Security Drilldown in Web Services Enhancements 2.0 by Don Smith

Don Smith has recently published the best article I have read on Web services security.  It is not light reading, but he does an incredible job putting very difficult to understand topics in very consumable bites with lots of why, what, and how.  It shows you how to get real work done using Web Services Enhancements for Microsoft .NET.

How many of you out there need to establish trust relationships with business partners (internal and external)?

Let me know what you think about this article and if you plan to implement WSE to solve your security problems.
