I was doing some investigation into web service security, and ran across another nifty IBM tool: SMash. Smash (meaning secure mashups) is basically a technology designed to solve security problems when writing a mashup (a.k.a. situational application). These applications generally consume data/information from several different web services, and you need to ensure that there are measures in place to secure the data that they give to their calling applications.
The only issue I see with this is that it's non-standard. If the future is in services, seems like we should strive to come together and come up with a standards based way to do web service security (would WS-Security fit here?).
