Web Service is relatively new and a relevant area. The security issues of Web Services in a distributed environment are a major concern of research. The service provider facing a lot of problems when it provides users to avail the Web services. So, the Web service security is one of the thrust areas of research both in industry as well as in academia. The present work is mainly focusing on security issues of Web Services and its challenges. In this paper, a study on the existing standards and protocols such as the service oriented architecture of the Web services, the role of XML, WSDL, SOAP, and the UDDI in the Web services, security issues with its challenges is carried out.
