Use HTTPS instead of HTTP.

or use TripleDES or some other encryption to encrypt and decrypt the xml
going each way.

You can secure web services by using Role Based Secuirty, You can take
advantage of Windows Authentication (if your web service is running on
interanet). You can also use SSL (Https) for secure communication. Moreover
you can secure particular parts of your messege by encrpyting them. For this
purpose you can use SOAP EXTENSIONS and override ProcessMessege function and
can encrypt data AfterSerialize event.
