Hi all, I�ve a doubt regarding web services security. If I configure a web service to expect a security header(basically signed, encrypted soap message) and the soap message that is sent to the web service is not having any encryption or signature as expected by web service, should the web service process that soap message or flag a soap fault saying the message is not secured as expected. In case of axis, it processes the soap message without caring for security header part of soap message although it is configured for security settings. Is it a proper behavior or not?
hi ulf, i'm using axis 1.4, and headers are properly sent, my question is if axis is expecting security header and no security header is present should if fail or not(not failing in my case)and in case security header is present but not proper like certificate is wrong or some other fault, it fails, which is fine.

hi, this is my configuration for handling security header my axis client get as a part of soap response
here as you can see its is expecting the response to be encrypted, signed and having a username token, but if i send the following response not containing any of the expected security stuff inside security header(blank security header), it works fine thts my concern, is this behavior fine ?
