Securing a Web Service Sync RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have sync currently working via a web service and before I think about putting this into production I need to secure the web service.


    There seems lots of info on Extending the Soap Header or using WCF or WSE 2\3, but I’m only dependant on 2.0 of the Framework and am thinking of avoiding WCF. WSE seems to have gone away with VS 2008 so I’m currently left with the SOAP header extension as the only other means which is why I’m looking for suggestions.


    I dont care much about SSL, but I would rather login once then transmit user and pass in every header. Is their a easy way to use IIS's authentication instead of anonymous; this way even if via clear text the web services would be available for the session.


    What is the “preferred” way of securing web services?
