I am fairly new to the DATAPOWER . I have a question, which could be a common problem.
I have a Multi Gateway protocol to proxy incoming requests to a back-end service.
HTTPS request -> MTGW --> Backend HTTPS.
when the MTGW intercepts the incoming requests, before it proxies that request to back-end, it needs to send along an additional piece of information , say, a password (that MTGW gets from a remote LDAP , for example). This password is clear-text. I need to figure out a way to securely send this password ENCRYPTED to a back-end service and have this service know how to decrypt to get the clear-text password sent from the Datapower.
What would be the common ways to implement this ?
(The back-end app server is kerberized with a keytab. I wonder if the DP can make use of this keytab to securely send this password)
