Subject [jira] [Created] (GEODE-1883) AuthInitializer should be made optional
Date Mon, 12 Sep 2016 15:06:20 GMT
Swapnil Bawaskar created GEODE-1883:

             Summary: AuthInitializer should be made optional
                 Key: GEODE-1883
             Project: Geode
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: security
            Reporter: Swapnil Bawaskar

{{AuthInitializer}} is the interface that a client must implement that provides credentials
that are verified by the server. The same interface is also used for peer authentication.

In order to configure {{AuthInitialize}} any Geode property starting with {{security-}} is
passed through to the {{AuthInitialize.getCredentials}} method.

For simple authentication where only a username and a password are required, users should
not really be required to implement the AuthInitialize interface in the presence of property

Geode should detect {{security-username}} and {{security-password}} properties in
OR file and use those for authentication.
