Configuring Authentication by the Cache Server

Configuring Authentication by the Cache Server

When the cache server receives client credentials during the handshake operation, the server authenticates the client with the callback configured in the security-client-authenticator system property. The handshake succeeds or fails depending on the results of the authentication process.

Here is an example of how you could configure security-client-authenticator in the gfcpp.properties file:

security-client-authenticator=templates.security.PKCSAuthenticator.create

In the preceding configuration sample, PKCSAuthenticator is the callback class implementing the Authenticator interface and create is its factory method.

The following example shows an implementation of the static create method:

public static Authenticator create() {
  return new PKCSAuthenticator();
}
