Sun's JWSDP v1.5 does XML DSIG
and .NET does XML DSIG
so possibly you could "roll your own" by grabbing just the part of Sun JWSDP that you need
and using that within your AXIS app. 
I haven't tried this.

Subject: Digital Signatures and Axis 1.2 RC2/RC3

Hi all,
We've been investigating a way to certify that the client calling our server is really the
expected client.  We came across digital signatures (SOAP-DSIG).
Is this a supported feature by Axis?  Or do I need to install WSSE as well?  Is it supported
as well by .NET in a compatible way?
In our case, the server-side processing could be an Handler intercepting the SOAP request,
looking for SOAPSEC, get the signature and valid it.  But we would like to avoid as much as
possible WSSE4J (time constraints, nothing personal...).
