PeopleSoft functionality can be, and often is, exposed via so called REspresentational State Transfer (REST) services, also known as REST-based or RESTful services.

A typical call to such service is via an URL like http://host:port/PSIGW/RESTListeningConnector/ServiceOperationName.V1/?param1=value1&param2=value2&...etc...

Some questions arise about how secure are such calls, and how to increase protection of their parameters and other data from evesdropping and unauthorized calls.
