Web Services in Blackboard: How is it secured?

Question asked by cdeville on Oct 1, 2015

To be blunt, when I open up operations in Gradebook.WS such as saveColumns to "Permit Any Authorized Access," what's to stop a random attacker from accessing Blackboard from the outside and changing a grade?

 

I am also trying to answer this question: Why would a SCORM package quiz require access to certain web services in Blackboard?

 

I am attempting to run some tests with little success. So for those of you who already utilize web services, can you give me a rundown of how these calls to Blackboard are secured?

 

I welcome any broad answers to this question as well as just answers to my examples above. Thanks!
