For one of our customers we’ve been working on securing their web services with Secure Ticket Service (STS). The setup involves a Liferay Portal that authenticates the users using OpenSSO Express 8. The portlets make SOAP calls to a JBoss 5.1 server that has some EJB’s exposed as a web service provider.
