Encryption of Password in SOAP Header for CA Advanced Authentication Web Service

  • 1.  Encryption of Password in SOAP Header for CA Advanced Authentication Web Service

    Posted 10 days ago

    Hello Community,

    I'm currently integrating CA Advanced Authentication (formerly known as CA Strong Authentication) with a SOAP-based web service. I would like to know if the encryption of the password is done directly within the SOAP header when using this web service.

    From my understanding, best practices typically involve using HTTPS to encrypt the entire SOAP message during transit. However, I'm interested to learn if CA Advanced Authentication specifically encrypts the password within the SOAP header or if additional measures need to be taken.

    Could someone clarify this aspect for me? Any insights or recommendations on securing the integration with CA Advanced Authentication would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you in advance!

    Regards,

    Idaya
