Subject: OASIS Member News:Reactivity Demos WS-Security Interoperability

Reactivity Demos WS-Security Interoperability

Participates in 14-Vendor OASIS WS-Security Interop Event at Gartner Summit

BELMONT, CA, ApRIL 27, 2005 Reactivity®, Inc. the leader in secure XML infrastructure, last week participated with 13 other industry leaders for the first time to demonstrate interoperability of the WS-Security OASIS Standard at the Gartner Application Integration and Web Services Summit in Los Angeles.  The Reactivity Security Gateway demonstrated its ability to interoperate with products from the other vendors during the exchange of messages protected by WS-Security using the X.509 Token Profile.

WS-Security provides the foundation layer for a variety of secure Web services, laying the groundwork for higher-level facilities such as federation, policy and trust.  The standard defines a set of Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) extensions, or message headers, that can be used to implement integrity and confidentiality in Web services applications, and allows a wide range of key security methods such as authentication and access control to be reliably, readily associated with SOAP messages.

Gartner analyst Ray Wagner described WS-Security as “the standard for the majority of Web services...committing to it now will allow enterprises to easily modify the security profile of deployed Web services in the future.”

"Reactivity first demonstrated successful WS-Security interoperability at the Web Services Security Technical Committee gathering in June 2003, and we are excited to be participating in this much broader WS-Security OASIS InterOp event at the Gartner Summit,” said Andrew Nash, CTO of Reactivity.  “Reactivity fully supports the efforts of the OASIS WS-Security technical committee, and is committed to providing interoperable XML Web service security products.”

“With 14 participants demonstrating interoperability, this event provided clear evidence of the maturity of the WS-Security OASIS Standard,” said Patrick Gannon, president and CEO of OASIS.  “The array of proven, interoperable solutions available today means enterprises can feel confident adopting WS-Security for their organizations.”

OASIS (Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards) is a not-for-profit, international consortium that drives the development, convergence, and adoption of e-business standards.  The consortium produces open standards for Web services, security, e-business, and standardization efforts in the public sector and for application-specific markets.
