Authenticate users.
Background Information
Authentication is the process by which a user proves who he or she is when accessing a system.
Available Tools
Server authentication options
InterSystems provides the following options that enable you to authenticate users:
You can also allow all users to connect to the server without performing any authentication. This option is appropriate for organizations with strongly protected perimeters or in which neither the application nor its data are an attractive target for attackers.
For information, see the Security Administration Guide. Also see the Security Tutorial.
Availability: All namespaces.
Support for security-related SOAP specifications
InterSystems IRIS web service services and web clients can validate the WS-Security header element for inbound SOAP messages, as well as automatically decrypt the inbound messages. Generally speaking, this security header element can carry information that authenticates the sender. See Securing Web Services.
Availability: All namespaces.
The bindings and gateways also provide support for authentication, as discussed in the books for those bindings and gateways.
