SSL to a Web Service - do both ends need SSL? RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1446953740 posted

    If I have a form that submits to a web service on another server, does the SSL on the form take care of the transaction, or does the Web Service have to be SSL as well?

    Yes, it would appear that both sides may need to use SSL according to this MSDN article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307267 Caveat, they mention windows 2000 but I surmise the rules would still be the same since SSL hasn't changed.

    Thanks for the tip. Sorry about the placement. I thought this seemed more like an SSL question than a Web Service question.
