Introduction: Integrate WebSphere eXtreme Scale security with WAS using the WAS Authentication plug-ins

In this tutorial, you integrate WebSphere eXtreme Scale security with WAS. First, you configure authentication with a simple web application that uses authenticated user credentials from the current thread to connect to the ObjectGrid. Then, you investigate the encryption of data that is transferred between the client and server with transport layer security.

To give users varying levels of permissions, you can configure Java Authentication and Authorization Service (JAAS). After completing the configuration, you can use the xsadmin tool to monitor the data grids and maps.

This tutorial assumes that all of the WebSphere eXtreme Scale clients, container servers, and catalog servers are deployed in the WAS environment.
