Doug Kaye's thoughts on web services, web hosting and managed services.

PC Magazine on Web Services, If you doubt that web services have hit the mainstream, consider that the venerable PC Magazine October 1, 2003 issue cotains a full 10 print pages on the topic. And that's out of an issue that's only 150 pages total.

Web-Services Security. We (vendors and users)have focused our efforts on web-services security around the protocols, application firewalls, etc. But as we deploy external web services--in which we share information with parties not under our control--the real issue becomes one of trust. How (if at all) can you be sure that an external party will treat your information with the degree of confidentiality you require? Even if it's agreed to contractually, how can you enforce it, and how can you be confident your data is safe? I don't have the answers (sorry :-)) but I believe this is the real issue that's been largely ignored. Using the worlds latest and greatest encryption and security-assertion technologies don't mean a thing if the party on the other end doesn't play by your rules.
