Thanks for the information. In our scenario, we are writing the web service and it will be our web site that will call them. I was concerned about the web site making AJAX calls to our web service since this would be coming from the client's browser. I wanted to make sure the data was being encrypted. I'm glad to hear it will be.

Yes and no. The actual request is encrypted, so no one can read your URL

parameters is probably stored in the log files of the server, your
browsers history, and can leak via referral headers.

I have a security question related to REST web services. If you use
https to
call a web service and the parameters are passed in the URL, are the
parameters encrypted? We are concerned about the data we are passing
and want make sure it is encrypted.
