Metro + WS-Security

I've been learning about securing web services during the last past days. I'm using GlassFish, Netbeans, and Metro.

I did the examples provided in the security section of the tutorial Exam-Objectives-5.pdf (from basic authentication to mutual authentication).

Now I have to implement WS-Security on the web services I have already built.

I've been looking an reading out there but I'm still confused about what I have to do in order to implement WS-Security.

I'd appreciate if some one point me out to the right direction to start implementing WS-Security.

Thank you very much.

Rafael Angarita.

Doesn't your scenario resemble one of the ones in that tutorial, so that you could take it as a starting point? If not, maybe the user's guide ( has something that helps.

There are no examples of using WS-Security in my study notes, only theoretical information.
Take a look at the following tutorial:
Hope it is of use to you!
I agree. Here's the link:
