I'm no .NET expert, but it should be possible to invoke a remote method
using SOAP over HTTP/S instead of plain HTTP, shouldn't it? In this
case, you won't need to encrypt at the client, then decrypt at the
server, since the whole session is SSL-protected by using whatever
cyphers are configured (for example, 3DES+RSA+MD5).

You can take a look at
http://e-docs.bea.com/wls/docs70/webserv/security.html#1060370 for an
example on how to implement a secure web service using WebLogic. I
assume this must be possible to achieve using .NET.
