If you have decryption keys then write an helper function using
bcrypt-ruby
lib's general crypto algorithms. Also don't store keys in source code
but
in environment.

Well the specifics will depend on how the response was encrypted, but
ruby's openssl library contains most of the raw crypto stuff you're
likely
to need. There are also some higher level libraries that are supposed to
be
easier to work with (eg ezcrypto) although I'm not very familiar with
these.

Thanks all for reply.

API team is not going to provide any information but they said following
things will resolve our issue:-
1. Create an encryption DLL and add it to the SoapExtension section
2.   Tell clients to purchase SSL certificate otherwise the data that is
being transferred will be ‘in the clear’
3.      Create your own SSL certificate and install on client’s computer


SSL certificate sound good. I am using "savon 2".
