Web application threats abound. If you use Web services with those applications, then there are other security

issues you need to be aware of. In fact, some say Web services, if not secured properly, can pose security threats that extend beyond those of traditional Web applications. Those weaknesses, they say, result from some Web services' greatest strengths. What are those weaknesses and how should you handle them? These articles, tips, books and other resources answer those questions and help you get a grip on how to protect and deploy secure Web services. If you know of an article, tip, tool or code sample that should be included, send me an email with the information and I'll add it. -- Michelle Davidson, Site Editor.
