    how to obtain the client login info inside the server-side l

    dsmith24456322 Newbie

      Hopefully just something I overlooked, but:

      I am wondering how my server-side login module is able to obtain any of the subject/principal information that the client-side JAAS loginmodule created.

      From the guide:

      "The [EJB] invocation includes the method arguments passed by the client along with the user identity and credentials from the client-side JAAS login.
      On the server side, the security check first requires authentication of the user invoking the call, which, as on the client side, involves a JAAS login."

      how does the sever JAAS login module obtain the "user identity and credentials from the client-side JAAS login"?

      Thanks,
      d.
