    No WS security, not even webservices ;-)
    Just simple encryption (a .dll doing 3des encryption) of specific XML
    fields in an XML file, transported between the client and the server via
    No encryption mode, that is ECB basically.

    As I said, I did a small application calling their routine to decrypt
    the fields without specifying the key.
