    Securing Cluster: JGroup AUTH

    Matthew Holloway Newbie

      I'm trying to 'secure' a JBoss cluster (3 nodes) so that new nodes that are put up on the network do not join without proper authorization.

      I have configured the cluster-service.xml to give the cluster a unique name, so I can avoid problems with the default settings. What I would like to do, however, is secure it such that a node must pass some authorization to join (such as a username/password from an LDAP repository).

      I have been searching for information on the JGroups AUTH, but is seems to be few and far between (only these urls, not very useful: http://blogs.jboss.com/blog/bela/2005/12/16/JGroups_and_authentication_or_how_AUTH_came_to_be.txt and
      http://wiki.jboss.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=Authentication
      and finally,
      http://wiki.jboss.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=JGroupsAUTH)

      Is there more information out there on setting this up that I'm not looking in the right place for? This seems like it should be somewhat trivial, but I can't find it...

      Thanks for help or pointers.
