While calling a DFS service, the username and password is passed in header as clear text. Anyone who intercepts the SOAP request will be able to see the password.

Is there a way that password can be passed in an encrypted format?

 

Thank You

        Hi!

Consider using SOAP over SSL Thats the standard way. ;)
