Introduction

This book includes user notes organized for Microsoft CRM SOAP-based web services security. Java is used as the primary language to illustrate some of the ideas. With 2016, MS CRM has moved on to newer Web API based on OData 4.0/RESTful-style data access but the SOAP based services are still available and will be for some time. Most of the notes are low-level and their implementation is usually covered by libraries and frameworks. Nearly everyone can ignore the details and hence these notes, thank goodness.

These notes were collected over the years and consolidated into this document. I need to fill in some of the blanks which I'll do over time.
