Info Sec,

That is a hard question to answer.  There are different types of Web
Services, each type has multiple implimenations, and each implimetnation
allows for different configuration options.

The security testing is different depending on type, the implimentation,
and the configuration of each web service.

For a high level overview of Web Service Security, I have found the
following document helpful:

Some tools that you can use to test web services are:

Any web proxy (Burp Suite, Fiddler, ZAP, etc) - For all web services
SoapUI - for SOAP based web services where you have access to the WSDL
Oyedata - For RESTful web services that use OData

Good luck.  Hopefully someone else on the list can provide more
