Tutorial: Integrate WebSphere eXtreme Scale security in a mixed environment with an external authenticator

This tutorial demonstrates how to secure WebSphere eXtreme Scale servers that are partially deployed in a WAS environment.

In the deployment for this tutorial, the container servers are deployed in WAS. The catalog server is deployed as stand-alone server, and is started in a Java Standard Edition (Java SE) environment.

Because the catalog server is not deployed in WAS, you cannot use the WAS Authentication plug-ins. For more information about the process of configuring WAS Authentication plug-ins, see Tutorial: Integrate WebSphere eXtreme Scale security with WAS. In this tutorial, a different authenticator is required for catalog server authentication. You configure a keystore authenticator to authenticate the clients.
