Best practices for fine grained WS authentication

    This is hopefully a basic web service security question.
    I have two separate systems (system A and system B) which have their
    own username/password based authentication schemes. Being fairly new to
    the WS world I'd like to ask what are the most simple or powerful
    techniques for accomplishing the following;
    1. Authenticating web service requests from system A to system B so
    that B can be sure they originated from A.
    2. Authenticating web service requests on behalf of specific users of
    system A by system B so that appropriate access capabilities can be
    enforced.
    I couldn't find a more appropriate newsgroup for asking this generic
    question about web service authentication. Any pointers to more
    specific newsgroups appreciated,
    Thanks
