IBM, Microsoft and Verisign have published a new Web services security specification to help organisations build secure, broadly interoperable Web services applications.

The new specification - WS-Security - supports, integrates and unifies several popular security models, mechanisms and technologies, allowing a variety of systems to interoperate in a platform and language-neutral manner in a Web services context.

IBM and Microsoft plan to develop the WS-Security specification in close collaboration with platform vendors, application developers, network and infrastructure providers and customers.

Dr. Phillip Hallam-Baker, principal scientist at VeriSign and co-author of the WS-Security specification, said: "The industry is making solid inroads on the interoperability front and the new WS-Security specification is among a series of open security specifications paving the way for widespread adoption of trusted Web services."
