Pinned topic Simple Data Grid Security - user authentication

‏2013-04-22T23:34:07Z |

I have a requirement of securing access to data grids on XC-10 device allowing only specific users add/retrieve data from those grids. I have successfully used UserPasswordCredentialGenerator as credential generator class however it does not fully suite my needs as it requires providing username and password in client properties file. Multiple users can access my application and I need the solution that would sent current user credentials to XC-10 device.

I thought about using WSTokenCredentialGenerator class but could not make it work. Is credential token generated by that generator understood only by eXtreme Scale Server, not XC-10 device? If yes, is then the only option implementing custom credential generator that returns UserPasswordCredential instance?
