WSSE Username Token is an authentication mechanism to include the user's credentials in the SOAP message headers which also works across firewalls and proxy servers.

However, the disadvantage of WSSE UsernameToken Authentication is that it transmits unencrypted passwords across the network. Therefore, you only should use this authentication when you know that the connection between the client and the server is secure. The connection should be established either over a dedicated line or by using Secure Sockets Layer.

Webservice Provider

Handler to protect your webservice with WSSE Username Token message level authentication.

Webservice Consumer

Handler to include user's credentials in webservice requests by using WSSE Username Token message level authentication. User's credentials are configured in config.ini by specifying the properties #username and #password of the respective AbstractWebServiceClient.
