Vordel unveils latest version of industry's favorite Web Services security test tool
Version 3.1 of Vordel SOAPbox released at RSA Security Conference
Vienna, Austria, 17 October, 2005 - RSA Security Conference Europe 2005 - Vordel, the XML Web Services security company, today unveiled the latest version of Vordel SOAPbox, the world's most widely used security testing tool for Web Services. With over 5,000 registered users, SOAPbox is the product of choice for testing Web Services for security compliance.
SOAPbox fast-tracks the creation and deployment of security frameworks to protect XML applications, by testing compliance with both internal and external security guidelines. By providing a graphical environment in which security tokens, digital signatures, and encrypted XML are highlighted, SOAPbox removes the time and complexity associated with generating XML security test cases.
Qpass, the leading mobile software and services infrastructure provider, uses Vordel SOAPbox to test the access to its secure Web Services interfaces. Patrick van der Hyde, lead integration engineer with Qpass, said "I work with hundreds of different companies that do integration work against our APIs and trying to get them to test out API posts with client authentication is always a challenge. The SOAPbox tool gives me a solution for them to use without having to do any coding."
Vordel CTO, Mark O'Neill, reinforced this message by stating "SOAPbox addresses an important point in the Web Services development cycle by allowing Web Services to be tested for security compliance. It also allows organizations to test the client-side connections to their Web Services and this helps them to quickly build out a secure Web Services network."
The latest features of Vordel SOAPbox 3.1 include:
- Sample SOAP messages
Get started quickly with a range of example SOAP messages which are pre-configured to connect to public Web Services.
- XML Encryption and decryption
XML can be encrypted and decrypted easily, without coding. A sample encryption key is provided.
- SOAP attachments: Both DIME and MIME
Allows for testing SOAP attachments across both Java and .NET Web Services
- Graphical Keystore
Load multiple keys and certificates without using command-line tools. With the new keystore it is possible to encrypt XML for multiple recipients in one simple step.
- Remove Security Tokens
Automatically remove security tokens from messages so that you can quickly and simply move on to your next test.
- Specify Transfer Encoding
Configure XML encoding declarations of the message so XML processor will use the declaration to determine the character encoding of the message.
Vordel SOAPbox is available for Windows, Linux and Solaris.
