Client Authentication (InfoSphere Streams connector)
To provide additional security, you can configure client authentication to restrict Streams Web Server (SWS) connections to specified clients only.
By default, client authentication is not enabled for the InfoSphere Streams Console. If you enable and configure client authentication, the InfoSphere Streams Console allows HTTPS connections from trusted clients only. Otherwise, any user who is authorized to use the InfoSphere Streams instance and has access to the server and port that the InfoSphere Streams Console is running on, can log in using a valid user ID and password.
