Other options also include HTTP authentication (where HTTP serves as the transport for SOAP - See the SOAP::Lite cookbook at http://cookbook.soaplite.com/ for examples) and ticket-based authentication (see http://guide.soaplite.com/ or http://www.perl.com/pub/a/2001/04/24/soap.html). I have used this latter method previously in SOAP services that I have written.
