Vol. 6  No. 1  pp. 154~170


Web Services make it easy for organisations to participate in real time communication. The inevitable challenge facing organisations today is to implement adequate Web Services security. The attacks on Web Services might cause halt of the entire network communication or expose confidential information in an organisation. In this paper, we present, Web Services security and security concerns together with analysis of possible attacks on SOAP implementation of XML Web Services over HTTP . We will discuss some important questions about Web Services vulnerabilities emphasized by a study based on investigation of security problems in XML Web Services, and interviews with security experts. The result of this study is presented as possible attacks on XML Web Services.
