Securing the Service Oriented Enterprise Training

Quick Enroll

Course#: WA1565

This 1-day course will prepare you to identify, define, diagnose, and implement a comprehensive security strategy for a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) initiative. SOA opens up a whole realm of security issues due to its ubiquity, decentralization, distributed, and even federated nature. Students will be exposed to a broad range of enterprise SOA security subjects, providing a solid foundational understanding of valid and in-valid approaches to designing and implementing SOA security.

Concepts in this course are re-enforced through a combination of group discussion, live demos and daily reviews.

  • Securing the Service Oriented Enterprise
  • Security Patterns within SOA
  • Service Layers
  • SOA Security Layering
  • Applying Traditional Security to SOA
  • SOA Security Standards
  • SOAP Primer
  • Digging into WS-Security
  • Advanced SOA Security
  • SOA Security Threats and Countermeasures
  • Governing SOA Security
  • SOA Security Tools

Security architects, analysts, and managers as well as system architects and application developers.


Familiarity with SOA core concepts and elements required. Also a working knowledge of basic enterprise security principles and terminology highly recommended.
