The web service is proved to be one of significant milestone in the evolution of distributed computing. Applications interoperate with programs providing simple services to deliver sophisticated value-added services. Web service proves to be a loosely coupled way of achieving complex operations with less ownership of the resources in a standard way. Variety of platforms and frameworks communicate with the aim of transferring the business intelligence, domain specific functionalities and so on. The communication between the server providing the service and the client revolves around two main web technologies such as World Wide Web, and Hyper Text Transfer Protocol. As specified earlier web service invocation is achieved due to collaboration of multiple entities on the web. The quality of service factors such as performance, reliability, security, response time, availability etc., are very important to enable this web service invocation. Among which security proves to be a challenging factor due to vulnerabilities in the web that is imposed on the usage of numerous methods, tools and technologies. In the same pace, numerous standards and mechanisms has been introduced to handle the security threats. It is found to be difficult to arrive at a complete solution or standard to address the security issues of web services. As an initiative to provide a broader perspective on security of web services the review presented could provide glimpses of security vulnerabilities and solutions available. © 2019, Springer-Verlag GmbH Germany, part of Springer Nature.
