The Access Gate is a generic proxy for web services. It handles streaming-enabled redirection, authentication and authorisation as well as monitoring. Some weeks ago an administration panel was created to display the contents of its redirection mapping database. Usually, service registration is performed automatically as part of the deployment process. However, for people who want to use the Access Gate as a standalone tool to protect legacy services, so far the only way to create mappings was to modify the database directly.

Today, the TinySec URL page was added. It allows users to just specify a locally accessible SOAP endpoint which turns it into a secure, globally accessible endpoint with WS-Security support. No more excuses for unprotected web services!

Enter a SOAP endpoint to make it securely globally accessible!
