Using web services, is there a way to assign a list item different security than the rest of the list?

Lets say I have 3 rows in the list and 2 different groups.

    1. A ; Group A & B can see
    2. B ; Group A & B can see
    3. C ; Group A & B can see

Next I add a new row via web services, but during the adding of this new row, I would also like to be able to change the row level permission to only allow Group B to see this new row #4

    4. D ; Group B can see.

What web service call can I make to do this? Which asmx?

I am using MOSS 2007, and app works on a different machine, hence web services. Thanks.

From what I've seen, it is not possible to it with the out of the box web services. This blog article shows how to create your own web service to do that including the source code.
