public interface: ServerAuthConfig [javadoc | source]

All Implemented Interfaces:
    AuthConfig

This interface describes a configuration of ServerAuthConfiguration objects for a message layer and application context (e.g., the messaging context of a specific application, or set of applications).

Implementations of this interface are returned by an AnthConfigProvider.

Callers interact with a ServerAuthConfig to obtain ServerAuthContext objects suitable for processing a given message exchange at the layer and within the application context of the ServerAuthConfig. Each ServerAuthContext object is responsible for instantiating, initializing, and invoking the one or more ServerAuthModules encapsulated in the ServerAuthContext.

After having acquired a ServerAuthContext, a caller operates on the context to cause it to invoke the encapsulated ServerAuthModules to validate service requests and to secure service responses.

Method from javax.security.auth.message.config.ServerAuthConfig Summary:
getAuthContext
Method from javax.security.auth.message.config.ServerAuthConfig Detail:
 public ServerAuthContext getAuthContext(String authContextID,
    Subject serviceSubject,
    Map properties) throws AuthException

    Get a ServerAuthContext instance from this ServerAuthConfig.

    The implementation of this method returns a ServerAuthContext instance that encapsulates the ServerAuthModules used to validate requets and secure responses associated with the given operation.

    Specifically, this method accesses this ServerAuthConfig object with the argument operation to determine the ServerAuthModules that are to be encapsulated in the returned ServerAuthContext instance.

    The ServerAuthConfig object establishes the request and response MessagePolicy objects that are passed to the encapsulated modules when they are initialized by the returned ServerAuthContext instance. It is the modules´┐Ż responsibility to enforce these policies when invoked.
