    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
      and finally,

      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.
