Authentication in SOAP/PHP

Hi!
I built a web service in php, everything is fine. Now I have got to think about authentication: the application that is calling my web service have got to send me a login/password in some way... what can I do? I don't want to simply send and read a post parameter but to use soap header. Can you help?

Thank you so much for reading.

P.S: I am using nuSoap.

NoSOAP doesn't support HTTP authentication, which is what you'd normally use, but I've heard that you can make it work by specifying the id/pass in the URL. PHP5's SOAP extension does it.

ok, but specifiying it in the url means that I have got to use get method and this is not really useful ;-)
what about php5's soap extension? how to use it?

You may be able to use the same URL in a POST request. PHP5's SOAP docs are here:
