Message Authentication over SSL

The Message Authentication over SSL mechanism attaches a cryptographically secured identity or authentication token with the message and use SSL for confidentiality protection.

By default, a Username Supporting Token will be used for message authentication. To use an X.509 Supporting Token instead, click the Configure button and select X509. Under this scenario, you will need to configure your system for using SSL as described in Configuring SSL For Your Applications.
