Subject Re: WSRM in combination with WS-Security: timestamp problem
Date Thu, 15 Aug 2013 10:05:37 GMT
Hi all,

Sorry for my late response. Not sure if the problem is still actual but
responding on it anyway.

I must say I can't completely recall which issues I exactly ran into while
combining the ws-rm and ws-security standards since it has been a while.
As far as I remember we ran into the following issues:
- receiving end of the ws-rm messages was only expecting the signing and
encryption of the 'real' message and not the ws-rm lifecycle messages.
Solved it by adding the filters in the bus configuration so it would affect
all messages going out or in.
- add support for signatureConfirmation in the response for non-repudiation
- replay-attack due to retries (temporary solved by setting Acknowledgement
interval to 0. The return message then will contain the acknowledgeheaders
as well)
- inorder combined with exactlyOnce and using solely piggybacking as
acknowledgement mechanism is causing an endless loop of retransmissions
until a new message (so not a retransmitted one) is sent to the server.
reason is that the exactlyOnce is cause a soapfault for retransmitted
messages but it contains no acknowledgement headers. Possible ways to solve
this is using a public acksTo address (so not anonymous) or combining it
with ws-makeConnection (not tested).

But I agree with Dennis that the issue described by Carlos seems more like
a configuration issue. I didn't run into this while doing the tests. I also
didn't use jaxws client but I used the simple frontend client proxy to get
a client instance. Maybe that's the reason why I didn't ran into the same

Hope it helps.
