We use certificates to provide security at transport layer. How to provide security to the payload in soap and REST based services. Kindly share your views.

Hi Anil,

which wM version are you referring to?

Did you check the “Working with Designer”, “WebService Development Help” and “IS Administrators Guide” if there are any informations regarding security configurations?

Hi Anil,

To provide security in SOAP based services at message level (to payload) you use something called Policies. There are several out-of-the-box policies available in IS and you can go to the WSD → Policy tab and Attach Policy as per business requirements.

You will find more on this in the Web Services Developers Guide → Securing Webservices (WS-Security) section.

Thanks,
Arpitha
