Http Authentication for SOPA Messages in PHP - 2 Minutes Introduction

Thursday, September 25, 2008

Yesterday I wrote about authenticating users using Username token which is a more SOA friendly way of doing authentication. Because it is handled in Message level and clearly defined in WS-Security Specification.

But if you want to do Http Basic Authentication you can still use WSF/PHP as your client. Here is a blog How you send Basic Authentication information with your SOAP message in PHP. Note that here authentication is handled in trasport layer. So this approach is only valid if you are using HTTP transport which is the most common transport to use in web services.
