Can I secure SOAP web services using NGINX API Gateway ?

I need to know that

How to secure SOAP web services using NGINX's API gateway feature ?

** Current Implementation **

I have an application with rest interfaces and is secured by NGINX's AUTH_REQUEST module. For each request reaching NGINX,
AUTH_REQUEST sends a SubRequest to /login to the auth applicaiton which returns 200 OK if the credentials are correct and the user is
authorized to login.

** Question **

In the same application we have created SOAP web services and need WS-Security to secure the services. We want to use the NGINX to perform WS-Security authentication for SOAP web services also like the way its doing it for RESTful services. But the issue is sending a subrequest to /login which is written to handle RESTful service calls. And in SOAP services our design is to have client certificate authentication, so how can Nginx handle Ws-Sescurity for SOAP services.
