CyberSource announced today “the availability of the first payment solution based on web services architecture, including payment-grade transaction security.”
CyberSource is the first payment services provider to offer the full spectrum of web services compliant clients. These clients support the SOAP communications protocol, XML document format, and WS Security data signature specifications to provide the level of security required for payment transactions. With CyberSource support of Web Services standards, including transaction security, developers can more quickly implement payment functionality. By accessing the CyberSource Web Services Development Language from a CyberSource or a UDDI resource, developers will be able to enable payment functionality via most major toolkits that support SOAP, such as Microsoft’s Visual Studio.net, Apache Project’s Axis, and any of the IBM developer kits, such as Emerging Technologies Toolkit.
