Framework. Using WSE, Web services communication can be signed and encrypted using Kerberos tickets, X.509 certificates, username/password credentials, and other custom binary and XML-based security tokens. In addition, an enhanced security model provides a policy-driven foundation for securing Web services across trust domains. WSE also supports the ability to establish a trust-issuing service for retrieval and validation of security tokens, as well as the ability to establish more efficient long-running secure communication via secure conversations.

New support for message-oriented programming enables asynchronous communication for Web services that involve long-lived operations, batch processing, peer to peer programs, or event driven application models. Web services that leverage WSE can now be hosted in multiple environments including ASP.NET, standalone executables, NT Services and can communicate over alternative transports including HTTP or TCP.

WSE provides a foundation for building applications based on Web services
specifications published by Microsoft and industry partners including WS-Security (OASIS 2004 standard), WS-Policy, WS-SecurityPolicy, WS-Trust, WS-SecureConversation and WS-Addressing.
