WSE2 : signing messages with derivedkeyTokens

in my old Non-WSE method of doing web services security, I had to get a token from the webserver and have it time out after 2 minutes’then get another one. This was to protect myself from someone discovering and using that token while it was valid. they could do that, but 2 minutes is not enough time to do much damage. But it was still a kludge.

Now WSE2 hasderivedkeyTokenswhich forces a different hash of your username token each time you stick it into your soap header. Cool. Benjamin Mitchell wrote more on this here.
