    Access CF web service by https-post

    videveloper
      We are creating a web service to be consumed by outside vendors. One vendor does not have the ability to consume our web service through traditional means (via a method call, SOAP, etc.). They however can 'call' a web service using https-post.

      Let's say our web service is myWebService and the method name is myMethodName. I have discovered that one can 'call' this web service through an https-post using the following URL:

      https://www.myServer.com/myWebService.cfc?method=myMethodName

      This seems to work as if the web service was consumed in the traditional sense.

      Question: Does this pose any security issues for us if we allow external access to our web service via https-post?

      Thanks
