IBM: First software for secure web services

IBM announced this morning its plans to deliver new software to support the latest web services security standards.

The new software — IBM’s WebSphere software for managing high-volume business transactions and integrating key business applications — and IBM’s Tivoli software — enabling the secure interaction of business applications — will support key industry standards for Web Services security, such as the WS-Security specification, which IBM co-authored.

As a result, businesses will now be able to develop Web Services applications that are secured beyond the firewall — meaning they can facilitate secure transactions with partners in their supply chain, regardless of the Web services or security technologies used by other partners.
