A first idea about a connection between xm-axis and xml-security would that 
the interface code is added to the xml-security code base.

This code is compiled if xml-axis is available and it could look like that 
you create a SOAPSigner or a SOAPVerifier which (in a first step) sign or 
verify a org.apache.axis.Message object.
