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