Subject Question about WS-Security
Date Tue, 14 Mar 2006 13:24:02 GMT
I am studying on WS-Security and have a question about it.
As far as I understand it, WS-Security defines security elements in 
header part of the SOAP messages, by combining WS-Signature and 
WS-Encryption standards.

I think it is possible to define security elements in body part of the 
SOAP message, not in header part.
In my opinon, there would be a reason why security elment is described 
in header part in WS-Security.

If there is anyone who knows this reason or trade-off between two 
approaches, please give me your opinion.
