Enable local security

WebSphere eXtreme Scale provides several security endpoints to integrate custom mechanisms. In the local programming model, the main security function is authorization, and has no authentication support. You must authenticate independently from the already existing WebSphere Application Server authentication. However, you can use the provided plug-ins to obtain and validate Subject objects.

You can enable local security with the ObjectGrid XML descriptor file or programmatically.
