Connect-SOAP wraps XML content in a SOAP envelope. With Connect-HTTP, the message content is whatever you want it to be, including XML. If the service you are connecting to expects SOAP content, use Connect-SOAP, particularly if there is WSDL that describes the service. Otherwise, Connect-HTTP is more flexible.

End-end message security is given using HTTPs. It uses both GET or POST method.
