Coldfusion: SOAP Security Header Problem

OVERVIEW
I need to make a secure SOAP request with Coldfusion , and I'm having trouble implementing the headers properly so the service can use it.

There are two structure examples I was given

Example 1:
This is a sample soap request:

POST /WebService/EmployerWebServiceV24.asmx HTTP/1.1
Host: stage.e-verify.uscis.gov
Content-Type: text/xml; charset=utf-8
Content-Length: length
SOAPAction: "https://www.vis-dhs.com/EmployerWebService/EmpCpsVerifyConnection"

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<soap:Envelope xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
  <soap:Body>
    <EmpCpsVerifyConnection xmlns="https://www.vis-dhs.com/EmployerWebService/" />
  </soap:Body>
</soap:Envelope>

Open in new window


Example 2:
An example SOAP authentication HEADER would look something like:

<soap:Envelope xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"
xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
    <soap:Header>
        <wsse:Security soap:mustUnderstand="1">
            <wsse:UsernameToken namespaces>
                <wsse:Username>username</wsse:Username>
                <wsse:Password Type="type info">password</wsse:Password>
                <wsse:Nonce>nonce</wsse:Nonce>
                <wsu:Created>date created</wsu:Created>
            </wsse:UsernameToken>
        <wsse:Security>
    </soap:Header>
    <soap:Body>
        <WebServiceMethodName xmlns="Web Service Namespace" />
    </soap:Body>
</soap:Envelope>

Open in new window


IMPORTANT
I was able to create a successful connection to this web service without including header information.
To use other functions I need a properly working header which works.
This is my code for the successful connection without the headers. (So you can reproduce it)


<cfsavecontent variable="request_xml">
<cfoutput>
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<soap:Envelope xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
  <soap:Body>
    <EmpCpsVerifyConnection xmlns="https://www.vis-dhs.com/EmployerWebService/" />
  </soap:Body>
</soap:Envelope>
</cfoutput>
</cfsavecontent>
<!--- Make Request --->
<cfhttp url="https://stage.e-verify.uscis.gov/WebService/EmployerWebServiceV24.asmx?wsdl" method="post" result="httpResponse">
  <cfhttpparam type="header" name="SOAPAction" value="https://www.vis-dhs.com/EmployerWebService/EmpCpsVerifyConnection" />
  <cfhttpparam type="header" name="accept-encoding" value="no-compression" />
  <cfhttpparam type="body" value="#trim(request_xml)#" />
</cfhttp>
<!--- Show Response --->
<cfdump var="#httpResponse#" label="httpResponse">
<cfdump var="#xmlParse( httpResponse.fileContent )#" label="soapResponse">

Open in new window


PROBLEM

When I insert my header into the request, then it throws me an error saying "code:InvalidSecurityToken"
(Replace cfsavecontent with this)

<!--- Define Nonce --->
<cfscript>
  strNonce = ToBase64(createUUID());
</cfscript>
<cfsavecontent variable="request_xml">
<cfoutput>
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<soap:Envelope xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
  <soap:Header>
	<wsse:Security soap:mustUnderstand="1" xmlns:wsse="http://docs.oasis-open.org/wss/2004/01/oasis-200401-wss-wssecurity-secext-1.0.xsd">
		<wsse:UsernameToken wsu:Id="UsernameToken-1" xmlns:wsu="http://docs.oasis-open.org/wss/2004/01/oasis-200401-wss-wssecurity-utility-1.0.xsd">
            <wsse:Username>ARIC1124</wsse:Username>
            <wsse:Password Type="http://docs.oasis-open.org/wss/2004/01/oasis-200401-wss-username-token-profile-1.0##PasswordText">myPassword</wsse:Password>
            <wsse:Nonce>#strNonce#</wsse:Nonce> 
            <wsu:Created>#Dateformat(Now(),'yyyy-mm-ddThh:mm:ss')#Z</wsu:Created>
		</wsse:UsernameToken>
	</wsse:Security>
  </soap:Header>
  <soap:Body>
    <EmpCpsVerifyConnection xmlns="https://www.vis-dhs.com/EmployerWebService/" />
  </soap:Body>
</soap:Envelope>
</cfoutput>
</cfsavecontent>

OTHER SOLUTIONS I HAVE TRIED:
I have tried to use createObject + AddSOAPRequestHeader + cfinvoke but nothing seems to work for me

WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR FROM THE EXPERTS:
I want a complete cfm code file which would include my header that works.

I cancelled my membership to this site because this is a complete joke!
I have a working example above, and not one of your "experts" could even bother to copy paste that to check it out. Just admit that your site doesn't even attempt to help people. It's just a money making scheme.
