    Client Authentication

    Michael Overton Newbie

      Hello All,

      This might be more appropriate for the beginner's section, but it is security related. Anyways, here's my situation.

      I am working on a thick-client application that utilizes JBoss for JMS. I have an appropriate database login module setup for that in my login-config.xml that works beautifully. However, I would like to implement an authentication scheme at application start up instead of just at initializing the JMS. What I am trying to figure out is how to point my login logic on the client to the already configured authentication policy in login-config.

      I have briefly looked into a lot of the JAAS documentation, but a lot of that seems more appropriate to applications sitting on the server as apposed to separate clients. Anyways, any hints, links or suggestions would be appreciated.

      Thanks!
